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 recently 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!

Nearly ninety percent of the Fortune 500, and companies of every size around the world, rely on our data, insights and analytics. 

We Help Our Customers Build Relationships Through Data. 

Growth is the lifeblood of business, and its most fundamental driver is the relationships a company fosters with prospects, customers and partners.

Over nearly two centuries of helping businesses understand this dynamic, we have honed the expertise of how data and analytics forge the relationships that lead to industry-leading performance. To activate these capabilities, we build – or co-develop with partners – solutions tailored to our customers, whether they are in marketing, sales, finance, supply, compliance or information technology. And we deliver this content however they want to consume it.

Our platform’s foundation is the world’s largest commercial database, with over 240 million company records we derive from 30,000 data sources and update 5 million times per day. We integrate this insight into our customers' core systems, workflows and cloud-based apps in ways that enhance their impact, and we also integrate with their existing data and third-party data sources. Our DUNSRight® process gives us the unmatched ability to turn an enormous stream of data into the high-quality information our customers need to grow their most valuable relationships.

    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.

    Talent Acquisition Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet.


    The process was two phone interviews and a face to face interview. The first phone interview I had was great. The individual I spoke to was passionate about her job and the team as a whole, asked great questions, and our conversation was effortless. I was really excited to move onto the next round. Then, the next person I spoke to was very short with all of her questions and honestly pretty rude. It was like speaking to a robot. I was told that I would receive feedback by the end of that week and heard nothing. I reached out to them and was told that they would follow up by the end of the following week regardless of whether or not they want to bring me in for a face to face interview. I never heard back, but quite honestly, I wouldn't want to work under that second interviewer based off of that phone conversation. Pretty ironic given that the main thing I spoke to the first interviewer was about creating a positive candidate experience.
