I have been working at DiscoverOrg full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The work environment is top notch. I have worked at companies where everyone is watching out for their own self-interests. DiscoverOrg could not be more different. Everyone is supportive as opposed to combative and the success of the team is more important than the success of an individual.
Management is friendly and always has an open door. Ideas are welcomed and change (outside of the data collection method) is not feared. They take a hands on approach, providing a personal involvement with employees instead of standing on high dictating orders.
In addition, management rewards hard work and promotes from within as much as possible. A refreshing change from the "you've been here longest" mentality.
One of the biggest Pros is that you can believe in the service DiscoverOrg provides. When you can rely on facts as opposed to embellishments, you are in a good spot.Cons
The only challenges are those that come with a rapidly expanding company. All good problems to have.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at DiscoverOrg.Interview Details
A long, arduous, fair and ultimately inhuman process. The process began with a one-person phone screen where my fundamental sales acumen was interpreted. Check. Next was a technical intuition test which is easy to anyone who has some decent experience with a CRM platform. Passed that. Next, I was invited in for a 3-person panel interview where I was again tested on my sales chops and then practiced some situational role playing. This was all fair and I did well. Incidentally, I withdrew my application but they called and convinced me to reconsider because I was "exactly what they were looking for". However, "we really need you to come (in person) and complete this JobFit test to see if you're compatible with our culture." This was no minor effort. A 182-question career compatibility test that includes everything from aptitude to complex math problems. No calculators or dictionaries allowed. After the first 90 minutes I began to think that this was really just a test of my patience because they had already given me every positive indication including, "the timing is great to get you on board".
I was surprised that the result of all that effort would be that their interest be rescinded because a computer program disagreed with their human judgement. I didn't mind the JobFit test in the end. Maybe I wasn't a fit. I just wish they had held their verbal praise and influence until the whole process was complete, so as to not get my hopes up. I feel like the JobFit test should be in the middle of the process instead of the end but when you subscribe to this kind of software, I guess you have to pay for each test and is it worth it for them must be the question. It was an atypical interview experience.Interview Questions
