Hey look, another acquisition

I think management is realizing how bad the data really is and will continue grasping at straws to fix it with these acquisitions.

Sacrificing Quality for Quantity

This is the wrong approach

Why does this management believe that laying off its best and most knowledgable employees will solve many problems created by years of their own lousy decisions? Has this ever actually worked? Shouldn't the simple fact that there have been no... —  read more

Tuscon closing

Just got word from a friend in the Tuscon office. They're shutting down this location at the end of the year and 200 people will be out of a job. Yikes.

….but now we can talk "bonuses"

Sales, CST, CFAs, HR, talent acquisition. CST going to Manila, vendors such as alcora. "No longer needs a West coast footprint, focusing on East coast business" but now we can talk "bonuses". Really feeling like growing the franchise was just a means... —  read more

Why do you stay???

I really don’t understand why people stay. Wouldn’t you rather work in a positive environment. One without fear based leadership. Job market is hot. D+b does not pay well and benefits are average at best. Stop griping and do something for... —  read more

Beware

I had a long career at D&B for over 30 years. Outlasted many company presidents/CEOs. Sara Matthews started the decline. She started the outsourcing to India. Go figure. Her MaxCV project costs millions and was sc-aped. Now company is private. SD is... —  read more

Wow, another post deleted

The guy posted a nice thing about a former CEO! Even Glassdoor doesn’t have a problem with posts with regards to those in prominent positions. And it was a former CEO....and it was nice!! What is wrong with the moderators here?

Employee Reviews

Whether it’s security updates, cost-cutting, laying off loyal and hard-working employees, slashing benefits, disallowing the use of Macs, or any of the other nonsense happening here, it is incredibly hard to get your work done on a daily basis now. I... —  read more

Outsourcing

Has anybody heard what departments will be outsourced or the timeline? That’s a pretty big announcement to make without providing info to employees.

Linkage Specialists

Just found out CV got rid of 2 key linkage specialists! They were the KEY go-to people for my questions and actually got the concerns updated. Otherwise sent to outsourcer to get it messed up. Sad news for me.

Worst Tech Town Hall

The whole thing was complete garbage. "Use your fear and anxiety so you aren't as likely to get cut" - Clown What a joke. The more they say "it isn't a strip and flip", the more likely it is. The only people who asked any questions at the... —  read more

More Benefits Being Cut

So they cut maternity leave from 4 months back to 6 or 8 weeks depending on delivery. I wonder what will be next? And the good old boys club keeps getting bigger. Are we in 1960 cause it sure feels that way.

This is far from over

I think we are at a point where layoffs can be considered a fact of life at Dun & Bradstreet. We'll be seeing more and more of them, most likely on monthly bases - as somebody mentioned in another tread. There isn't much we can do about this. If the... —  read more
