Thread regarding Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) layoffs

Start looking for new employment

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: quickly cutting costs and raising revenue so that they can sell or go public within 3 years. If you are still at D+B I would recommend you start looking for new employment. Senior management at D+B will be cutting costs (meaning, people) right up until the time they sell.

Really good point from @YYLrpkA-Kmnw.

I guess it depends on the group. Some areas are hiring, promoting, and spending frivolously like there isn’t a target on their back.
