I worked at D&B

Pros

Continuous focus on leadership. The leadership walks the talks and does a very good job coaching and developing talent. One of the few companies I have worked for that really puts a lot of effort behind building their culture.

Cons

Compensation package could be stronger, both their health care and equity plans need improvement. Need more focus on providing more equitiy to the very strong performers in the company. I have seen many very good leaders leave the business and believe that some of this attrition could be avoided if D&B had more hooks. The base salary and bonus are competitive but the equity side is where work is needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great brand, loyal customers, good legacy products and good co-workers.

    Cons

    Slow to build innovative products. Too long to integrate acquisitions. Growth expectations for sales are unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More realistic growth targets. Reward reps for multi-year growth. Integrate all products. Reach out to the field for product improvements. Be innovator not reactor.

    Interesting work, great co-workers, but fear of job loss is the primary motivator applied by management

    Pros

    Work can be very interesting and many co-workers are top notch people. A 167 year old company with huge potential and a leadership position in business content gives you an edge in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Short term focus; management by fear and decree; a decline in content quality caused by an almost solely automated content quality measurement process designed to tell management what they want to hear. The anwers you get depend on the way you ask the question; not necessarily the way clients experience the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on long-term and people not just quarterly earnings. Recent happenings in the market show what happens when you don't think ahead and when you don't value the people who make you the money.
