    Biz that's trapped in the past

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNot many - work from home so you don't have to deal with incompetent supervisors

    ConsClearly upper management has no understanding of modern work environments or how to innovate. Too busy fixing what's broken instead of building better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRun for the gates

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great opportunity and earnings potential, supportive management, typical stress in sales role.

    Sales (Current Employee) Austin, TX (US)

    ProsBest in class company and products, good mix of teamwork and personal autonomy, leadership is quality with mix of management styles, uncapped earnings if you commit to best practices and focus on activity, ability to help companies with consultative approach.

    ConsSome micromanagement, as with any sales role, metrics are biggest focus, hard to move into new positions, base salary is lower than other similar jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider creating an environment with more potential for movement and opportunity throughout departments. By evaluating individual performance, work ethic and strengths, talent would be uncovered.

    Improving but long road ahead

    Senior Product Director (Current Employee)

    ProsWork-life balance, really nice and well-intentioned people, decent pay and benefits. The new CEO, Bob Carrigan, is great and you can already see a seismic shift in the approach to a lot of things. He's done away with much of the hierarchy that has plagued the company for years.

    ConsWe are in transition between the old world and the new. Unfortunately, we need to contend with a lot of old baggage that continues to drag things down. That all said, I'm hopeful that things will continue to improve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep fighting the good fight and don't give in to quarterly street pressures.

    Great people but too many managers

    Software Developer (Former Employee) Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    ProsD&B had one of best work life balances which I have experienced in my career :)
    They realise that not everything is good and seem to be trying to make them better
    Some great people are employed, in ability and also just nice people

    ConsMany managers. I was once reporting the same item to two PMs, a team/scrum lead, and also a program manager.
    This gives a sense of management perhaps being disorganised, and so project priority shifts and changes all of the time.
    Dealing with old/obsolete technology.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps to take a break from hiring managers for a short while.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    On the way to extinction

    Senior Project Director (Former Employee) Short Hills, NJ (US)

    ProsSmart and collaborative people trying to do the right thing, decent work life balance

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a consistent strategy and approach, develop a consultative approach versus selling software
