I’m not saying GE can’t be a much better company, but I’m not quite so sure that everyone who has left is wealthier and happier now. I always take those stories with a grain of salt because I know a few people who left and would now gladly come back here because it turns out the grass isn’t much greener elsewhere. Why are people deciding to leave GE all of a sudden?

@2xyq+1eGZr9qi Its approx 2 Mexican employees make what one does in US.
What does this have to do with layoffs? If you were a competent HR employee you would find a job that pays more and doesn’t require you to troll gossip boards.
The grass always looks greener but in reality it's just different grass.
For every 1 person that leaves they can pay 10 Mexicans the same salary combined.
HR exit interviews should reveal the reasons for leaving, if indeed the company is doing this. Everyone is different, but the company should be looking for the common denominators. I personally see good to top personnel leaving for an upward career change (title, pay, benefits, etc.) that they feel is unobtainable by staying here. They are not being recognized for a “job well done” or any other plausible reasons that would warrant a promotion or salary raise. Some are just bored. Others are taking advantage of the many opportunities now that are opening up in other companies and preferable areas of the US. I am really surprised that I have not heard even one person say, “ I really messed up. I should have stayed!”. The company is also splitting up in a couple of years. What will this mean for everyone? A lot of confusion in the ranks. Are there enough chairs when the music stops? Are you going to take that chance? And of course, “Choose wisely “.
