    2007 Annual Report

    Existing employees should read the annual report very closely.

    Apparently the top 5 executives had their compensation plans reviewed and determined they were underpaid. They each received from 8.8% (Mr. Alesio) to 18.1% (Mr. Burke) salary increases. Not too shabby. How many people had to be flexed, excuse me, allowed to explore other opportunities to cover that? Meanwhile you less important employees should be thrilled you have the opportunity to get 3% raises if you totally go above and beyond the call of duty.

    Additionally, you need to go all the way to the end of the report, buried on page 120, to read that they are also planning to flex an additional 300-350 people in 2008. Where exactly are they cutting that from?

    $110 million to CSC and IBM to run their data centers. That certainly sounds cheaper than doing it yourself.

    Keep up the good work D&B Execs. Customer sat is tanking and so is employee morale. Here's to another 125% bonus payout in 2008!!!
