    I worked at D&B full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    Current Employee - Senior Sales in New York, NY (US)

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

    Pros

    D&B has many long term employees who are very smart and good to work with. The culture is positive and the company values employees work life balance. Compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    D&B is very bureaucratic. If you can't tolerate a highly process and compliance driven culture it's not the company for you. As a sales rep it can be particularly challenging because the perception is that the company is not customer focused. Additionally D&B needs to accelerate the focus on developing products customers can consume today in the area of advanced analytics. New business development is a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    D&B has a new C-level leadership team in almost every position. I think they will streamline internal processes because if they don't the company will be unable to grow. It is a "transformational" time at D&B. Much like other companies either we innovate, die (or get bought :).

    Extremely Long Hours!!! Managers in meetings all day and provide no guidance, no structured training for new hires. Everything is very manual on excel spreadsheets

    Invest in some better systems, cut down on meetings and institute dept. training.

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