    Pros

    D&B has very good data and it is a prominent player. Great brand name and value proposition.

    Cons

    Private equity buyers are focused on cost cutting and not on growth. They will remove a lot of institutional knowledge and be left with 100 years old databases. They have no vision for growth or improvement

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand the market landscape and how you can differentiate. Get detailed knowledge instead of forming strategies based on superficial knowledge.

    Pros

    D&B has a great culture, especially in their smaller remotes offices; like Austin, TX & Waltham, MA. The company direction since announcing that they are a private company is what's best for the future of D&B.

    Cons

    With changes in the organization and new leadership comes changes.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to keep the customer and employees in the forefront of your business decisions, all the best in 2019

    Inefficient systems and processes which cause lots of wasted time and research

    Need to revamp many internal systems and processes. Just went private and seems like new owners are well aware. Hopefully we will see real progress in this area. But change is not always comfortable
