    I worked at D&B (more than a year)

    Pros

    Consistently working towards building a better company for its customers, employees and really cares about the world

    Cons

    Direction changes so quickly that technology could not keep up - the industry wants 100% viability - which data is impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage all internal resources, youd be surprised by the talent - Women are important too

    I worked at D&B full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a great place to get business experience. Advancement opportunities are there for those willing to achieve the benchmarks that are required.

    Cons

    Despite it being a stimulating place to learn about business the office I worked in was contaminated by nepotism. Salary was low. It paid the bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise your salary ranges and compensate adequately. Be more open to ideas from front-line managers who supervise those who labor daily to collect your precious data.

    I have been working at D&B

    Pros

    It put food on the table and it paid off some of the student loans, but that was about it. Oh, and free parking.

    Cons

    Ridiculous achievement quotas imposed on junior staff, which led to all kinds of fudging in order to meet benchmarks. Silly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like colleagues, not like convicts, and they may surprise you with how enthusiastic they become about their jobs.

    I have been working at D&B full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people at D&B are great, from the CEO down to the brand new intern. I have never had an issue finding someone help me figure out how to do something procedural, and the powers that be are particularly receptive to new ideas. I don't do the work that the company is known for, but instead background operations in which I have a particular expertise and anybody to whom I must offer relevant advice or guidance openly accepts that I am here for this reason, only raising objections when my input conflicts with their own personal expertise.

    Cons

    Relatively disorganized in many ways, though the new executive team is obviously working toward changing this. Simple tasks, like getting an IP drop installed, can take weeks or even months longer than necessary. A lot of my job pertains to initiating technological services which is something D&B outsources, thus slowing the process significantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the good work, but also streamline the simple processes.There's no reason for so many paper trails, service tickets, etc.

    Pros

    I was working with the global product team, there are multiple tasks that I had to handle at the same time. Those project required me to gather data and information from different departments, and it was a valuable experience for on building networks. Also, I attended lots of information sessions, from how to speak like a business professional to how to communicate with coworkers efficiently. Overall, an amazing intern experience!

    Cons

    - Working with great people who actually cares about you. From bottom to top.

    salaries are under country standards

    They need to show their appreciation for people's work to have a better turnover rates.
