    Pros

    Company is Great and the culture is good.

    Cons

    Individuals have too much power. It is a high school popularity contest. People all like you when you're hot but if one person turns everyone shuns you for no reason. Senior management don't really know what's going on.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I found a way out. This company taught me exactly how not to treat people. I was successful here, but was handicapped by leadership.

    Cons

    I worked under the worst leadership chain imaginable. No long term vision. They didn't understand sales cycles. No respect for employees. Bad-mouthed fellow employees and our customers.

    My manager shuffled territories for his team every year... every year, distributing my hard earned pipeline to the rest of the team in an effort to make him look like a strong manager. Never allowed his employees to have great success. He constantly blamed his team for his failures, and veiled his coaching (a term I use lightly) under the corporate concept of "open and honest feedback." He spoke a lot of "perception," but that was his excuse for not paying attention.

    HR allowed the sales leadership to be rogues behave like unprofessionally, and possibly illegally --- constantly turning over the sales force before leadership behaviors could be exposed. Preached the importance of work-life balance, but this was a lie too.

    Consistently found ways to not compensate the sales force for their work.

    Consistently forced to make poor decisions that sacrificed long-term success and stability for the sake of "hitting this month."

    Everyday, I wait for a call from the SEC asking me to make a statement regarding the activities I witnessed firsthand.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the art of respect and appreciation. Work on strategic vision, not tactical behaviors. Don't be the enemy of your employees.

    If there is an issue, make sure to ask the right questions to the right people. Your middle management team has proven they are willing to lie and hurt employees in an effort to hide their actions.

    Pros

    Great company culture that values employees. Management takes their role as leaders seriously and employees are fairly compensated in an enriching environment.

    Allow a freer reign to the Malibu office. Don't ruin a good thing.

    Pros

    Fantastic culture
    Good work-life balance
    Renovated offices

    Cons

    Minimal development at the entry level

    Advice to Management

    Please keep an eye on the more entry-level individuals in the company. Professional development is invaluable to people in that age bracket--career progressions don't need to be immediate, however, knowing that development and growth are sincerely on a manager's mind makes it easier to stay with a company for an extensive period of time.

    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.
