    Pros

    People, culture, flexibility. I love working at D&B. The transformation since Bob Carrigan joined has been steady and positive. There leadership team is inspiring. There is a great focus on people.

    Cons

    Not a ton of budgetary flexibility. Things are tight and there is not a lot of fluff...for most. It is not so bad that the necessities aren't maintained, but there are times when choices need to be made.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the few who aren't additive and bring in more fresh ideas. Sales needs to be hungrier.

    Pros

    Very lively and jolly environment, good people, lots of activities and good pay. Office location is very good, beach view.
    I would definitely recommend working here.

    Cons

    Appraisal not that good. Health insurance is really expensive.
    I don't feel any other cons are there. Work hard to understand everything but when you do, you're the boss

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you go way over goal you will earn big commissions. I have had several large commission checks.

    Cons

    Before I took the job, a friend of a friend warned me of the management in Tucson. OMG, I should have listened. The management team consists of, for the most part, uneducated rednecks with no leadership skills and definitely no HR training. Racist and sexist occur all the time. They like to challenge men's manhood by asking a rep if they "have a pair". I have heard a Manager compare a sales call to a sexual act. They are so ignorant they even brag about being ignorant. One Manager's favorite line "I have had a million HR complaints but I am like Teflon nothing sticks".

    Advice to Management

    Some HR training and general leadership training might be an idea.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    After a few years working at smaller startups here in town, I decided to move back to a larger, more established firm. This was not what I expected to be doing, but I had such a positive experience with the recruiter and then the team that I was excited to come on board.

    -The People here are great
    -Modern Office w/Breakout rooms, Standing Desks, Good Tech and a great cafeteria on site (in Austin) with food you'll actually like
    -Great Benefits (health insurance is just ok, but they make up for it in other areas like $500 yearly in HSA just for getting a metabolic test, $400 yearly to spend on any wellness item like a bike or fitbit, and a great time off package)
    -Not afraid to incorporate modern software into new ventures and operational activities

    Cons

    Even though D&B is doing everything it can to keep an old, large company feeling smaller and modern, it IS a large established company. So if you are coming from startup world like me, you'll have to adjust to that; in particular, learning the organizational structure and how it matters to you, and sometimes getting lost in finding who can help you with what.

    Advice to Management

    Keep modernizing & keep supporting what is next. Invest into emerging product lines. Continue & whenever possible increase your communication to teams
