    Pros

    Good colleagues to work with

    Cons

    Lacks vision and does not take into consideration the client requirements when deciding on product or product segments.
    They just pressurise employees to work hard without any recognition or any kind of training.
    Too much of partiality.
    Company is run by inexperienced professionals who has no clue about competition eating into their business.

    Despite over achieving results you may find yourself miserable.

    I worked at D&B

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    Management is toxic. Micro management to the nth degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your folks work towards their goals not yours. Additionally, it's hard to do your job when you're spending most of your time doing busy work completing internal reports and redundant training programs to satisfy your boss rather than working hard for your revenue generating clients.

    I have been working at D&B full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * good base salary
    * opportunity to earn extra money
    * good leasecar allowance
    * working with topsegment customers
    * freedom of doing your work where and whenever you want

    Cons

    * customer is clearly not focus #1, rather internal political games & people profiling
    * freedom of work comes with a price: you need to manager work/live balance otherwise you'll work 20hrs a day or more
    * In Europe very country focused instead of cross regional, although it might change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So, the news CEO has chosen to change the way D&B acts in the market. Good to have finally a vision. However a US way of doing business might not work out as it should for Europe.

    The change needs strong senior management execution. Clearly this is not the case in Europe, yet.

    Put the customer first, unconditionally.
    Otherwise the customer puts D&B on second place...

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

    Pros

    Excellent place to start out a career and develop your skillset. Work life balance is good, secondary benefits are also good. In sales, car allowance is excellent. Very tight knight and friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Company not investing in creating differentiation of product: still sitting on high margin business and not accelerating past competition or truly innovating. Fear of change. Local office run by a clique who back themselves up towards senior international management. Not too many places to grow to. HR is very good though. Zero marketing investment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest: in product, in marketing, in career progression. Weed out the politics.
