    Pros

    BvD is a great place to work with an informal culture with a great team spirit. BvD has market leading products with clear USPs over competitors, meaning we're rarely beaten in an objective review. There is a focus on staff development and the management wants you to be the best you can be. Globally BvD has a very collaborative culture with everyone willing to help each other out. Plenty of vacation- as a European company we get a full 4 weeks paid holiday.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to report - this is a great place to work

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Bureau Van Dijk Electronic Publishing.

    Interview Details

    Apparently their strategy is to try to break you down in the interview. Worst two interviews of my life - I wanted to walk out - but stuck through it and can now look back and laugh. My first interview the manager kept asking me who I was - not listed on my resume - but who was I to the core of my being. Apparently he didn't like my answers about who I am because he told me that he could "sell me better than I could sell myself". All in all the interview took about 45 minutes and aged me 2 years.

    I was called back that night surprisingly to come in and interview with another manager the next day. Against my better judgement, I accepted. I spent nearly 2 hours listening to the manager explain how the company culture works. Allow me to break it down for you. They find quirks or imperfections not just in your professional life, but in your personal life as well, and ask you to "fix" them to their liking. He explained that one of his top 3 sales members did not work to alter a personality trait that they pointed out and fired him. He then offered the third and final interview process to me - which is the presentation on their company values. He explained that 80% of people fail at this venture. I immediately turned down the offer for the third interview process and never contacted the staffing agency again.
