    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.

    Pros

    Flexibility and the people. Salary was above average. Tries to implement new ideas to grow.

    Cons

    Sales Leadership. Limited vision. Lip service to growth - too much infighting to be as productive as it could be. Benefit package - used to be excellent, now it is below average. As noted in the pros - they are willing to try to implement new ideas, however, execution is not well thought out and more have failed than succeeded.

    Advice to Management

    Regroup.. A lot of talented individuals left the business. Some on their own, some not. Get back to what made the company a growth company and realize that what may work at another company doesn't necessarily work at D&B. Once they realize the differences they'll be better off.

    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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with, I learned a lot in the 4 1/2 years I was there.

    Cons

    No communication between departments, teams and managers. Sometimes it made thing very hard to do the job without correct information or accurate information to give to the members.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that there would greater results with more training when the products change and making sure that we had all the data to supply to the members.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. A fair amount of flexibility.

    Cons

    New business targets unattainable. Comp plans change every year. Mid level management is out of touch. Moral is low due to continuous lay-offs.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at mid level management and ask yourself what they really bring to the table.
