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.
