GE Digital Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at GE Digital

Byrne was a TERRIBLE choice

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

New CEO for 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

Q3

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

Customers won’t invest without clear future

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

Rough criminals

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.

Simon Says I'm Outta Here

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

Reorg after reorg!

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

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. —  read more

Detroit hub will probably take the brunt of layoffs

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

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

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.
