    Pros

    Great culture, good resources to accomplish your work. Work life balance is achieved through generous vacation policy.

    Cons

    Change is a constant with reorganizations at least once per year.

    Pros

    Well established brand with good quality products and smart people.

    Cons

    Saturated market with little room for new business growth. CEO has Unrealistic new business sales goals. Combine that with the constant changes to the compensation plan and you find yourself struggling to meet your goals. Combine all that with working 10+ hours per day just to try to keep up with all the demands placed on you.

    Advice to Management

    You can only whip salespeople for so long in an effort to drive towards your unrealistic goals. At some point it becomes counter productive and productivity will go down and you'll start to lose good sales people. This trend has already started and will continue under your management.

    Pros

    1. Good work-life balance 2. Some benefits are very generous 3. Looks great on a resume if future employers know who DnB is 4. Happy hour is fun but not a reason to pick an employer

    Cons

    1. Company is old and moves very slowly. Trying to promote new programs or technology is stonewalled by "we can't afford it." The company can afford to do a lot but just doesn't and there's never an explanation for constant shortcomings as an organization. 2. Some benefits are wonderful and others are the worst. If you can reasonably afford a health plan deductible of $2,500 then I have some real estate to sell you. HR is completely indifferent to requests for changes in benefits offered. 3. Executive management likes to think the company has changed but nothing is any different after cleaning house. Change is always promised and never realized unless you are part of special teams that receive any budget for anything. 4. Intern program is a waste of time as many interns complain about having nothing to do. Why would a company do this? 5. Professional development is an afterthought unless you are next in line to a seat at the executive table. Everyone is already in line to receive a promotion. Don't expect to move unless you are friends with management.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your ride on the gravy train. Non-stop government contracts bring home the bacon.

    Pros

    Hours are flexible as long as you work 8 hour days. Employees have the ability to work from home. Environment is very open and collaborative

    Cons

    A lot of company politics, as with any company. For the most part, it is a great place to work

    Pros

    I never thought the day would come where I would say "I love my job" I'll be honest I have worked really hard in every business I've worked for. Dun & Bradstreet is a great company to work for, you have games(ping pong, Pacman, Xbox and the best thing is the incentives!! Incentives are the best!!!! If your not selling your not working!! I mean what other job pays you on top of your hourly? (for just doing your job) Dun & Bradstreet does.. I recommend you try it out.

    Cons

    It can be stressful on making 70 + calls but, what other job doesn't required you to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    More athletic games!!!

    Pros

    Work-life balance, decent pay. Interview process was well-structured and reasonable in terms of timelines. Met some fantastically competent, talented, inspiring people while working for the company.

    Cons

    Never-ending, never-stopping re-orgs. Constant revolving door for management on all levels. Some so-called "Team Leaders" never (and I literally mean NEVER) interact or communicate with their team members. If you're remote (not based out of HQ), you're as good as dead.

    Advice to Management

    You're already on top of the world and have everything figured out - you don't need any advice from a mere mortal.
