I think management is realizing how bad the data really is and will continue grasping at straws to fix it with these acquisitions.
Topics regarding layoffs at Dun & Bradstreet (D&B)
So this company clearly went through significant changes- whereas the sales teams were told it would not impact them too much. (That was hard to believe at the time anyway).. Well after laying off tons of behind the scenes people in finance, etc... — read more
Wishing the best to all current and past employees. May the new year bring you health happiness and good fortune
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
It has been almost 2 years since I was let go from the firm. My financial advisor recommended to transfer the 401K as soon as the money becomes fully vested. He has a concern that if the company goes bankrupt or gets bankrupted by the investors I... — read more
Heard some more good people laid off today... they can probably do away with the parking lot at this point.... who’s left?
Happy Thanksgiving. Hopefully everyone will be okay for the rest of the year.

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.
I left a few months ago on my own accord and have only looked back to see how my friends are faring...OMG, the world outside D&B is so much richer and rewarding with so much less stress! I would suggest that if you have doubts, explore new... — read more
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
Any increases in premiums or drops in the level of insurance coverage?
What were the main departments/jobs being made redundant ?
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
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.
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
Did they say anything at the town hall (or has anyone heard anything) about things like health benefits, vacation, etc being cut?
Or are they just a reward for doing whatever he says? Just wondering after today’s town hall performance ... ⚾️
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?
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
Has anybody heard what departments will be outsourced or the timeline? That’s a pretty big announcement to make without providing info to employees.
Expect more. Not generating enough sales. Content could be hit more.
THis is a foroum to discuss lay offs ?
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.
2 more people laid off in Malibu. Probably the 2 most vibrant employees that kept the smiles and life in Malibu. Bullsh!t reasons for their termination. One of them they completely set up for failure, and laid off by manager for personal reasons. The... — read more
To hear the lip service from Mgmnt about People are the most valuable asset, is a joke. They took over Feb 8th and here is a list that keeps on growing. Let's put a list together of every ridiculous cut these new GUYS(members only club) have... — read more
Heard there were a TON of layoffs in CV yesterday, what departments were hit/how many people?
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

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.
Is this only happening in US? how about EU?
So have they taking a break ? Ot back at it on Monday ?
1) Did you notice anything odd with your systems or access prior to being laid off ? 2) Did American Express contact you directly to cut off your credit card ? 3) Cell phones - were they immediately cut off ? 4) Company cars - did you need to return... — read more
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
