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

Pros

- Work from home several days a week
- Competitive salary
- Career growth and maneuvering possibilities

Cons

- financial flexibility (lay-offs) touted as core strength of the company. Lay-offs every year in every department for 10 straight years, regardless of performance of the employee. I saw multiple extremely competent people laid off who had been there over 30 years. Just so CEO could keep her bonus.

- CEO / GLT only care about meeting the bottom line so their bonus stays put. And the bottom line only meets expectations by laying people off (no revenue growth).

- Culture of lay-offs puts everyone on edge, looking out for themselves at all times. Highly political environment. Lots of secrets and very poor communication.

- Avoid this company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CEO / GLT should be fired immediately. This once proud pillar of American capitalism is finished.

    I worked at D&B full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The benefits are fair. Some of the people are nice and know the job.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch and knows nothing about the business. They purchased the company for profit only and do not care about how it is obtained...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the current practices of all the sales people and a Performance Improvement Plan in place. Reward your customer service team with better salaries or better incentives since they interact with the customer the most.

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

    Pros

    Good training and nice people to work with

    Cons

    To put it kindly, they did not tell the truth about what the sales reps are actually making and that all the leads are "warm leads". I'm sorry, but if you call on a potential customer and they have no idea who you are and have never heard of your company I would not call that a warm lead. After 2 1/2 months only 5 of the 25 sales reps were still at the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth in the interview process
