Any more GE Digital layoffs expected today or sometime next week? Or can we relax now?

More layoffs to come. Your only chance to relax is if you deliver consistently and productively.
Do we know the teams getting affected? And the locations?
You meant to say you were not relaxing until now? What work have you been doing and for what purpose?
Why through 6/19? If they keep up this pace there will be nothing left!
This round is probably done. I concur with the previous reply that more will happen in the future. I got clipped this round and I have to ay, it's liberating. They softened the blow with a fair package. I am finally motivated to find something better. I was waiting for the bonus payout and now that it's done, I'm ready to move on. After watching one of the meetings yesterday where they were spelling out their plans moving forward, I'm very happy that I'm not one of the leftovers. No real direction. Fewer people that have the domain knowledge and skills to do the remaining work for the 'Q5' and 'Q6' plans that SteveM likes to say. Basically looking pretty grim. If you're a leftover you have to be a true believer and delude yourself into continuing to work at GE Digital. Any practical and sane person would be preparing some sort of exit plan. Meanwhile, I can sit back for the next few weeks and use all the training resources of GE to skill-up and tune-up for interviewing.
While there may not be more immediately, there is no reason for this to not happen again in a few months' time. Remember, this is already the 3rd round of layoffs (at least) since late 2017. This is a sinking ship with no light at the end of the tunnel. If I were you, I wouldn't wait and live in constant fear of getting laid off. Just run as far away and as fast as you can...
On going til 6/19 unfortunately
