    Pros

    Growth and innovation are the watchwords. New CEO has brought new leadership, added roles that had formerly been missing (Global leaders of HR and Marketing), defined key strategic initiatives (hills), and continues to reaffirm that we're all in this together and everyone's contribution is both encouraged and required. Those who engage and communicate thoughtfully have ample opportunities for contribution and growth. Those who fail to step up are easily identified and do not last long.

    Cons

    The company seems like it's been in a 1980s/90s outsourcing and financial engineering death spiral since the 1980s or 1990s. There is a fair amount of hangover from that time, but the new leadership and strategy are redefining the culture and not looking back.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and keep moving. I and many others are engaged and pulling with and for you. We appreciate your support and contribution. This is working. I've been in a few acquisitions and turnarounds, and this is the most exciting place and time I've ever worked.

  2. Fair and honest workplace

    Pros

    The people are smart and nice and always helpful. The atmosphere has changed for the better in the last year or so under the new CEO

    Cons

    Seems like every 18 months there is a new direction that the company wants to go in. This makes tan employee a little hesitant to take chances.

    Advice to Management

    Need to stick to one vision and go with it. Although the market place is changing, D&B needs to act like the premium player in the market and not like it is a monopoly because the competition will undercut D&B and take away market share

    Pros

    The people at D&B are great, from the CEO down to the brand new intern. I have never had an issue finding someone help me figure out how to do something procedural, and the powers that be are particularly receptive to new ideas. I don't do the work that the company is known for, but instead background operations in which I have a particular expertise and anybody to whom I must offer relevant advice or guidance openly accepts that I am here for this reason, only raising objections when my input conflicts with their own personal expertise.

    Cons

    Relatively disorganized in many ways, though the new executive team is obviously working toward changing this. Simple tasks, like getting an IP drop installed, can take weeks or even months longer than necessary. A lot of my job pertains to initiating technological services which is something D&B outsources, thus slowing the process significantly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work, but also streamline the simple processes.There's no reason for so many paper trails, service tickets, etc.

  7. Great experience for internship, people are very helpful on everything, and it was a great networking experience for me!

    Pros

    I was working with the global product team, there are multiple tasks that I had to handle at the same time. Those project required me to gather data and information from different departments, and it was a valuable experience for on building networks. Also, I attended lots of information sessions, from how to speak like a business professional to how to communicate with coworkers efficiently. Overall, an amazing intern experience!

    Cons

    There are no cons I observed
