The exit of about 68k BHGE employees, 10k Transportation and power layoffs will reduce company size to around 185K in 2019. So i believe corporate, global ops and IT types staff will be reduced because they have about 100k less employees to support. I hope most of this has already been done but probably not.

CoreTech’s days are numbered Rumor has it Corporate is going back to the businesses running there own ops.
The Command Center id–ts can go back to bagging groceries or pumping gas and get out of our way so that we can actually resolve the issue.
I’ve called into the DOC on a number of occasions and I swear my 6 year old daughter is smarter than these people.
I pray these rumors are true and The DOC is finished!
The "last outside partner"....so 100pct of business is to other GE divisions?
On the subject of reducing the cost of Coretech and IT Risk, where are we at with moving those functions to a new company of some sort? Once the affected management's (Drumgoole, Resai, Acquaro and others) dreams of new stock options went up in smoke as the last outside partner went away, I imagine their enthusiasm for forming a GE-operated company containing their various functions has waned in favor of keeping their bloated and inefficient shops.
The most energy I ever saw them have was walking in on them discussing their stock option possibilities moving to an outside partner. No such energy is evident discussing improving anything benefitting GE.
