I worked at Dun & Bradstreet 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 Dun & Bradstreet full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable Pay. Guaranteed to get paid on time. Other than the "ok" pay, there was nothing good to say about this place. I dreaded waking up in the morning and heading to this dungeon.

    Cons

    Nothing but gossip, meetings all day long with no outcome. People, from management down feed on gossip and don't do anything about the childish work environment. Surrounded by bullies who management are too afraid to reprimand. Management looked down on their staff as if they were peasants. They claim to be an equal opportunity employer but you can count the minority on one hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take ownership on whats going on in your department. People are leaving the company left and right and it's because you aren't taking action. Act as a team and don't hand down your dirty work.

    Micromanagement at Best

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (less than a 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.
