Thread regarding General Electric Co. layoffs

Hang it up Beth.

Talk about delusional levels of self importance- I give you Beth Comstock- who took way more than she ever gave to others. Her perception of self Importance is on the order of personality disorder...

You are what you speak. It is still time to add "be polite to others" in your new year resolutions list.

The cardinal sin for a GE manager is to point out when the emperor is wearing no clothes.

It's true that GE management can't criticize itself. It's a death mark on your career if you do.

Sickening all the GE and exGE people fawning all over her on LinkedIn.

If anyone wants to know how GE got into the mess it's in look no further than the responses to Beth on LinkedIn. She's a failed executive. Failed. Billions of dollars of losses. She should be embarrassed to show her face. She has no more authority to give reviews.

And still, still, people feel obligated to kiss her a-- and are afraid to make a negative comment.

Shameful. Disgusting. How dumb she is, almost unreal. Vice Chair of the GE Co... you gotta be kidding me. She should be in jail.

Flannery described her as someone who could see round corners, she couldn't see to the end of the road. Buzzword Beth I used to call her. Ecomagination GE lacked both the imagination and the ecological green and economic sense to make money. A waste of time just like fast works trying a conglomerate into a startup.

Look at the stock options this clown cashed in over the years.

Frankly, if she was on the pay roll now she would have been sent down the road in minute. Under two jet Jeff she raked in millions , just disgusting !

Destroy, move on, reinvent yourself as a winner. Sickening all the GE and exGE people fawning all over her on LinkedIn. Hundreds of positive comments every time she puts out more self promotion. No negative comments. WTF

Did we work for the same company?

We want certainty. We want to know. We want more data.

So knowing that, why did the leader you picked and mentored, Immelt, become notorious for doing everything two years too late?

I’m a big believer in having two lanes of the company: you have your core operations – call it 70-80% of the company. It’s a bit more predictable, you have visibility, and it’s where your expertise is. Then, you have another 10-20% that is feeding what’s new and next. I’d argue for even bigger percentages.

That adds up to 90% so, yes, you need even bigger percentages.

What was the biggest mistake or setback of your career and how did you deal with it? I could have called the book Fail It forward. The most painful was the last time that I was at NBC and it was all about driving digital change. Personally, I was not being as successful as I needed to be.

You were fired Comstock. Fired. You and your boss were fired for multibillion dollar losses. That was the biggest setback of your career. Not when you bickered and NBC but when you were fired for wrecking GE's leadership and contributing to billions of dollars of losses.

First, I call myself a changemaker, but I don’t love change either. So, the reality is it takes awhile to get comfortable with new things. Second, I love to get out and dance.

No one gives a sht Comstock . Families are being severely impacted by the piss poor job you did. No one wants to like you so stop talking about stupid stuff. You owe it to thousands of affected people to be serious and specific.

More than Immelt, Comstock is JW's legacy. Comstock is what JW created over every other company and what he said made GE better, it's HR department. Comstock can't give ONE quantitative example of how she made the GE better and is so pathetically sad in this interview. I do NOT feel sorry for her and have no reason to think she has any idea what she's talking about and billions of reasons to think she doesn't. Failure is an orphan.
