    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to work remotely most of the time

    Cons

    Having a leader that would scream and yell at employees in front of the office and on conference calls. I've never worked for such a horribly unqualified leader in my entire career. It became blatantly obvious she was out to make herself look good to upper management - no mater the cost to her team.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your leaders that have remote, digital marketing teams.

    Pros

    Lots of good, hard working people here but they are basically hamstrung by ridiculous C-level VPs and their self entitled executive admins.

    Cons

    They treat much of their workforce here as disposable. Quite a few lawsuits centered on unlawful termination. Enter at your own risk!

    Pros

    You get to be unprofessional, dress like a slob, listen to rap music, smoke pot on company time and property. If you are a customer you can pay for a better rating and submit your own false info.

    Cons

    Rules smules, they only exist to take away your earned commission. Human resources should be renamed Management Protection Program

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to a group that has integrity and ethics.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I found a way out. This company taught me exactly how not to treat people. I was successful here, but was handicapped by leadership.

    Cons

    I worked under the worst leadership chain imaginable. No long term vision. They didn't understand sales cycles. No respect for employees. Bad-mouthed fellow employees and our customers.

    My manager shuffled territories for his team every year... every year, distributing my hard earned pipeline to the rest of the team in an effort to make him look like a strong manager. Never allowed his employees to have great success. He constantly blamed his team for his failures, and veiled his coaching (a term I use lightly) under the corporate concept of "open and honest feedback." He spoke a lot of "perception," but that was his excuse for not paying attention.

    HR allowed the sales leadership to be rogues behave like unprofessionally, and possibly illegally --- constantly turning over the sales force before leadership behaviors could be exposed. Preached the importance of work-life balance, but this was a lie too.

    Consistently found ways to not compensate the sales force for their work.

    Consistently forced to make poor decisions that sacrificed long-term success and stability for the sake of "hitting this month."

    Everyday, I wait for a call from the SEC asking me to make a statement regarding the activities I witnessed firsthand.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the art of respect and appreciation. Work on strategic vision, not tactical behaviors. Don't be the enemy of your employees.

    If there is an issue, make sure to ask the right questions to the right people. Your middle management team has proven they are willing to lie and hurt employees in an effort to hide their actions.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you go way over goal you will earn big commissions. I have had several large commission checks.

    Cons

    Before I took the job, a friend of a friend warned me of the management in Tucson. OMG, I should have listened. The management team consists of, for the most part, uneducated rednecks with no leadership skills and definitely no HR training. Racist and sexist occur all the time. They like to challenge men's manhood by asking a rep if they "have a pair". I have heard a Manager compare a sales call to a sexual act. They are so ignorant they even brag about being ignorant. One Manager's favorite line "I have had a million HR complaints but I am like Teflon nothing sticks".

    Advice to Management

    Some HR training and general leadership training might be an idea.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet as an intern

    Pros

    Some work is good, people are really nice, visibility to senior leadership. You are given a lot of opportunities for the fact that they want to get work done with wages that you are being paid as intern.

    Cons

    The offer letter says "opportunity for full time offer" - but catch is - it depends! despite working super hard, you find out that there is no vacancy for full time and we will keep in touch. Last year put of 100 interns only 2-3 got offers!
    Pay is way below industry standards - $28 masters, $18 - undergrad
    Additionally, you will find most of the interns are interning there because they have father/mother/uncle working there.

    Advice to Management

    Be open that you are not considering to extend full time opportunities to interns. No need to deceive by putting false incentives in job descriptions.

    Pros

    None whatsoever for employees (tried very hard to find one)

    Cons

    Big difference between employees and direct management (different rules on the floor although 'walk the talk' is the catchphrase; no way to have an open discussion; hidden agenda's; 'all for the customer' is the slogan but it should be 'take as much money as you can from the customer even when we cannot deliver what we've promised and sold'.
