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
Topics regarding layoffs at Dun & Bradstreet (D&B)
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
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.
I was laid off in March and was lucky enough to get a reasonable severance. During the first town hall, I vividly recall Steve Daffron saying that "people are so important that they were listed twice" PE companies are concerned with two things:... — read more
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
Looks like there is money to spend! More boondoggles for the S&MS team? However I do feel bad for all these incoming new employees who have know idea what’s in store for them. — read more
Was laid off in April, got 6 month severance package. Couldn't be happier, now with my new company, and am so happy!
Any truth in this rumor
It has been one week since the townhall, and I feel like it is coming sooner than later.
I would expect the majority of Content, Technology, Service, and Delivery functions to be outsourced.
Likely. Such a terrible environment.
I was off today. Everyone is quiet. My co workers are not saying a word. Was it that good or that bad.
Any chance somebody can let us know what happened at Dun & Bradstreet regarding benefits? My dad's been in a lousy mood this entire week, but he's not saying why. Something tells me this might have something to do with it. I'd be very grateful for... — read more
