I have been working at D&B full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
D&B has many long term employees who are very smart and good to work with. The culture is positive and the company values employees work life balance. Compensation and benefits are good.Cons
D&B is very bureaucratic. If you can't tolerate a highly process and compliance driven culture it's not the company for you. As a sales rep it can be particularly challenging because the perception is that the company is not customer focused. Additionally D&B needs to accelerate the focus on developing products customers can consume today in the area of advanced analytics. New business development is a challenge.Advice to ManagementAdvice
D&B has a new C-level leadership team in almost every position. I think they will streamline internal processes because if they don't the company will be unable to grow. It is a "transformational" time at D&B. Much like other companies either we innovate, die (or get bought :).RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at D&B in September 2014.Interview Details
I submitted an application on a job site for the position which had a particular vertical. My resume clearly showed that I didn't possess that vertical experience but I have been successful in sales for 15 years. I met all the criteria required for the position and there was no mention of vertical experience as a requirement. The day after I applied for the position I received an email from recruiting for an interview. We scheduled the call and from the start it was one of the most vague and open-ended calls - more about trying to trip you up than being helpful; where you would be the luckiest person on earth to work there. And at the end the recruiter informed me that she would refer me to the hiring director who would most likely not pursue due to my lack of vertical experience. My question? Why given what my resume said, would I even be considered? Luckily I had received an offer from another company that afternoon. An hour of my life isn't all that bad but it was a waste of time.Interview Questions
