    Current Employee - Relationship Manager in Center Valley, PA (US)

    I have been working at D&B full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people. Good work life balance. New CEO who wants to take the company in the right direction

    Cons

    No new innovation and years of over charging customers is now coming back to bite the company. Data is more easily attainable no. D&B is not the only player on the block but charges like they are. Pricing of the products is a huge issue.
    They are like a big ship that sees the iceberg ahead but does not know how to turn. They are trying to turn now but are already feeling glancing blows. Quota is hard/next to impossible to obtain since customer constantly drop for much lower prices. No real innovation to replace.. Sales reps just move from dept to dept to avoid getting laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck.... Lower pricing to start competing and loss revenue or continue on the same downward trend

    To managers who take over a new group due to realignment, listen to the advice the group is telling you and also learn more about how that group works.

    Pros

    Brand of the company.
    Quoted company.
    History of the company.

    Cons

    People / life value absolutely not important.
    Values ​​are present only on the paper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local management seeks more its visibility than business strategies.
    The company is managed locally as a farm.
    Management invests more to convince employees that they have the chance to work for D & B than to convince customers to choose D&B solutions.
    The company is not gratefuld.
    In case of dismissal management prefers to invest in court proceedings as to compensate its employees.
