    Pros

    Partially subsidized cafeteria lunches and constant threat of layoffs mean you can manage some jaded, old, worthless scrubs.

    Cons

    Legions of backstabbing worms. Cronyism, favoritism and sycophants galore. Look out anyone who worked on DNBi North America the past 10 years... It's a sinking ship and the rats jumped off to nest in other corners of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the 75 percent of the company that has no value beyond collecting dust

    Pros

    They give you a seat, oh and there is ping-pong that the managers play on all day long.

    Cons

    Poor leadership (Especially from California) and only way to move up is to sell your soul.

    Advice to Management

    Start over

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    The pros are the usual perks that can come with working for a large corporation: slightly better than average pay, good benefits, good potential rewards for sales producers...etc.

    Cons

    Office culture resembles shark-infested waters, with the leadership pitting sales reps against each other, while dangling the potential golden carrot (sales achievement rewards) that for the overwhelming majority of reps never really materializes. The company goes through continuous rounds of layoffs, in which hundreds are let go to bring in "fresh meat".

    Advice to Management

    Develop structure of sales that nurtures spirit of collaboration to increase sales, while simultaneously increasing departmental morale. Focus on product diversification and relevancy in today's market, to once again widen the competitive gap.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    I had a decent commute. Cafeteria was well-priced. Good location, near Mall at Short Hills. Bathrooms were always clean.

    Cons

    Job wasn't as described at interview. I quickly discovered that managers will steal employees' ideas and present it to senior leaders as their own - happened to me a few times. HR thinks they're truly global strategists because salaries are on par with larger companies. Long-tenured mgrs isn't a positive thing here, b/c they have no new ideas and its like inbreeding. Glad I'm outta there!

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of long-tenured employees, especially in HR. Develop long-term growth plans for each department before spontaneously going on hiring sprees, only to fire months later.

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

    Pros

    if you need a job it is better than flipping burgers... if you have a friend there in management or if they like you you can make really decent money on the right lists of prospects

    Cons

    you start at $15/hr and then go to $10/hr....it is by design that you don't earn commission every month nor do most people hit their goals...company pays peanuts and makes goals high enough so they really don't have huge payroll costs... at least for salespeople but the managers have nice vehicles so good thing someone is making money!

    Advice to Management

    while you are telling everyone about how they can be number one and how we can win as a team.. tell them how long they can expect to last there (maybe a year) and tell them how much they can earn when the "team" hits their goal- oh yeah that's right-- nothing.

    Pros

    They offer insurance. Great place to pick up a chick.

    Cons

    hHgh school environment & call center meat market. they never want you to make the Commission they promised. They move you around from team to team just to be sure you can't make any money. They even want you to work on Saturday and Sunday and holidays!

    Advice to Management

    Fire all management and start over.
