    I have been working at D&B full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
