    D&B has the potential to be a great company if we can execute on our new CEO's vision

    Relationship Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsIncredible assets; Good working environment; Good work life-balance; D&B is changing it's culture to become a much more interesting/exciting place to be.

    ConsSales compensation plan is punitive; Very demotivating; Not sure if I can afford to work for D&B in this environment. Need a greater focus on the customer experience; Turn-around times for fixing data quality issues, contract turn-around time, finance review, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe vision is great. The efforts that are being made to change the culture are working. The devil is in the details and there are some old processes that need to be changed in order for us to be world class.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Competitive work environment

    QA Analyst (Former Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsIntelligent employees, quiet work environment, always work to do. Multiple consultant companies = pushes employees to do better work. This is clear because most workers take their job seriously.

    ConsPersonal growth, disconnect between upper management and lower management causes less than perfect quality. Multiple consultant companies = high competition, sometimes counter productive.

    Improving but long road ahead

    Senior Product Director (Current Employee)

    ProsWork-life balance, really nice and well-intentioned people, decent pay and benefits. The new CEO, Bob Carrigan, is great and you can already see a seismic shift in the approach to a lot of things. He's done away with much of the hierarchy that has plagued the company for years.

    ConsWe are in transition between the old world and the new. Unfortunately, we need to contend with a lot of old baggage that continues to drag things down. That all said, I'm hopeful that things will continue to improve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep fighting the good fight and don't give in to quarterly street pressures.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
