    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some mavericks within D&B - and they are the only characters who any drive or vision for delivering great solutions to customers, whilst ensuring that the team spirit is built and a profit/margin realised for D&B.

    Cons

    The 'culture-change' at D&B has been an unmitigated disaster - principally because of the poor leadership. 'Firings' and 'redundancies' of the key people 'drivers of change' have meant that the culture-change has become a joke - something that has been imposed from the top down (USA). The 'USA D&B culture' is broken - why export it across the business - it doesn't fit, it doesn't work and isn't delivering for customers, staff nor investors. Little or no appreciation of local talent and ideas. The leadership style at D&B is 'do it, or else'... with constant stream of 'compromise agreements' as it's core strategy for handling 'people change'. Sackings in sales are brutal - little recognition of ideas or plans from the ground up-if it isn't from USA it simply doesn't count.

    Advice to Management

    Forward leaning, modern - what a joke. Leadership is more than masking a failing business model by simply buying-up another company. It's hard to believe that investors (see investor calls or town halls) allow themselves to be manipulated by the D&B spin on 'why or why we cannot grow our market share'. Joke=D&B Leadership

    Change is a constant with reorganizations at least once per year.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    Well established brand with good quality products and smart people.

    Cons

    Saturated market with little room for new business growth. CEO has Unrealistic new business sales goals. Combine that with the constant changes to the compensation plan and you find yourself struggling to meet your goals. Combine all that with working 10+ hours per day just to try to keep up with all the demands placed on you.

    Advice to Management

    You can only whip salespeople for so long in an effort to drive towards your unrealistic goals. At some point it becomes counter productive and productivity will go down and you'll start to lose good sales people. This trend has already started and will continue under your management.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Good work-life balance 2. Some benefits are very generous 3. Looks great on a resume if future employers know who DnB is 4. Happy hour is fun but not a reason to pick an employer

    Cons

    1. Company is old and moves very slowly. Trying to promote new programs or technology is stonewalled by "we can't afford it." The company can afford to do a lot but just doesn't and there's never an explanation for constant shortcomings as an organization. 2. Some benefits are wonderful and others are the worst. If you can reasonably afford a health plan deductible of $2,500 then I have some real estate to sell you. HR is completely indifferent to requests for changes in benefits offered. 3. Executive management likes to think the company has changed but nothing is any different after cleaning house. Change is always promised and never realized unless you are part of special teams that receive any budget for anything. 4. Intern program is a waste of time as many interns complain about having nothing to do. Why would a company do this? 5. Professional development is an afterthought unless you are next in line to a seat at the executive table. Everyone is already in line to receive a promotion. Don't expect to move unless you are friends with management.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your ride on the gravy train. Non-stop government contracts bring home the bacon.
