    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work / life balance. Ability to work from home when needed. Salary and benefits are reasonable and competitive.

    Cons

    Last 2 years seems like it has been constant reorganization and layoffs. Then there is the hiring of the new management’s past colleges. Redefinition of roles is uncertain. Lots of anxiety in the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Finalize organization structure, execute it, be honest with your employees on what the plan is.

    Pros

    You have a chance to work with good, smart co-workers. Some work/life flexibility. Reasonable pay and benefits.

    Cons

    There has been an extreme amount of reorganizing, with massive misses, and some small hits. It has created an environment where employees are constantly anxious about their job security.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan and stick with it. Try to include within that plan a road to coming up to speed with newer technologies, rather than being last to adopt anything new and useful.

    Pros

    Some really good people working here.

    Cons

    The Emerging Businesses division structure is a mess. There was no reorg after the merger and the division is still trying to function as a start up. This isn't working, but they are too busy saying "how great everything is going" instead of address the real problems. You are now part of a 170+ year old company, it's time to start following the rules in terms of processes in place and identify the gaps in Emerging businesses. Many people have left in recent months and I have no doubt it is because of the toll it has taken on them. EB is trying to do too much too fast, it feels like we never see a project from start to finish and if we're not launching new things on a weekly basis then we are lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Please restructure Emerging Businesses. Please really look at the organization post merger and where gaps lie in terms of job responsibilities. This can only be ignored so long. It is starting to affect your employees morale.

    Pros

    Culture. Earnings potential, if you remain compliant. Annual trips for top producers.

    Cons

    Intense micromanagement. Constantly changing commissions. Out of control legal compliance rules and regulations.

    Advice to Management

    Highlight the fact that customers will be auto renewed so as not to put your sales team in a bad position. Allow team members to take their sick time and vacation without retribution.

    Pros

    The majority of people I work with are professional and have many years in the credit industry.

    Cons

    Price of our solutions can really be a struggle with the current economy and the gap between our competition has been closing in for some time now.

    Advice to Management

    Work/life balance is good and I know the company is trying to retain the talent they have but lack of upward mobility can be a struggle and there are some internal processes to work through that have been lacking from upper level management.

    Pros

    Small base pay and benefits. The people that work there are nice. You are provided lots and lots of leads....! Potentially a good fit for the right person.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Dull atmosphere. Sitting in a chair all day and making 100's of phone calls becomes redundant for some folks. Something could be done to help motivate people to become more engaged.

    Advice to Management

    Too much inconsistent criticism. Give folks a way to really help business owners identify with the importance of why we are calling them. Provide a more fun and engaging atmosphere. Create incentives that drive business.
