    Pros

    Great work experience, particularly product and solutions and learning all the skills needed to manage customer accounts. Great culture and coworkers for the most part.

    Cons

    Compensation, management and hostile customer base.

    Advice to Management

    Many customer's don't understand value of DUNSRight, and they really don't appreciate poor service and ham-handed salesmanship from account managers.

    Pros

    Collegial, good life balance, nice people to work with, reasonable compensation

    Cons

    Tough place to work if you want action.

    Advice to Management

    After decades of being run to push down costs, there are areas where millions of dollars are at risk, and a fix would be a tiny percentage of the revenues at risk. Management really needs to make these unglamorous but essential investments. As an employee, my greatest concern is not about compensation, or benefits, or a friendly atmosphere, but about concern that the company is investing adequately to ensure D&B will remain a going concern for more than the next few years. It's way too tough to get modest budget requests for things that will shore up businesses that serve key clients and make millions for the firm. That said, I think broadly Management is a good bunch - maybe with too much on your plate?
    Maybe it might make sense to have someone specific in senior management whose job is to look at the many unsexy but key businesses, and figure out how to shore them up from a decade of relentless resource cutting.

    Pros

    Hard to Find any Positives....

    Cons

    There are thousands of Cons.
    I will start the interview process.
    There will be 3 rounds of interview
    2 technical rounds and 1 manager round.
    Interview process will be very easy. But the panel will come very late they may call in week days for 2nd and 3rd round of interview. Each round you need to wait for the hole day. Finally they will call you one more day for salary discussion . After the interview they will tell you to wait for client for billing or budget.They will call every 2 or 3 days and will tell they will release offer and after some days they will call for one more final round of interview for client and will tell your not selected.

    Worst and lazy people working in this organization as managers and they don't know current technologies in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Please resign from service and do some business to survive your family. don't work in IT Companies.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, definitely rewarded the employees for working hard. The company cared about a work-life balance and understood the need to work remotely.

    Cons

    When I was there the technology was outdated. They outsource much of IT and a fair amount of the knowledge. It took a while to get institutional knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better balance between insourcing and outsourcing technical functions. For the sole purpose of driving better business outcomes.

    Pros

    Great people. Worklife balance exists in most parts of the org. CEO is very personable and approachable. Company is in good financial status. Getting more modern with policies (e.g. dress code).

    Cons

    Product innovation is talked about, but lacking in execution. Don't expect funding/resources to help achieve your objectives. Seems like there are so many groups that want to do their own thing which really translates to a lack of focus across the company (the CEO is trying to correct this). Despite a new HR Leader, HR/Recruiting is embarrassing and could use a severe overhaul. My experience as a prospect/new hire was poor. I also recommended a friend for a job...her experience during the interview process was less than desirable. Office locations are spread out - probably too much for a company of this size & many employees work remote. Beware if you like to have actual human interaction.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at the recruiting/new hire process and find ways to improve it.

    Pros

    Company pays excellent package and that's it

    Cons

    Don't know where to start but here you go

    1. Complete organisational chaos in Dublin office. They pretend to show that they are in full control but reality is completely opposite
    2. Many people doing the same job causing confusion and frustration
    3. Your roles and responsibilities are not clearly defined so during your performance review your manager can write whatever
    4. Sometimes you are hired for a role but then you are not allowed to do that role, you end up doing something rubbish. This is because of the politics within the group (mainly management). Just waste of your time and to some extend ruining your career
    5. You will not be included in the key meetings or discussions where you must be participating, keeping you completely blind of the facts. There are deliberately many side discussions to avoid certain people to participate

    Advice to Management

    On papers you may be completing the hills but reality is far from it. Culture needs to change drastically.
