    I worked at D&B

    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.

    I have been working at D&B full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Worklife balance exists in most parts of the org. CEO is very personable and approachable. Company is in good financial status. Getting more modern with policies (e.g. dress code).

    Cons

    Product innovation is talked about, but lacking in execution. Don't expect funding/resources to help achieve your objectives. Seems like there are so many groups that want to do their own thing which really translates to a lack of focus across the company (the CEO is trying to correct this). Despite a new HR Leader, HR/Recruiting is embarrassing and could use a severe overhaul. My experience as a prospect/new hire was poor. I also recommended a friend for a job...her experience during the interview process was less than desirable. Office locations are spread out - probably too much for a company of this size & many employees work remote. Beware if you like to have actual human interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good hard look at the recruiting/new hire process and find ways to improve it.

    I have been working at D&B full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company pays excellent package and that's it

    Cons

    Don't know where to start but here you go

    1. Complete organisational chaos in Dublin office. They pretend to show that they are in full control but reality is completely opposite
    2. Many people doing the same job causing confusion and frustration
    3. Your roles and responsibilities are not clearly defined so during your performance review your manager can write whatever
    4. Sometimes you are hired for a role but then you are not allowed to do that role, you end up doing something rubbish. This is because of the politics within the group (mainly management). Just waste of your time and to some extend ruining your career
    5. You will not be included in the key meetings or discussions where you must be participating, keeping you completely blind of the facts. There are deliberately many side discussions to avoid certain people to participate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On papers you may be completing the hills but reality is far from it. Culture needs to change drastically.

    I worked at D&B as a contractor

    Pros

    Company added new leadership a year ago, that seemed positive

    Cons

    Despite new visions and new leadership. The company continues to make short sighted decisions (e.g. layoffs, cutting project work) before any actual progress can be made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to seriously commit to a strategy (not just in words, but actions). Stop making short sighted decisions at the end of each quarter.

    I worked at D&B

    Pros

    -Flexible Schedule
    -Lots of paid time off

    Cons

    -pay isn't competitive
    -every aspect of work moves slowly and everyone seems just fine with that, except for the customers.
    -High attrition rates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a risk on doing something special for your customer base or risk toppling a company that's been around for centuries.

    Former Employee - Human Resources in Short Hills, NJ (US)

    I worked at D&B full-time

    Pros

    I had a decent commute. Cafeteria was well-priced. Good location, near Mall at Short Hills. Bathrooms were always clean.

    Cons

    Job wasn't as described at interview. I quickly discovered that managers will steal employees' ideas and present it to senior leaders as their own - happened to me a few times. HR thinks they're truly global strategists because salaries are on par with larger companies. Long-tenured mgrs isn't a positive thing here, b/c they have no new ideas and its like inbreeding. Glad I'm outta there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house of long-tenured employees, especially in HR. Develop long-term growth plans for each department before spontaneously going on hiring sprees, only to fire months later.
