    Solid, stable company with history

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at D&B

    Pros

    Good company that provides competitive salary and benefits, also generous bonuses. Company also provides lots of out of office interaction with colleagues (i.e. bowling, picnics, special events).

    Cons

    D&B offers a very complex product line, thus as a new employee it will take some time to get up to speed and comfortable in your role. Way too much micromanaging and not enough telecommuting options available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more comprehensive training of product line which allows new employees get up to speed much quicker and work independently. Also provide more telecommuting option as standard D&B company policy.

    I worked at D&B full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, interesting work, motivating atmosphere, good benefits. New CEO is energizing and exciting. Has been a great company for years and seems to be improving. I learned a lot here and found it a very positive experience overall.

    Cons

    Like any corporate place, has its Dilbert moments but overall it's a good place to work and treats employees well. It is undergoing change and that can always create a "wait and see" vibe but all signs seem good.

    I worked at D&B as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly employees, very much so 9-5 with some exceptions, interesting work. Pretty good comps.

    Cons

    No young staff = no innovation in thought or processes. They are trying to improve the brand which will take time, but their products and offerings need to be refreshed, not just the logo alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the future - need better talent, need to be on the cutting edge of data analytics.

    Pros

    Great leadership team and continuing to improve. World class innovation and industry leading information and insight. The best in the business.

    No local office in many locations. While there are lots of benefits to being a home worker, thee are drawbacks as well. Travel can get tiresome after months of the routine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating. Do not become complacent or accept the status quo.

    To managers who take over a new group due to realignment, listen to the advice the group is telling you and also learn more about how that group works.
