GE continues to look like an asteroid that is entering the atmosphere as it still burns through cash while cutting head count and dropping business segments. It has been shedding layer after layer and will likely soon disintegrate. I keep hearing... — read more
I know many companies have made changes to their severance since the start of the pandemic (talk about using a global catastrophe as an excuse to screw your employees over even more) and I haven't seen or heard anything about GEP. Does anybody know?... — read more

RS cleaned up Pwr Conversion and steam is on the block. SS is doing well with Gas. Now is the time for Power to come through with positive CF.
From the newer pay scale/job code that was implemented at the local supplement level for Schenectady. All those years of T rates fighting to get supplement open to raise t rates pay. The union opened it right up for the company to destroy the years... — read more
Been reading on GE page that we are going to see a huge layoffs round at Power sometime in July. I'm not sure if there's any truth to that or if somebody is just trolling. I have my doubts, because if there are layoffs planned for July, would we know... — read more

The typical employee now at GE is a 20 something college grad with limited real life experience who works a 20 hr work week. They are more concerned about their next job to care about the one they are supposed to be doing. While I could never get... — read more
Glad I found my way out of the GE cult. Management’s thinking, 15 years ago, was that only the cream of the crop are hired by GE, so by the fact that we’re here, we’re the best of the best therefore any decision we make is correct.
Voluntary Job elimination program released this week followed by potential salary reductions and layoffs to be expected by next Friday. US based Power employees. Thoughts?
Latest in the rumor mill. Is there any truth to this? I see no news of it.
Months old news, but does anyone have any information on what led to CFO Craig Steven being fired? Nuclear CEO Jay Wileman didn't even know it was happening until GE Power arrived onsite that day.
Anyone have any information on layoff numbers coming [again] in Wilmington? Hearing major org changes, multiple senior executive layoffs. It took years and 5 or 6 rounds of layoffs but finally senior management appears to be getting impacted.

The first news went out in Belfort, France - 1,000 jobs to be cut. Other EU sites to be announced soon. French unions got a copy of the entire europe plan. I can't wait for one of these lazy fat f---s to leak it to the press!
Anyone see this? A website has been set up to disseminate the report, www.GEfraud.com, where Markopolos calls it “a bigger fraud than Enron.” The financial investigator, who was probing GE for an unidentified hedge fund, writes that after more than... — read more
I am sorry but the scope of what has happened to GE is unthinkable. How can this company go from false sense of security to it imploding on itself? From what we all have been hearing in the news, my simple question is, how could these two not have... — read more
Get rid of them....most of the projects these LPs work on are useless. Executives sell them off to look good so they can move up, but in the long term 90% of LP projects are useless. If GE wants to attract top talent start going to top schools and... — read more

Big cuts coming at Gas Power. it will be curious to see what the separation packages look like.
In February 2018 GE Power offered me a VRIP package and I applied for it. However, my manager denied the request saying I was too valuable too lose. I was really upset because others in my department were accepted. This brilliant system rewards... — read more

When will someone have the courage to call out the hypocrisy and redundancy and upper-level management with the new organizational changes at GE Power? Isn’t Chuck Nugent’s role irrelevant now and not needed ? Why do we need two heads for one... — read more
I have heard more Power Layoffs targeting exempt and non-exempt salaried at Schenectady. The union people were not part of this rumor. Has anybody heard anything?
Put Russell in charge of every but Gas. Sell everything other than Gas, turn out the lights, pay the fine, and close Belfort.
Salt Poured on 205 Schenectady Union Slugs Today 205 Union employees released from the Schenectady defect factory today. Although I have little affection for the lazy, self entitled, uneducated union employees that make up such a vast portion of the... — read more
The engineers at GE Power know their stuff, they engineered good engines. The PDE designers are amazing modelers. What it comes down to is lack of sales, simple as that. Maybe it'll turn around, but not for another few years. In the meantime, does... — read more
