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.

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

CV closure??

I have a few friends that work for DnB in the CV office. They think they are safe. Finance departments. I’m thinking rose colored glasses. When is the lease up on the location.

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?

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

Data Acquisition and Content.

Terrible day. More to come. Management won't even say what positions were let go or how they made the decision. Gutless. Does anyone know other positions. I know Data Acquisition and Content.

Macs are gone in July

I'm a designer and video editor for the company who regularly uses my Mac, and Apple/Adobe programs for both. Now they're forcing us to switch to Windows 10 PCs by July. I'd say this is my last straw, but I ran out of straws months ago. —  read more
