Topics regarding layoffs at GE Digital
How is yours doing?
Noticed that GE Digital no longer listed as a separate business unit in the earnings report. Goodbye Digital! See ya Bill!!
Many of us had the same question when we were laid off....who else was affected? It makes me angry to know Bill Ruh can make bad decisions one right after another and still draw his 400k salary. I encourage anyone that reads this to email Trian... read more
Curious how many of you received RSU as part of your comp package? I've asked around, and it seems grunts like us rarely get them (or get ridiculously low amounts), but senior leadership has high six figures worth of RSU.

GE said today that they are sorry for the poor management decisions made over the course of three years and will immediately begin to recall all employees affected by the recent layoffs.
... were made strategic sites!
Hoping MS makes a bid and buys GED. Wish I could start a petition among remaining employees, along with a nice letter to MS on behalf of us, outlining our knowledge and enthusiasm of all things iOT and why it would be good for them to buy us.
Not sure what the numbers are but the consensus seems to be this is the end of Predix!
Predix is doomed! ’C’ executives & VPs have no business goals, no strategy, no processes.. they themselves are simply clueless, what direction are they going to provide to others!! No-one understands industry-standards so they build their own... read more
Noticed today that Bill Ruh isn't on the Proxy vote for continuing as a board member. Is this normal?
Does anyone know what kind of severance package was given to employees laid off on Jan 8?
what percentage of the dev workforce are they looking to cut at the boston office?
Thats a question - when is Jim fowler leaving. Should he be leaving by himself or kicked out. What would be better and when ?
The management always takes care of their own. Ahead of the looming mass massacre, many in the middle management have been quietly told to look for other options. Recent examples of announced exits are VP of Product Marketing, VP of Engineering and... read more
Predix and APP teams are being rationalized (merged) to form single Engineering/PM Teams. In the process of consolidation, many positions will become redundant. Expect many heads to fall in the process.
Don't seem to here anything from employees in San Ramon now days. In a way that is good news. Maybe the turmoil is done and Digital can move on.
Announcement coming week of March 5. US only. Horizontals, CT, ERP teams. US only. Similar to last November.
Sooooo, what's happening over at GE Digital these days? Why is this Executive making a move away from GE? Saw the recent GE reports cameo which had him talking all about how great the Industrial Internet is and what the future holds - What changed or... read more
That happened like three years ago and BR was talking about how much money Predix was making, but it was all IBS money shuffled around so it made zero impact on our revenue It actually hurt our revenue since we paid for a lot of IBS and revenue... read more
Steve Rullo said Norwalk is strategic for Capital, but Global Ops DT team will not increase a presence, but will likely decrease and move to the hubs
About a year ago GE Digital said it would give awards at the end of 2017 to the best ideas/suggestions for cost out. Even though i have heard several people ask when that would happen no answers. Just another way GE does business. Ignore something... read more
Just heard there will be more over the next couple of months. Anyone who isn't looking for a job on their own is foolish!
Jim's speech at DTH disclaimer: The speech today was by professional actors. Why some of the discussion was based on fact, most was wishful thinking. GE does not claim to have been first to create some of the concepts or does not guarantee any... read more
Digital would most likely be spun off to Microsoft who wants to enter the IIOT space. A partnership with GED would allow them to stay engaged with the industrial assets. Plus - Predix does not require GE devices - so makes even more sense.
Finally - someone from the outside figured out the problem. /
If you work at an office location. Our fearless leaders are doing everything in their power to destroy GE's manufacturing capability. Smart Help is going to be the beginning of the end.
Makes no sense. He was the architect of the mess we find ourselves in now.
I heard all CoreTech folks in Detroit were let go?
/ GE Is Laying Off 12,000 People From Its Power Business General Electric plans to lay off 12,000 people from its GE Power business unit as part of a broad effort to cut $3.5 billion in costs by... read more
Listen to the replay again when Khozema talks about $200m in cost out to get 2018 op plan down to around $1b. Then he mentions additional cost challenges from corporate to be determined and mentioned another $200m in cost out as a possible outcome... read more
Bill Ruh sounds drunk -- keeps saying things are "uncertain" and how hard that is for everyone. That's not the issue--the issue is that the leaders have looted the company and made poor decisions so we now need to be laid off. Bill Ruh should go... read more
How come there's no mentioning of GE layoffs on the news? I saw an headlines of 150 people laidoff at ESPN, but no mentioning of huge and massive GE layoffs.
