Short Hills, NJ

I have been working at D&B full-time for more than a year

ProsExtremely friendly people, awesome culture, very kind and polite people, willing to work with you, train and guide you and ensure that you succeed while the company. Food in cafe is provided at a subsidized rate which is the best thing. I really enjoy working a lot here. So much learning to do...

ConsNew budget is provided every 3 months, so you never really know what's coming up next in your job status. but apart from this there could me more, but I am not yet exposed to it.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease promote new talent and new people.

Great place to work.

Relationship Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at D&B

ProsGood work / home balance
Good compensation
Good culture
Tenure of employees...very long.
Many employees that have been here for 30+ years

ConsLong ramp up time
Change is inevitable
Challenging solutions make it difficult to learn in a short period of time.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are your greatest asset. With the tenure of the maturing generation you will have a challenging time as these employees begin to retire. As with many organizations the challenge will be to hold on the younger generations. Please do all you can to ensure that these generations find D&B a great place to work.

Great Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at D&B

ProsHad a long career their and got caught up in the layoffs last year. Always treated with respect and had opportunity to advance. Company has a strong brand a leadership model which is helpful to navigate internally and externally when challenges arise. They are very supportive in training and teaming model to help each other succeed. The appreciate initiative and entrepreneurial spirit.

ConsThe company continues to lay people off and the atmosphere is a little thick with fear and distraction presently. They need to get back to the fundamentals of recognition and appreciating small wins instead of just looking broadly and saying all results are bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet back in touch with frontline people. Senior Leadership is too caught up in the problems and causing angst, communicate the good and be in touch.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
