    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dun & Bradstreet is known for their name and data. It's a very established organization and offers career opportunities in Credit, Supply and Marketing.

    Cons

    After my 20+ year experience there it was apparent that despite acquisitions and effort Dun & Bradstreet is slow in rolling out new and innovative technology. While the data is strong the customers are looking for a portal that is on the cutting edge and Dun & Bradstreet can't seem to play aggressively in the technology space. Their Sales Team has been trying to convert from Farmers to Hunters for years with not a lot of success and that has taken a toll on the company in achieving only single digit growth and minimal new business. The culture and environment is stressful and employees with tenure and experience are disposable. The thought of bringing in younger and less expensive talent seems to be their focus now. It is difficult to succeed in Sales if the company can't compete with the competition in the Credit, Supply and Compliance space. Cost is critical to companies and if technology is not cutting edge, data becomes a secondary value. The CEO has stepped down along with a lot of good people and the environment is not a fun and exciting one to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Don't repeat the same mistakes that Leaders in the past have made. Make sure that you have the ability to push out technology and be on the cutting edge with portals the customers have come to expect and most importantly bring back the excitement and pride to the culture. Employees make a huge difference in why customers want to work with a company or not.

    Pros

    Established company with the most recognizable brands in the industry. D&B is hiring talent at the top levels of the company to effect change and increase global performance.

    Cons

    Being such an old company, change comes slowly. With chance there is a needed focus on training execution and expertise needed for quick wins and long term success.

    Advice to Management

    All levels need to be on the same compensation plan, driving for the same goals of protecting and growing our current relationships and agreements, while hunting for new logos and securing new business. Support for Solutions Advisers has to increase with increased headcount.

    Pros

    The clients are the best. True partnerships were formed internally and externally, fostering success. Having a tremendous offering that you really believe in makes any sales job stronger. Love the modern direction.

    Cons

    Leadership sending mixed messages to their teams. Really different messages depending on who is in the room. Sad - but that too shall pass.

    Advice to Management

    Transparent and honest leadership will foster an environment for success and longevity.

    Pros

    Nice office space and that's about it. Decent benefits but not remarkable. Relatively flexible schedule with opportunities to work from home but it depends on the manager.

    Cons

    Company doesn't have developers culture. IT is heavily outsourced and no company's engineers have full knowledge of the systems. Outsourcing keeps tabs closed to keep their jobs, no documentation. Business is a dead weight of this company with no vision and ability to think different.

    Advice to Management

    You need to invest into technology by hiring more people, investing and supporting them. You will not get far with outsourcing.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, benefits and work environment. Managers are knowledgeable with a corporate culture that develops growth and advancement.

    Cons- traveling twice a year for corporate and/ or district meetings. Many positions travel monthly which was difficult for my family.

    Pros

    The environment and the people you work with will keep you here long after the normal working hours of the day. Schedule, workload, and requirements all completely do-able.

    Cons

    Quality of leads in beginning of tenure will require much more work, but this is understandable. Must be able to walk before you can run.
