    I worked at D&B full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 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.

  6.

    I have been working at D&B full-time

    Pros

    Best 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.

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Small sized, but rapidly growing IT division gives a very good exposure and opportunity. New technology. Product based. A very very good domain, which gives a lot of opportunity to work with data and the presentation of it.

    Leave policy - only LOP in probation of first 6 months. But depends on the project u land on. Some projects are still legacy systems.
