    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Helpful management team. Not working weekends. Fun work culture. Limitless ability to make commission. Great learning curve and base salary for a bad month

    Cons

    Lunch breaks are too short. Getting up at five every day to go to work is not fun either. Otherwise, great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create a training program that is not 100% by the book. Every situation is different, and pretending like a sale is in a controlled environment does not help much when training employees to think on their feet when talking to customers.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation and decent benefits. New performance management system in place is a good thing. Current leadership much better than what was there even a few years ago. Doing more of the right things.

    Cons

    Still a bit too many of the old guard in place. Product leadership at the top lacks long term vision.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the positive change. This is a good company and has come back from the brink but has a way to go.
