    Excellent company, great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFriendly colleagues, interesting work, motivating atmosphere, good benefits. New CEO is energizing and exciting. Has been a great company for years and seems to be improving. I learned a lot here and found it a very positive experience overall.

    ConsLike any corporate place, has its Dilbert moments but overall it's a good place to work and treats employees well. It is undergoing change and that can always create a "wait and see" vibe but all signs seem good.

    Good Learning Experience, Stale Future Strategy

    Intern (Former Employee) Short Hills, NJ

    ProsFriendly employees, very much so 9-5 with some exceptions, interesting work. Pretty good comps.

    ConsNo young staff = no innovation in thought or processes. They are trying to improve the brand which will take time, but their products and offerings need to be refreshed, not just the logo alone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in the future - need better talent, need to be on the cutting edge of data analytics.

    Overall a good company with some challenges

    Sales and Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsD&B tries to do its best with providing the necessary support and tries to listen to its employees for constant feedback. Sales culture has many opportunities for improvement, but overall compared to many other companies, it still stands above the rest when it comes to how they treat sales people within the Fortune 500 sector.

    ConsTime off is good with 3 weeks vacation first full year. Growth options are good along with excellent training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPush down the walls of the organization to make it easier to sell. Internal administrative processes and work flow need to be greatly improved to ensure that sales people are not overwhelmed doing only post customer support and administrative type work.

    Sales Executive Review

    S&MS Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat stable company, good salary and pay compensation, great place to work if you have been within a Fortune 500 company.

    ConsNo work life balance, care more about the numbers to the street than the employees. Lots of competition in this industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe practice of moving accounts around where one sales person takes quota of what has been sold by another sales person is terrible in retaining talent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
