I am a former GED employee based in Vancouver. I frequently travelled to SR office, and witnessed its sad decline . Every subsequent visit was a scene of dwindling headcount, declining morale and pall of gloom, especially after the ServiceMax team decamped for their new offices. Calling on my former GED colleagues to comment on the current vibe there. They still playing the sad video loop at the reception desk? That was a testament to the past "glory days" with former execs hyping the Industrial Internet and Predix vision. Hope they pulled the pin on that piece of video history.

The business is still lacking direction/strategy/product/leadership - the worst is still ahead. Customers will not invest further in anything but legacy GED offerings until there is clarity on these critical items. Cost cutting and reorgs are not leadership.

That is one of the offices in which morale is higher....
