    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.

    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    When I was there the technology was outdated.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.
