GE Digital All Hands

Bill Ruh sounds drunk -- keeps saying things are "uncertain" and how hard that is for everyone. That's not the issue--the issue is that the leaders have looted the company and made poor decisions so we now need to be laid off. Bill Ruh should go... read more

Why no noise in media?

How come there's no mentioning of GE layoffs on the news? I saw an headlines of 150 people laidoff at ESPN, but no mentioning of huge and massive GE layoffs.

So much blame to go around

So much blame to go around. The endless ITLP and leadership programs that created ill experienced, arrogant mini monsters. The C level leadership who made disastrous investments and decisions. HR and people managers treating employees like garbage... read more

Stop guessing and blaming

Posters seem to be blaming everybody and guessing when and where layoffs will come. It seems to me just meaningless exercise. Here is what i have found out that may be interesting but realize we can't have any input into what is happening so it is... read more

Flannery presentation didn't show GE Digital

I attended Flannery Monday meeting and notice that digital wasn’t represented in the Preliminary revenue recognition standard transition impact: 2017 slide. Cannot be an oversight, why leave it out?

60 day notice??

If you are one of the ones who were given 60 days notice do you still get severance? That just seems cruel to expect these guys to work for two months and then give them nothing. When will they have time to find a job? Or are you on the books but not... read more

Layoffs are done!

Everyone who was cut has been notified in SR yesterday. No biggy! Only 10-15%. They got 60 days to find another job. Life goes on...

Predix needs to be scrapped!

GE started on Predix development too late and is charging its internal verticals too much, generating resentment towards the product and brand. Strategy error to go with roll-your-own IoT platform instead of sourcing from an actual IaaS/PaaS provider... read more

Shoe is dropping at GE Digital

GE Digital's Ruh has announced that role elimination start this week. They have been telling us for quite awhile that it is coming. Doesn't make it any easier. If your area is effected please post. I wish everyone the best.

Why is GE digital still hiring?

I still see new folks joining teams. Not just developers but SVP and VPs in the Predix org. Is GE not in a cash crunch? Should it not shed and optimize instead of hire from outside.

The latest App strategy will bring more changes

There are several scrum teams who have been sitting for the past 3 quarters waiting for a Product Strategy or roadmap to be in place. Many of the good engineers got so bored that they either quit or moved to other groups. This is in the Apps... read more

Outsource Global Ops

You want to save money Flannery? Time to dump the overpriced, over staffed, under performing Global Ops division. Call IBM and HP and they will do it cheaper and better. Every time Core Tech does a reorg it's just shifting the same people around and... read more

Fire Bill Ruh

The GE Digital story is really a shame. The mission and vision were correct. But the #1 mistake that doomed the whole thing was choosing Bill Ruh to run it. He's invisible as a leader in San Ramon. He can't keep executives, which causes reorg after... read more

I had no faith in Predix.

I enjoyed my 23 years. I really struggled with the decision to leave, but I am so glad I did. I was fortunate enough to retire early and put the VJRP money in a savings account. I had no faith in Predix.
