If you are referring to Welch’s tenure at GE, it ended over a decade ago.

Yep. I was there when he made his name -- "Neutron Jack" -- the people go, the buildings stay. If you want to know anything about getting people unemployed, ask Jack. He formed a team to clean out middle management. They did a good job, and when they were finished with that, he fired the team. All heart.

Would you be happier if he had “heart” but ran GE into the ground and had massive layoffs or went bankrupt?

I worked for GE in 1985. Back then their motto was “We have more money than God.” As the old saying goes “The day I was hired and the day I quit were the two happiest days of my life.”

Wasn’t Welch the ‘father’ of overseas outsourcing when he was CEO of GE?
