I worked at D&B

Pros

Good communication from management. The organisation is large enough for professional advancement and receptive to new ideas from staff. Generally, I was happy with my wage packet and benefits.

Cons

Too much corporate jargon. And the top down approach to building a corporate culture based on pride for the workplace is less motivational and somewhat more stifling. This is admittedly not a huge problem, but is fairly pervasive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

D&B is a good place to work, there's no need for all the corporate jargon and enforced team building exercises. People will be happier if they can just get on with their work.

    I worked at D&B

    Pros

    D&B has a strong brand and leadership model, and provides opportunity for career growth. Management was very approachable, and the team members were great to work with. Compensation and benefits were good.

    Cons

    A tremendous amount of time and resources were spent on major initiatives that wound up being postponed or canceled. Although this happens to some extent in any organization, it was especially prevalent at D&B.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership has rolled up its sleeves on many occasions to listen to the external customer. I am not certain whether they are as attuned to internal team member feedback, however. It would be beneficial to expand that dialog beyond annual feedback surveys.

    I have been working at D&B

    Pros

    best reason to work here is to get some experience in the info services industry you can leverage elsewhere. we have some really good people here, but the best ones leave.

    Cons

    the "winning culture" is a joke. if you learn how to play the game you can survive but if you dont you're toast. we have no idea where this thing is going beyond the next quarter. i'm amazed at how resilient people are here but anyone i respect is out looking for their next gig,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    either sell the company to someone serious about growing the brand or get serious about change and growth
