    Fantastically friendly company with every intention of building you skills to move up the ladder.

    QA Tester (Former Employee) High Wycombe, England (UK)

    ProsTrained to do everything needed or wanted to know. Team building days out. Nobody is better than anyone else no matter what your job is. All jobs advertised internally before going to agencies. Pension and private healthcare

    ConsImproving skills to hit monthly targets and gain promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou couldn't have taken better care of me. My redundancy was upsetting but that's a part of life.

    Excellent Corporate Environment, Slow Growth

    D&B has the potential to be a great company if we can execute on our new CEO's vision

    Relationship Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsIncredible assets; Good working environment; Good work life-balance; D&B is changing it's culture to become a much more interesting/exciting place to be.

    ConsSales compensation plan is punitive; Very demotivating; Not sure if I can afford to work for D&B in this environment. Need a greater focus on the customer experience; Turn-around times for fixing data quality issues, contract turn-around time, finance review, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe vision is great. The efforts that are being made to change the culture are working. The devil is in the details and there are some old processes that need to be changed in order for us to be world class.
