    Pros

    illion has a strong product set that is in demand. The organisation delivers capabilities that assist companies to remain compliant with government legislation. like that coming out of the Banking Royal Commission. This allows sales team members to go to market with a really competitive product set that is non-discretionary for customers.

    Cons

    It is a fast-paced, technology-centric business so suits those best who like that sort of rhythm and are tech savvy. Not ideal if you aren't into that combination!

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet Australia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of change going on with opportunity to get involved in diverse range of work Clear focus on work that brings value to the business rather than bureaucracy - if you come up with a great idea you will be given the scope to develop it Flat structure - minimalist management hierarchy and direct involvement in initiatives from senior management

    Cons

    Time pressure and changing priorities - more opportunities than there are resources Clear focus on work that brings value to the business and innovation - if you like a BAU role this may not be the right fit

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet Australia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It’s fantastic to have such a wide range of products to sell that are all so cutting edge and relevant to modern companies. I can have such great conversations with customers and prospects. I also have a tool kit of services to sell that can genuinely improve their business which is so rewarding. There’s no where like it illion at the moment

    Cons

    Location can be tough to get to from the north, customers have high expectations with short delivery time lines. I guess it’s a by product of people wanting what you sell and wanting it quickly. Good problem to have !

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet Australia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can leave unlike jail.

    Cons

    Screamed at by the CEO. Told by the COO that customer had to sign in blood. CEO attempted to have multiple people fired at the customer site because they did not sign his convoluted contracts. 6.30am meetings to provide an update on contracts to be signed. Chief Sales Officer is a psychopath that will threaten your job in public. Thought about suicide went on antidepressents. Escaped illcatraz.

    Pros

    You will learn survival skills with your colleagues trying to navigate the political jungle and bullying

    Cons

    Company is led by a Management team who have financial investment in the company and are waiting for their fat pay day when the business is sold. You will be a disposable commodity used until you burn out

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with candidates. It’s not fast paced it’s unbearable constant unrealistic deadlines and moving goalposts only 10% of sales people earn bonus

    Pros

    Fast paced, great data and analytical capabilities. The Data & Analytics team is an awesome place to work. There are always cool and challenging projects to engage with and the leadership team is extremely supportive.

    Cons

    None come to mind with illion. However, glassdoor need to expand the list of job functions they allow you to choose from. There is nothing even remotely close to Data Science / Analytics in their drop down menu (data is clearly not at the heart of what they do like it is at illion).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The investment they are making in data, technology and people really makes it an exciting place to work.
