Pros

Awesome business model, some very prestigious clientele, changing financial times and new technologies

Cons

Micro managing boss
Stops you at door and asks "Why are you leaving so early"!
Do a fantastic job, and it's a "silent acknowledgement" Mess up just once and it's almost a public rebuke, reminds you of your High School Principal pulling up on an errant kid.

Advice to Management

Run a company, not your High School.

Steve, stop selling company stocks ahead of quarterly results, sends out a bad signal, you know ?!

    Pros

    Brand is well recognized, though in danger of eroding. Mid level managers are good people leaders.

    Cons

    Constant uncertainty about job security; "financial flexibility" is an euphemism for cutbacks that have now doubled the workload for most people and are cutting into bone. The result is more stress and less work/life balance for those that remain. Strategy keeps shifting, and I believe it's headed in the wrong direction due to obsession with short term numbers (which drive stock price, and in turn senior executive compensation)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the reviving the brand; less emphasis on the short term; take time to see what is happening at the ground level to the average employee. Ensure a holistic approach is taken to re-engineering, rather than a top-down, reductionist approach. Give senior managers and Senior executives time to master a function before moving them to new areas and causing chaos that only begins to clear just before the next wave hits.

    Pros

    D&B offers realitvely good products at a reasonable cost, has strong brand recognition and has forged strong relationships with third parties. This goes a long way in sales. Employee benefits are above industry norms. Many intelligent employees.

    Cons

    The work culture is comprabale to the TV show, "Survivor," excpet there is no prize at the end. Leadership's attitudes foster an unproductive, beaurocratic work environment that stimies innovation and accepts and expects the status quo. The company has numerous long-time team members who are arrogant, lazy and self-satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to competition; they are sneaking in under your radar. Reward innovation.
