    I worked at D&B full-time

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    There is lots of red tape, and at times it seems like one division doesn't know what another is doing. This can be frustrating.

    I have been working at D&B full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Incredible 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.

    Cons

    Sales 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.

    I have been working at D&B full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    D&B tries to do its best with providing the necessary support and tries to listen to its employees for constant feedback. Sales culture has many opportunities for improvement, but overall compared to many other companies, it still stands above the rest when it comes to how they treat sales people within the Fortune 500 sector.

    Cons

    Time off is good with 3 weeks vacation first full year. Growth options are good along with excellent training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push down the walls of the organization to make it easier to sell. Internal administrative processes and work flow need to be greatly improved to ensure that sales people are not overwhelmed doing only post customer support and administrative type work.

    Pros

    Great stable company, good salary and pay compensation, great place to work if you have been within a Fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    No work life balance, care more about the numbers to the street than the employees. Lots of competition in this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The practice of moving accounts around where one sales person takes quota of what has been sold by another sales person is terrible in retaining talent.

    I have been working at D&B full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Extremely 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...

    Cons

    New 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please promote new talent and new people.

    Pros

    Intelligent employees, quiet work environment, always work to do. Multiple consultant companies = pushes employees to do better work. This is clear because most workers take their job seriously.

    Cons

    Personal growth, disconnect between upper management and lower management causes less than perfect quality. Multiple consultant companies = high competition, sometimes counter productive.
