    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After decades of being run to push down costs, there are areas where millions of dollars are at risk, and a fix would be a tiny percentage of the revenues at risk. Management really needs to make these unglamorous but essential investments. As an employee, my greatest concern is not about compensation, or benefits, or a friendly atmosphere, but about concern that the company is investing adequately to ensure D&B will remain a going concern for more than the next few years. It's way too tough to get modest budget requests for things that will shore up businesses that serve key clients and make millions for the firm. That said, I think broadly Management is a good bunch - maybe with too much on your plate?
    Maybe it might make sense to have someone specific in senior management whose job is to look at the many unsexy but key businesses, and figure out how to shore them up from a decade of relentless resource cutting.

    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 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!

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

    Pros

    * good base salary
    * opportunity to earn extra money
    * good leasecar allowance
    * working with topsegment customers
    * freedom of doing your work where and whenever you want

    Cons

    * customer is clearly not focus #1, rather internal political games & people profiling
    * freedom of work comes with a price: you need to manager work/live balance otherwise you'll work 20hrs a day or more
    * In Europe very country focused instead of cross regional, although it might change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So, the news CEO has chosen to change the way D&B acts in the market. Good to have finally a vision. However a US way of doing business might not work out as it should for Europe.

    The change needs strong senior management execution. Clearly this is not the case in Europe, yet.

    Put the customer first, unconditionally.
    Otherwise the customer puts D&B on second place...

    I worked at D&B full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent place to start out a career and develop your skillset. Work life balance is good, secondary benefits are also good. In sales, car allowance is excellent. Very tight knight and friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Company not investing in creating differentiation of product: still sitting on high margin business and not accelerating past competition or truly innovating. Fear of change. Local office run by a clique who back themselves up towards senior international management. Not too many places to grow to. HR is very good though. Zero marketing investment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest: in product, in marketing, in career progression. Weed out the politics.

    Solid, stable company with history

    I have been working at D&B

    Pros

    Good company that provides competitive salary and benefits, also generous bonuses. Company also provides lots of out of office interaction with colleagues (i.e. bowling, picnics, special events).

    Cons

    D&B offers a very complex product line, thus as a new employee it will take some time to get up to speed and comfortable in your role. Way too much micromanaging and not enough telecommuting options available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more comprehensive training of product line which allows new employees get up to speed much quicker and work independently. Also provide more telecommuting option as standard D&B company policy.
