Thread regarding GE Digital layoffs

Digital in BHGE - what’s going on?

BHGE Digital is going through a major shake up, lay-offs, refocus, Matthias losing most of his empire, people being transfered back to the business, ...

Any idea what’s going on there?

Hate to admit it but DT is/was way to overstaffed at the SPB level up. Instead of taking care of this issue management is just shifting employees to the verticals to deal with. The buck does not stop anywhere. You could cut 10-15% today and nobody would notice any effect. Some of the good employees leave while the uninspired stay. I think nobody should complain as long as they get a paycheck

The way that group was hurriedly set up without a clear direction, this was always on the cards. On top of that, extremely dirty internal politics, blame games and attempts at empire building by individuals made sure it remained a dysfunctional and unproductive organisation. A textbook example of how not to build one.

It looks like BHGE's DIgital HR staff have also been let go or reassigned to OFS...

Many people got notices on Tuesday/Wednesday, globally. Those left are hoping for the C3 deal to materialize and are aligned to the new IoT group. More cuts coming in March. Managers will be in that round.

BHGE Digital under Mathias will no longer sell GED products. Bentley will assume that channel role for GED. Not sure what Mathias and his team are going to do other than full time job search.

@X3bToUy-znpw Meridium, SmartSignal, Predix APM all owned by GE Digital (NewCo). BHGE Will own commercial go-to-market and sales to O&G Industry as main Channel/Resell partner.

So if business is going to be in charge of Meridium and smart signal , does it mean they will own the product or it still will be with GED ?

Many people in SR, Bangalore and elsewhere have been given notices. More will be getting in March. The remaining will go back to businesses. The product team is dismantling. They never produced any viable product all these years. Only the AI team would stay - not sure doing what. Rumor is they are looking to sell AI to C3. LOL. Lorenzo seems to have finally woken up, though those actions are too late and too little. An expensive misadventure is shutting down, similar to GED.

What is the Analytics AI team up to? They are marketing NVidia GPU, Google cloud etc. Those technologies have absolutely zero needs in what BHGE Digital sells or develops. Looks like the team is looking for a job in those companies as Matthais' empire implodes.

@X3bToUy-keuv Per the latest MSA agreement that (Formerly called) GE Digital had with BHGE, the APM products are owned by Digital but BHGE owns all commercial activity and has exclusivity in the Oil&Gas Industry. So since GE Digital can't sell directly to BHGE/O&G customers we will not be taking your commercial headcount costs either.

@X3bToUy-kmuq - isn't APM (Meridium, SS) owned by GE Digital? So, why can't the APM sales, sol arch people and services move to GED? Agree with you in the mess that ex-Oracle (Binu gang), ABB, Sap people have created. They enriched themselves while delivering nothing.

by

Post ID: @X3bToUy-keuv

APM will go to Digital Solutions or whatever they call the Bently Nevada team who knows what IoT/OT apps really are. This is just a repeat of core digital where we hired a bunch of Oracle and SAP clowns who were the bottom 10% of their former companies and they delivered nothing of value except to flush cash down the toilet.

The latest is the BHGE Digital will keep only Analytics. Major layoffs will start in Feb. Look for a new job, if not already. Who will buy Analytics AI? Is that even a product? Lol

I always thought Matthias was over his head. The BHGE cyber security digital piece is a mess, complicated by GE Power decision to develop their own cyber security solutions, confusing the hell out of customers.

@X3bToUy-6rcm CFO (Jason) was from CAS and moved back to corporate. Some people left or were let go. But the leaders that have created this situation in BGGE Digital are still there. Including Matthias and his ABB friends, Binu & his Oracle gang and his many minions from one country of the world, the chief marketing/strategy officer (Dan). There is absolutely no accountability from these people. Most employees are looking elsewhere. This group should suffer the same fate as GED.

Post ID: @X3bToUy-6ybt

General Counsel resigned a few days ago. CFO left in summer. NAM, MENA and Global sales leader left during 2018 or late 2017. Asia, Europe and Channels guys are still there. Marketing leader left +1 year ago. She was not replaced. Product (Binu) and Service Delivery (Mel) are both there since the beginning.

right- they should exit digital altogether enough

Post ID: @X3bToUy-3dlg

Fully agree with -1hus. The only money-making business is reselling APM, and that should move to GE Digital. They own Meridium etc and should also own oil gas customers. The remaining BHGE Digital should move to businesses like OFS and they should decide what to do with those applications. Actually, BHGE should exit Digital business altogether. The 100's of millions wasted need to be written off.

What’s the reason to keep Matthease’s team at all, huge op loses, changing direction every 6 months, no commercia proces, no product, just a reseller. Move it to GED as Power digital. I don’t get it man.

Post ID: @X3bToUy-1hus

The incompetence of Matthias and his minions in the product team is well known. That is what has led to the sorry state of affairs in Digital. Accountability and cost controls went out the door. No product strategy whatsoever. "Mega deals" not happening. Orakle guys mismanaging the products. Bloated leadership. Huge operating loss. Why has Lorenzo not run out of patience yet?

mathias already lost control on m&c and will have only digital and probably very small part of it.

I hope Lorenzo will want to see more than just "MOU's" this year. The business is completely loss making.
