    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a risk on doing something special for your customer base or risk toppling a company that's been around for centuries.

    I have been working at D&B full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    D&B has many long term employees who are very smart and good to work with. The culture is positive and the company values employees work life balance. Compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    D&B is very bureaucratic. If you can't tolerate a highly process and compliance driven culture it's not the company for you. As a sales rep it can be particularly challenging because the perception is that the company is not customer focused. Additionally D&B needs to accelerate the focus on developing products customers can consume today in the area of advanced analytics. New business development is a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    D&B has a new C-level leadership team in almost every position. I think they will streamline internal processes because if they don't the company will be unable to grow. It is a "transformational" time at D&B. Much like other companies either we innovate, die (or get bought :).

    I worked at D&B full-time

    Pros

    The pros are the usual perks that can come with working for a large corporation: slightly better than average pay, good benefits, good potential rewards for sales producers...etc.

    Cons

    Office culture resembles shark-infested waters, with the leadership pitting sales reps against each other, while dangling the potential golden carrot (sales achievement rewards) that for the overwhelming majority of reps never really materializes. The company goes through continuous rounds of layoffs, in which hundreds are let go to bring in "fresh meat".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop structure of sales that nurtures spirit of collaboration to increase sales, while simultaneously increasing departmental morale. Focus on product diversification and relevancy in today's market, to once again widen the competitive gap.

    I worked at D&B full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The name of the company

    Cons

    Data is way outdated. They are not a technology company. D&B sold all their data to data.com and their Hoovers platform is useless. Their credit reports were good ten years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the guys on the front lines. Upper management does very little

    I have been working at D&B full-time

    Pros

    The company has a high tenure of employees which is the best indication that the company takes care of the employees.
    Great work life balance and good pay for the job.

    Cons

    The company has an extremely niche focus which can be a long term career liability.
    Internal mobility is limited.
    The company has a new leadership as of late last year, but limited changes have happened under the new management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote a culture of meritocracy.

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

    Pros

    We have a new and growing management. The company is small in the big picture, but with growing technology and a fresh, new strategy, D&B is definitely going places. Excellent salaries, good benefits, and reward for work well-done. The new CEO Bob Carrigan is really determined to make this one of the best places to work, and I can clearly see the changes taking effect. Everything from simple aesthetic changes to where our vision, strategy, and product lines are progressing, this company is really beginning to move with the times, modernize, grow, globalize, and become everything one would want in a company. It is definitely an exciting time to be here!

    Cons

    More work-life balance would be nice. More work-from-home opportunity would be helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a wonderful job staying connected to your employees, keeping us informed of everything you are doing, and taking advice from each and every one of us. Keep it up, and I hope to see more wonderful things to come!
