Competitive work environment

QA Analyst (Former Employee)
Parsippany, NJ (US)

I worked at D&B full-time for more than a year

ProsIntelligent employees, quiet work environment, always work to do. Multiple consultant companies = pushes employees to do better work. This is clear because most workers take their job seriously.

ConsPersonal growth, disconnect between upper management and lower management causes less than perfect quality. Multiple consultant companies = high competition, sometimes counter productive.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Improving but long road ahead

Senior Product Director (Current Employee)

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

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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

D&B is a good company overall. There is advancement opportunities available.

Account Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at D&B full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere is a great work life balance.

ConsLimited income potential. As a sales rep, I want the ability to write my own paycheck. While the income is good, it is not great. Because D&B is a huge company, implementing ideas or change can be difficult. Recent comp plan change was for the worse.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhile you are good at receiving feedback from employees, implementing it is another story. We are on the front lines, listen to us!!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
