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
Topics regarding layoffs at GE Digital
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?
So now the business take the lead of a 1.2 bn$ company, 90% of it being legacy software. Most of the leaders of GE Digital left, only the most political and least capable still there - i dont know for how long...
Matthias and Binu have thrown away hundreds of thousands of dollars on travel and b---s--- slideware in BHGE digital. I can only hope this catches up to them.
NewCo employees will come to know their bonus for 2018 in March. When will it show up the paycheck? Is everybody planning to head for the exits after bonus payday? — read more
Is SM locked in for the spot?
The perennial butt kisser finally realized that there are no more butts to kiss at GED and has left to go kiss butts at Service Max by Silver Lake. Wonder what he's going to do when he realizes he cannot IBS his mistakes to other parts of the... — read more
With service max moved out the office in San Ramon is a ghost town. Guess that’s what happens when you over hire, then fire immediately and buy and sell companies immediately. Wonder when Larry will finally pull the plug on the west coast office and... — read more
They are showering money on those luxurious predix foundries and poach people with high salaries from competitors, but Coretech laid off employees in Oct. Half of the contractors were or will be terminated by the end of this year.
GE Digital is asking a preselected group of people to volunteer for a massive layoff on 6/28. They are offering a cash incentive in addition to regular layoff benefits. — read more
Come on, there's no reason to wait. Just tell us we are getting paid to go find a glorious new job
I'm sick of feeling devalued. I'm sick or reorg after reorg. I am taking the package. Digital leadership has no clue what they are doing and making it all up as they go. If they want to sell Predix they need to stop running a day care and get some... — read more
Pretty accurate prediction by one day. Forty got let go for roles opening in the US Market! They obviously will deny this! Edmonton got hit hard yesterday for posts that can be filled in the US Market. GE Energy Connection Employees was also... — read more
Doesn't look like cost cutting is going as planned, possibly another RIF come Sept. Anyone heard anything?
What kind of statement is this? We give up on everything now. You may as well close the shop. http://fortune.com/2017/09/06/general-electric-cloud-pivot/ — read more
...and am so happy about it now... I exercised all my options earlier this year at 29 something, so I missed last years peak in November or whenever it was unfortunately. So I have no financial ties to GE anymore, but I spent over a decade and a half... — read more
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. — read more
OK, nothing more to add - so long friends.
I think that the GE Digital Organization has their heads buried in the sand. Needing to reduce heads, and today they put out their we are awesome letter bragging about the success of hiring over 2,300 talented team members globally in key roles this... — read more
I guess we all agree GE is in somewhat of a mess. They will fix stockholders perception with the big cost cutting. The underlying issue is there core businesses revenues look bleak. They say GE Digital has the potential to be major revenue generator... — read more
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
Is the hiring freeze still on and if yes, do you guys have any plans for removing it?
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
We start to get farewell emails. What about you?
G.E. Digital San Ramon - gloomy outlook, layoffs coming. 20-25% staff reduction coming. They already consolidated from 3 building to 2 and only 1 would be needed after the next round.
We sold Capital (and look at how well synchrony is doing) and paid for the garbage that is Predix? And we sold NBC and Plastics and Appliances (monogram use was sold with that one), and we got nothing except a static stock price. So what happened... — read more
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.
But does it still make sense if GE is selling $20B worth of businesses? Say Transportation IT will need to align back to Transportation? What a waste of time.
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.
All presales in Americas laid off at GE Digital. They are opening a small # of positions using the well known "eliminate all roles, force you to reapply, so we can claim no favoritism" RIF technique but looks like it will shrink considerably... — read more
Emails distributed today, meetings scheduled for tomorrow. We'll have more details soon, this will be sad...
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
I heard an APM team got let go
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
