First rounds of RIF’s for Digital happening April 15th. I care about my employees and want to give them as much notice as possible.
There will be more coming this quarter. Topic of discussion at recent SLT meeting. Other locations too. Any chance you can share which locations? Or will this be company-wide?

I figured Christmas is the best time to share this, maybe people will not be as cruel as other times when somebody says something that doesn't agree with the majority. Say what you will about GED, but it is still one of the best jobs I've ever... — read more

What is future of Predix ? I am seeing no communication, development or investment in it and it has had several outages in past few months for which no RCA given. I am beginning to believe the rumors that it's going to be shutdown in 2020.

How many employee are left in San Ramon? We keep hearing that the number 1800.
So... After waiting 10 months to hear something about NewCo, Pat comes to the all hands saying there is going to be a delay and we should stay "customer focused". C'mon - didn't Steve Martin already wear out the European works council excuse and... — read more
The exit of about 68k BHGE employees, 10k Transportation and power layoffs will reduce company size to around 185K in 2019. So i believe corporate, global ops and IT types staff will be reduced because they have about 100k less employees to support... — read more
Is setting this up as a separate company the only way to show that GE divisions are customers and thus "real" revenue ?
That’s actually not good for GED. https://gallery.mailchimp.com/199a11600490e42b3dcf6d2ee/files/fa29f469-c222-4a94-a324-ccf2cfea50ef/20190815GEWhistleblower_Report.pdf
Layoffs are going on at GE Corporate. The layoffs are selectively informed to the employees and not in major announcement.

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/07/25/pivotalfordwrite_down/ GE cashed out of its investment holdings last year with some profit before Pivotal crashed. Reading the article it mirrors an awful lot of GE Digital. Me Thinks NewCO should merge... — read more
Virtually no experience in the software business, nor in enterprise solutions. Mostly niche hardware stuff. No familiarity with high growth tech areas critical to GED and its customers. Only qualification is being a friend and minion of Culp. This... — read more
Byrne From Danaher connection. Acting CEO Martin leaving. Eddie is leaving too. Cleaning house from top, long overdue but this has been the problem for GED all along. Each leadership change resets their strategy and their target market. — read more
It’s summer. It’s going to be quiet. My guess is you’ll see some more cuts at the end of Q3 when it’s clear they can’t make their numbers and still don’t have a newco or a real ceo. There will be more ‘painful decisions’ made then. Will they have... — read more
It’s been soo quite this days. What’s going on, any rumors about the Newco and spinoffs ?
GED is committing s--c-de by not providing a clear path forward - business and product - for current and prospective clients. This is hugely irresponsible and not fair to those who are still on the job trying to make it work. Who is “Culp”-able for... — read more
At least in customer success. I guess it was bound to happen with the collaborative delivery model...
Perhaps Larry is trying hard to break it up and sell it off, and thus no need for a CEO?
There were VPs, and managers laid off, and Eddie said some of the pre-layoff departures were not voluntary (they let those people save face). Next cuts shouldn't affect GED much -- the cuts were deep, and you can't cut much deeper -- next cuts should... — read more
Good management is honest and open with its employees even when times are tough. It seems to me that we are purposefully left in a dark about what's happening at GE Digital. Layoffs come and go out of the blue, and each time we are left guessing if... — read more
Re-post-- What is happening? When is the next wave of cuts? When are we going to hear the layoffs of managers, VP's, EB's? Why are salesmen still employed here when there is nothing to sell? Does Derek know there is no value for the AI cr*p that... — read more
