Interesting work, great people but lacking innovation and re-branding awareness.

Pros

Exceptional colleagues, interesting and dynamic work Great opportunity for career advancement, education opportunities, and strong work life balance.

Cons

Disconnect with sales leadership and the front line, late to innovate, inept technology platforms. The company has lost its edge as a "sales organization" and needs to reinvigorate the sales force. Enagement scores are extremely low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus strongly on innovation, employee engagement, internal and external communications. The predictive analytics recalibrations are being well received, however D&B's role in "big data" and "global analytics" is an internal vision that is lacking traction in the marketplace since the company hasn't traditionally played in that space. Senior leadership needs to ensure mid-level management is helping their front lines reinvent themselves and the customer base. Senior managment is extremely operational, introverted, and the culture has become pervasive.

    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.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Short Hills, NJ

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, dedicated employees, commitment to transform the business, passionate leaders at market and function level, underpenetrated in the marketplace

    Cons

    Continual reengineering puts employees always at unease during the annual cycle. Benefits are below market averages and at the moment the future leadership is unclear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow some continuity so employees can focus on the current strategy
