From today's all hands I'm getting the impression if there was a serious buyer before, they've backed out, OR there never was a serious buyer and they just assumed they'd have one by now. Wonder what will happen to us if no buyer comes though... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at GE Digital
The next big announcement should be a partnership with a major software developer and should happen 4Q 2018. The merger will morph Predix into a new direction to give an external image of a new version/approach to calm Wall Street. Internally the... read more
Beth Comstock Wrote a new book on how she made almost $4M per year Where was her courage and backbone in telling Jeff to stop his id--tic ideas I guess she was just a GE trophy wife.
Leave while GE Digital is still an asset on your resume. You don't want to be in a situation in which the reputation of the company is so shot that having worked here becomes a liability. Wouldn't be the first time it happened. Just ask the folks who... read more
We had buyers lining up to buy GE Capital’s assets. Because GE Capital produced astounding revenue for the company. Buyers are still interested in some of Capital’s remaining businesses like GECAS. What about GE Digital? I don’t see buyers lining up... read more
I'll take the lack of layoff chatter here as a sign we are not looking at any layoffs soon? Or am I missing something?
They’ve licensed Headspace. https://finance.yahoo.com/m/e6a6f3b2-631b-3bac-a376-4e6eda9f95ed/meditation-app-headspace-on.html
Is in shambles... Right now, it is only reacting to leadership whims - there is no 'go forward' strategy. I am disappointed and disillusioned - it's time to move on (probably long overdue)
As people leave, I can not believe the "quality" of the people left behind. It's embarrassing. Soon, there will be zero value. Please put out another GED and Microsoft partnership type announcement to make believe there is value so we can sell this... read more
I love the quick bytes. It’s like a legal proceeding in which the crooks won’t actually answer anything. Why not answer everything no comment and admit no one wants to take our phat a-- to the merger prom.
What is going to be presented at Minds and Machines? 1) How excited leadership is about their new owner? 2) A Pivot back to a platform led strategy and that Predix will be the new AWS? 3) That GE is all in on Digital despite massive cost cutting 4)... read more
bill r is your huckleberry lmao
It’s looking shaky at this point for sure. It the sale fails you can bet we will be training our replacements in India. As they ramp up they will cut staff in coretech. Check how many CI are being managed by coretech vs 1 year ago!! Do what you want... read more
I was laid off from GE Digital in March. During my job search I entered my resume info into multiple job search/resume sites as 'GE Digital'. Today I checked one resume site and the system changed it to 'Siemens Medical Solutions'.
Wonder how much this will derail project Phoenix and GED's foreign buyer? https://www.cbsnews.com/news/5-things-to-know-about-trump-china-congress-and-tech/
It’s been too quiet. No news is never good news at GE. It’s hard to know if one rides this out or cuts bait. If you survived this long a strong argument is to wait a few more months and see. Soon we will hit holiday season and it’s tough to switch... read more
Possible the only company that would think of purchasing us anymore could be McDonald's
Could we get a refreshed list of GED C-Suite Execs and where they are applying their "talents" now...Who's left?
GE stocks at all time low no correction in our direction other than liquidation of GE! Why the f if the board allowing this c-ap
Now that things have blown up in their face and the leadership dropping like flies, the service has gone from bad to worse. The people left behind are the 3rd and 4th stringers and they are mediocre at best. Decommissioning process is a joke. Billing... read more
Billy Ruh probably was asleep at the wheel for this one. He's probably going to deny it's existence. On another note props to uptake for the no holds bar competition to get customers, consumers are going to get a good deal on the price of these... read more
Speaking as an industry analyst, GED could have had a huge success with Predix. The right VISION was there (IoT data analytics), the huge SALES BASE was there (power, healthcare, aerospace)... But the EXECUTION (actual hardware/software) was a... read more
Ha Ha Ha! You guys got PAID serious money to go to work for GED, and KNEW that they had no real product, no real vision, and c-appy leadership. And now you are all surprised (!) that Jeff's brain fart magic dust business is falling apart? Really?... read more
Appears CT has no monetary value. Please dis-regard the confusion and carry on.
It's a joint venture, AutoZone and Disney!!
6 August DT business aligned people back to business. Bravo on execution of centralized DT. Where do the leftovers in DT go? Maybe in BR’s belly. To be regurgitated by the company soon for the unemployment line.
Bill Ruh might soon retire (or be retired). It will be impossible for him to find a job after the GED disaster, so he might write a book following Beth Comstock example. I thought we could help him with a catchy title. Something like “Burn $4B in 5... read more
Thoughts on posts by BR and JF? https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/ges-digital-long-game-william-ruh https://www.ge.com/reports/john-flannery-ges-long-digital-game/
It would be great if a consortium of CompuCom, LTI, and CBTS purchased CoreTech.
Word on the street is that NASA is interested in GE Digital. Has anybody heard similar?
Oh yea... He bailed about 6 months ago to the top competitor... Should have seen the writing on the wall. Fool me once....
I think we all saw this coming. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ge-looking-sell-digital-assets-181458939.html
Any new information on meetings from potential buyers? Which is most likely to acquire Coretech? Are any big names a remote possibility?
They should just play the Dukes of Hazzard theme song “Good ol’ Boys” in the background as they bloviate about how awesome of a collective team they believe they are today. If they are so great, why are we in this position?
