    Biz that's trapped in the past

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNot many - work from home so you don't have to deal with incompetent supervisors

    ConsClearly upper management has no understanding of modern work environments or how to innovate. Too busy fixing what's broken instead of building better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRun for the gates

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great opportunity and earnings potential, supportive management, typical stress in sales role.

    Sales (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsBest in class company and products, good mix of teamwork and personal autonomy, leadership is quality with mix of management styles, uncapped earnings if you commit to best practices and focus on activity, ability to help companies with consultative approach.

    ConsSome micromanagement, as with any sales role, metrics are biggest focus, hard to move into new positions, base salary is lower than other similar jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider creating an environment with more potential for movement and opportunity throughout departments. By evaluating individual performance, work ethic and strengths, talent would be uncovered.

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

    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

    D&B is a good company overall. There is advancement opportunities available.

    Account Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThere is a great work life balance.

    ConsLimited income potential. As a sales rep, I want the ability to write my own paycheck. While the income is good, it is not great. Because D&B is a huge company, implementing ideas or change can be difficult. Recent comp plan change was for the worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhile you are good at receiving feedback from employees, implementing it is another story. We are on the front lines, listen to us!!

    An excellent Project team experience. It was the best organized & managed PMO I have ever experienced.

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Short Hills, NJ

    ProsClearly stated goals and mission statement.

    ConsProjects need to keep focused on critical objectives and less influenced by short term politics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should emulate the connection that Sara Mathew had with the rank and file employees.
