Advice to Management

Your employees are your greatest asset. With the tenure of the maturing generation you will have a challenging time as these employees begin to retire.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The company still has a great reputation. The database and coverage far exceeds what the competition has to offer. Pay and benefits are OK.

    Cons

    Bosses are called leaders but none of them are. They manage by fear. No one seems to care about customer service. Favoritism is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the short term focus. Start taking care of customers and employees. Stop changing customers reps every year. With the way the company is run the reputation won't last long.

    Good work life/balance
    Good relationships with big international customers
    Intrinsically an interesting secor.
    People with long tenure and deep experience

    Cons

    The ONLY thing that matters is pulling out as much cash as possible. Of course, this is the main goal of every company, but D&B has streched the notion of what is meant by 'managing for the short run'. If your idea does not have a payback time of 2 quarters, it will never make it. Resources are completely outdated and malfunctioning. The most essential business expenses are refused. Lots of lipservice, but in essence an empty box. Thin air re-invented.

    Advice to Management

    If you are in the business of data, it is rather silly to call a project to integrate ancient databases a Strategic Investment. Especially if the "investement" is roll out over 3 years, and represents not even 4% of total generated revenue over that period. I know cardboard companies that invest a higher percentage of sales in R&D, and guess what, they dont call themself an innovative company. Maybe the fact that if you type in Dun & Bradstreet in google, one of the first suggestion is 'Dun & Bradstreet scam' should be a small warning sign that someting must be dysfunctional in your organization. The fact that we hit a scandal in China recently, is merely the effect of giving people ultra short incentive schemes to get as much sales in, no matter what. You get what you pay for. Sad story.
