    Former Employee - Small Business Development Inside Sales Representative

    I worked at D&B full-time

    Pros

    The pros are the usual perks that can come with working for a large corporation: slightly better than average pay, good benefits, good potential rewards for sales producers...etc.

    Cons

    Office culture resembles shark-infested waters, with the leadership pitting sales reps against each other, while dangling the potential golden carrot (sales achievement rewards) that for the overwhelming majority of reps never really materializes. The company goes through continuous rounds of layoffs, in which hundreds are let go to bring in "fresh meat".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop structure of sales that nurtures spirit of collaboration to increase sales, while simultaneously increasing departmental morale. Focus on product diversification and relevancy in today's market, to once again widen the competitive gap.

    I have been working at D&B full-time

    Pros

    The company has a high tenure of employees which is the best indication that the company takes care of the employees.
    Great work life balance and good pay for the job.

    Cons

    The company has an extremely niche focus which can be a long term career liability.
    Internal mobility is limited.
    The company has a new leadership as of late last year, but limited changes have happened under the new management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote a culture of meritocracy.

    I worked at D&B (more than a year)

    Pros

    Consistently working towards building a better company for its customers, employees and really cares about the world

    Cons

    Direction changes so quickly that technology could not keep up - the industry wants 100% viability - which data is impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage all internal resources, youd be surprised by the talent - Women are important too

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

    Pros

    We have a new and growing management. The company is small in the big picture, but with growing technology and a fresh, new strategy, D&B is definitely going places. Excellent salaries, good benefits, and reward for work well-done. The new CEO Bob Carrigan is really determined to make this one of the best places to work, and I can clearly see the changes taking effect. Everything from simple aesthetic changes to where our vision, strategy, and product lines are progressing, this company is really beginning to move with the times, modernize, grow, globalize, and become everything one would want in a company. It is definitely an exciting time to be here!

    Cons

    More work-life balance would be nice. More work-from-home opportunity would be helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a wonderful job staying connected to your employees, keeping us informed of everything you are doing, and taking advice from each and every one of us. Keep it up, and I hope to see more wonderful things to come!

    I worked at D&B

    Pros

    Partially subsidized cafeteria lunches and constant threat of layoffs mean you can manage some jaded, old, worthless scrubs.

    Cons

    Legions of backstabbing worms. Cronyism, favoritism and sycophants galore. Look out anyone who worked on DNBi North America the past 10 years... It's a sinking ship and the rats jumped off to nest in other corners of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the 75 percent of the company that has no value beyond collecting dust

    Pros

    Good people, casual dress code, new management turning things around

    Cons

    Extremely Long Hours!!! Managers in meetings all day and provide no guidance, no structured training for new hires. Everything is very manual on excel spreadsheets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in some better systems, cut down on meetings and institute dept. training.
