    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

    Pros

    Collegial, good life balance, nice people to work with, reasonable compensation

    Cons

    Tough place to work if you want action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After decades of being run to push down costs, there are areas where millions of dollars are at risk, and a fix would be a tiny percentage of the revenues at risk. Management really needs to make these unglamorous but essential investments. As an employee, my greatest concern is not about compensation, or benefits, or a friendly atmosphere, but about concern that the company is investing adequately to ensure D&B will remain a going concern for more than the next few years. It's way too tough to get modest budget requests for things that will shore up businesses that serve key clients and make millions for the firm. That said, I think broadly Management is a good bunch - maybe with too much on your plate?
    Maybe it might make sense to have someone specific in senior management whose job is to look at the many unsexy but key businesses, and figure out how to shore them up from a decade of relentless resource cutting.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, definitely rewarded the employees for working hard. The company cared about a work-life balance and understood the need to work remotely.

    Cons

    When I was there the technology was outdated. They outsource much of IT and a fair amount of the knowledge. It took a while to get institutional knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better balance between insourcing and outsourcing technical functions. For the sole purpose of driving better business outcomes.

    Pros

    Great work experience, particularly product and solutions and learning all the skills needed to manage customer accounts. Great culture and coworkers for the most part.

    Cons

    Compensation, management and hostile customer base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many customer's don't understand value of DUNSRight, and they really don't appreciate poor service and ham-handed salesmanship from account managers.
