    Current Employee - Manager in Short Hills, NJ (US)

    Pros

    Very strong commitment to helping employees with life's problems.

    Cons

    Senior Managers are all new to the company and still do not understand our value propositions. Usually lays people off to cut costs when they don't make the revenue targets. Re-brands every few years instead of focusing on providing value to customers. Poor leadership in technology. Technology chases buzzwords rather than business solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify our relationships with customers. There are too many options and pricing points when trying to establish a contract. Also, if you want to have independent developers code against the D&B services platform you need to roll out a comprehensive test database so that they do not need to sign contracts with us to see the data.

    Pros

    Incredible assets; Good working environment; Good work life-balance; D&B is changing it's culture to become a much more interesting/exciting place to be.

    Cons

    Sales compensation plan is punitive; Very demotivating; Not sure if I can afford to work for D&B in this environment. Need a greater focus on the customer experience; Turn-around times for fixing data quality issues, contract turn-around time, finance review, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The vision is great. The efforts that are being made to change the culture are working. The devil is in the details and there are some old processes that need to be changed in order for us to be world class.
