Personal finance and investing megathread extravaganza

I know lewdog (and maybe others) have mentioned the desire to have a place to chat about personal finance stuff. We'll see if there's enough interest to keep this going in the long-term, but at least for now, here's a place to chat about whatever personal finance topics come up.

Thanks, I just saw that. This is not a good sign. It may mean they cut corners in a lot of other places.

And I don't think all their bad decision have been fully aired yet either. I also think we start seeing another round of selloffs of GE stock in activity managed mutual funds. I personally don't think that's hit yet. It's why I think the stock price is going to go lower.

After it bottoms, hopefully a few key changes and more structured growth in key areas can bolster GE back into the respectability of a well run company.

scho,

GE has been a weird company for a long time. In my time with them, they routinely whacked the bottom 10%/15% of performers in whatever subsidiary to save $. Be it sales, or R/D, they just cut. Stressful AF.

Then when you were spared, you trained the guys who would (one day) replace you. I was fortunate that the division I was in was based in Utah. They pretty much left us alone.

However, my former boss took a position within the company at the home HQ. Shortly after transitioning, his boss (VP director type) got whacked. He knew the writing was on the wall that the entire division would be cratered.

But GE works so slowly that my friend stopped going into the office all together for 22 months. He would do some work from home and occasionally go in just to take pens, pencils, paper.

Sprint may be the only company that was actually run worse than GE.

The issue I saw, from the inside, was that GE never developed their own stuff. They were masters at buying up small start ups with great ideas and then adding a GE touch to it. And sometime that ruined the actual product, or unnecessarily complicated a simple product.
