    Great culture, strong and admired CEO, some unique benefits, pleasant working environment, highly profitable, smart and friendly people, ambitious and growing, truly global, little hierarchy, incredible data assets.

    a little too tied to Tesco, some Tesco staff brought in who are less supportive of the dh culture, some expensive centralisation which hasn't worked that well

    I have been working at dunnhumby as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are passionate about what they do and are willing to help with whatever problems you may face.
    The work is interesting, projects have substantial impact on dunnhumby's business operations and interns are usually given the opportunity to engage in creative thinking and shaping the direction of projects.
    Work-life balance is great, and the people are just as engaged socially as they are at work.

    Cons

    It's an entrepreneurial company with innovative roots, and sometimes it can seem like they're too big for their shoes. Growing pains of entering new markets and diving into new technologies don't seem to affect us interns now, but the employee retention issues that are associated with the changes may leave the talent profile looking quite different in the coming years. There are a lot of subject matter experts, who can leave projects in the dark if they switch teams or leave the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity of the talent pool, especially in computer science and more technical disciplines, is going to be crucial for dunnhumby's future as they expand into the use of new technologies and products.

    I worked at dunnhumby as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong company culture: quirky, fun and extremely intelligent people
    Great work-life balance: focus on working smarter rather than working longer (company has an on-site gym with workout classes that you can sign up for during the workday!)
    Growing company: rapid growth in industry expertise, building a new headquarters in Cincinnati and expanding globally
    Innovative, start-up environment: as interns, we not only had interesting and relevant projects with a real impact on the business, but also engaged with senior management on community-service projects. dunnhumby is a company which truly cares about its employees and clients.

    Cons

    Low brand recognition: not a lot of people are familiar with dunnhumby outside of the marketing world, but this is improving as the company continues to grow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide an innovative, entrepreneurial environment as the company continues to grow
