    I worked at D&B full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, interesting work, motivating atmosphere, good benefits. New CEO is energizing and exciting. Has been a great company for years and seems to be improving. I learned a lot here and found it a very positive experience overall.

    Cons

    Like any corporate place, has its Dilbert moments but overall it's a good place to work and treats employees well. It is undergoing change and that can always create a "wait and see" vibe but all signs seem good.

    Pros

    Brand of the company.
    Quoted company.
    History of the company.

    Cons

    People / life value absolutely not important.
    Values ​​are present only on the paper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local management seeks more its visibility than business strategies.
    The company is managed locally as a farm.
    Management invests more to convince employees that they have the chance to work for D & B than to convince customers to choose D&B solutions.
    The company is not gratefuld.
    In case of dismissal management prefers to invest in court proceedings as to compensate its employees.
