It was a good place to start

Special Events Manager (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsWork here will give you a good mix of restaurant, unique venue and events background while also experiencing working with a very large staff. If you take the time to learn as much about the operations and your market as possible, it makes the sales of events very easy and financially rewarding. D&B has a rich culture and also believes in promoting from within when possible

ConsEver since the first sale to an investment company, the internal structure (and ownership) has been constatly changing making it difficult to feel stable in your job. There is no commission structure for the SEM position; it's all or none based on hitting your monthly budget. This is acceptable in the sales world but really hurts in months like December when you work your tail-end off and might not get a dime. If you aren't able to move it's very difficult to advance your career.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
