    Excellent Corporate Environment, Slow Growth

    ProsVery established company that treats people fairly. Very strong brand and good products. Extremely nice people to work with- everyone is willing to go above and beyond to help.

    D&B has the potential to be a great company if we can execute on our new CEO's vision

    Relationship Manager (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsIncredible assets; Good working environment; Good work life-balance; D&B is changing it's culture to become a much more interesting/exciting place to be.

    ConsSales compensation plan is punitive; Very demotivating; Not sure if I can afford to work for D&B in this environment. Need a greater focus on the customer experience; Turn-around times for fixing data quality issues, contract turn-around time, finance review, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe vision is great. The efforts that are being made to change the culture are working. The devil is in the details and there are some old processes that need to be changed in order for us to be world class.

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

    Empty promises and the definition of Insanity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Short Hills, NJ

    Prosrelaxed work atmosphere, Nice area, flexible hours, vast resources.

    ConsLittle transparency, low pay, communication, lack of direction, lack of innovation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven though the president may change, if the government stays 90% the same, then change is just a word.
    Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting different results.
