    Pros

    The name of the company

    Cons

    Data is way outdated. They are not a technology company. D&B sold all their data to data.com and their Hoovers platform is useless. Their credit reports were good ten years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the guys on the front lines. Upper management does very little

    Pros

    The pros are the usual perks that can come with working for a large corporation: slightly better than average pay, good benefits, good potential rewards for sales producers...etc.

    Cons

    Office culture resembles shark-infested waters, with the leadership pitting sales reps against each other, while dangling the potential golden carrot (sales achievement rewards) that for the overwhelming majority of reps never really materializes. The company goes through continuous rounds of layoffs, in which hundreds are let go to bring in "fresh meat".

    Advice to Management

    Develop structure of sales that nurtures spirit of collaboration to increase sales, while simultaneously increasing departmental morale. Focus on product diversification and relevancy in today's market, to once again widen the competitive gap.

    They give you a seat, oh and there is ping-pong that the managers play on all day long.

    Pros

    Partially subsidized cafeteria lunches and constant threat of layoffs mean you can manage some jaded, old, worthless scrubs.

    Cons

    Legions of backstabbing worms. Cronyism, favoritism and sycophants galore. Look out anyone who worked on DNBi North America the past 10 years... It's a sinking ship and the rats jumped off to nest in other corners of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the 75 percent of the company that has no value beyond collecting dust

    Pros

    Stronghold on the Risk Mgmt and Commercial Credit space, decent comprehensive major medical

    Cons

    Persnickety high-school culture,, Operational deficiencies, manual and antiquated internal process, legacy systems, disparate decentralized reporting, leadership is uninformed and inept, uses financial flexibility to justify turnover and expense cuts and the field says they can't demo the software because it runs slower than a 28K modem.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more leadership from the outside, MaxCV is just the first overbudget project if you want to be ready for IoT, we have to build automated SB SaaS models, Ops is broken, Pricing is a laughable mess and stop the insanity, a decade of failure in new commercial customer acquistion alone has led to turnover of 120+ pp, and might as well migrate DNBi and SRM to force.com, they are eating your lunch with DDC neway.
