Good learning experience, bad top management

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

Pros

Worked in Hoover's Online division with some talented people. Definitely a learning experience, as we were able to identify and pursue challenges. Still friends with people I met there.

Cons

Headquarters doesn't want Hoover's to succeed. It was better when D&B left Hoover's alone, but now they are actively working to undermine the work that takes place in Austin.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get with the times. You need to look in the mirror, realize you are a dinosaur, and do something about it. You are surviving based on your past reputation.

    I worked at D&B full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    In Center Valley, there is a great cafeteria and nice buildings. The parking is also a plus. Coworkers are helpful. Some management is nice and qualified.

    Cons

    Micromanagement from Top-Down. Little advancement room. No separating work from personal life. Low Salary. There are underqualified managers. The D&B way is the only way to win. Every hour on the hour, you are measured by "Talk Time". Every hour on the hour, you are also measured by Sales Amount. D&B is about a quick sale, not customer satisfaction and retention. They are selling a product that is difficult to believe in even though they have extensive research backing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your way doesn't always work best. Do not promote unqualified individuals. Accept that there is a separation between work and home life. Start honoring lunches, holidays, and an honest 8 hour work day.

    Pros

    Very relaxed and casual work environment.

    Cons

    Management changes every couple of months if not faster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to your reporting structure for at least 1 year before making re-org changes again
