I worked at D&B

Pros

Strong culture with quarterly reviews processed accross the board. Feedback and a pay for performance culture. In Short Hills, HQ, only the Global Leadership team (17 +) have offices. Everyone else treated equally with the same cubes.

Cons

Slash and burn focus on cost and savings. Attempts and talk to change tried over the years but it seems to never change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep quarterly reviews and continue to drive customer focus before the competition takes over. More communication from the top s

    Pros

    Great benefits; open door policy for feedback between manager and employee- happens quarterly; great product to sell; very professional and uncapped commissions

    Cons

    i can't think of too many; the only one that stands out is that they consistently make you take tests to apply your learning; this is a good thing but gets a little old

    Good company for people who can focus on short term goals and not get frustrated by the lack of long term thinking.

    I have been working at D&B

    Pros

    The company rewards those who are successful at meeting their targets. People who are able to concentrate on hitting the goals that have been set for them and are successful at reaching their targets can move up quickly in the organization.

    Cons

    A flip side of the company doing whatever it takes to hit stated goals is that many times the need to hit short term targets overrides any other concerns. Although the company is very good at hitting short term goals, whatever it takes, it does so at the expense of longer term performance. There are many times when something that is very clearly good for D&B in the long run is avoided because the gains will not be realized within the next quarter or six months.

    D&B is also risk-averse to a fault, which can be frustrating for people who see great opportunities for the company that are missed because the returns are not 100% guaranteed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is extremely good at hitting short term goals but (in my opinion) is making huge long-term sacrifices for the sake of very small short-term gains.

    My advice would be to act with more of a long-term focus and not sacrifice so much strategically in order to meet short term targets.
