Dun & Bradstreet – Why Work For Us?

Life here at Dun & Bradstreet might surprise you! Each day, we are taking steps to transform our culture into one that activates the very best in our people. At the heart of our work you’ll find our core values: to be data inspired, relentlessly curious and inherently generous. These values inform how we engage with our customers and how we energize one another. Step inside and you'll feel that energy in our hallways and product labs, client meetings and whiteboard sessions, hashtags and annual reports. We're also exploring what needs to change to accelerate creativity and innovation. For example:

  • We eliminated traditional performance reviews in favor of a more continuous dialog between team members and their managers.
  • We've gained efficiences after implementing 'just enough process' to get a job off the ground (the results of which have been refreshing and liberating).
  • We flattened the structure of our organization so that our leaders are accessible and more in tune with our people.
  • And, we changed our dress policy: 'Dress for Your Day' simply means wear what you want.

So if you thrive in a fluid, agile culture but want the solidity of a storied brand, come join us!

Who We Are:

For nearly two centuries, we here at Dun & Bradstreet have been helping our customers and partners build their most valuable relationships in business by uncovering truth and meaning from data. Today, our global team of 5,000 employees is still dedicated to this unique purpose.

With the largest commercial database on the planet, we work with nearly ninety percent of the Fortune 500, and companies of every size around the world, who rely on us to build smart relationships and support their growth.

Our Heritage: How We Began

In 1842, Lewis Tappan started the Mercantile Agency (that would later become Dun & Bradstreet) as a network of correspondents who served as a unique source of reliable, consistent and objective credit information, fostering business relationships and man's confidence in man.

Now, nearly two centuries later, we've chanced beyond recognition. Our credit ledgers now take the form of hundreds of millions of business records. And our agents who rode on horseback are now data scientists with predictive analytics. But amidst this change, our mission remains the same. We are inspired by human progress - the desire to grow and find new, better ways of doing business.

undefinedWe are proud to offer a broad range of benefits designed to meet the diverse needs of our team members. The program consists of the following four benefit clusters with plans that support the various aspects of your life:


Health Care

Health CareWe depend on our healthcare benefits to help stay healthy and protect against the high cost of a serious illness or injury. Our benefits program offers two Medical Plan options, Dental and Vision benefits. We also provide you with the ability to contribute before-tax dollars to a Health Care Flexible Spending Account or a Health Savings Account to help you pay for eligible medical expenses.


ProtectionProtecting you and your family in case of unexpected illness or injury is an important part of our benefits program. To make sure that you have the necessary financial resources in case of disability or death, we offer Life, Disability, Voluntary Group Accident, Long Term Care, Group Legal, and Home and Auto Insurance. We also provide Company-paid Life Insurance and Business Travel Accident Insurance at no cost to you.

Retirement and Savings

A Commuter Benefit Program, Fitness Reimbursement, Educational Assistance, Matching Gifts, and paid Holidays and Vacation are also available.

Whether you are a seasoned team leader or just kicking off your career, your growth matters to us. That’s why we recently put a new team of people in place who are thinking long and hard about how to support your development. While we’re still in the early phases of our planning, our end-goal is to set you up for success in your role at Dun & Bradstreet and build a robust curriculum for leaders and individual contributors of all levels.

  • The Foundation: “Performance Agility”. The goal is to accelerate strategy execution by accelerating individual performance. It's creating the right conditions and mindset for you to leverage your strengths to deliver and develop.
  • For Team Leaders: As a Leader, you’ll play an important role in the lives of your people and are expected to perform at the top of your game. To help, we’ve developed a learning program that will enhance the value you bring to your team and the company. We offer three core programs and a variety of electives so that leaders can create their own ideal learning experience.
  • Our CEO Leadership Experience Program: This new program is designed to provide our most senior leaders an intensive and rigorous learning experience. Cohorts of individuals work together through several phased in-person experiences where they refine their personal brand, reflect on their current leadership practices, and further develop their ability to lead and influence within our company values.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than a year)


    I absolutely love everything about my job. My job at Dun & Bradstreet gave me every opportunity I needed to accomplish the goals I set for myself. Not only had it opened doors for me in every area of my life, the D&B culture is one I've never had the pleasure of experiencing at any other job. My coworkers are my family. They are always motivational, positive, and supportive. Every person at Dun & Bradstreet works hard every day because we are all out to accomplish something for ourselves or our families. I would recommend this job for anyone willing to do what it takes to get where they need to be in life.


    It is a job like any other job. You will get out of it exactly what you put in.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be supportive to help your teams grow to be better. I also love how you value your employees and reward us for our hard work. It is nice to feel like your company values your hard work as an employee.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet (Tucson, AZ).


    I liked Dun & Bradstreets interview style. First you take a few little tests online. Then you are invited to a reception where managers mingle amongst you and 20+ others also interviewing. During the reception a manager will call your name for one to one traditional interview.
