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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic culture
    Good work-life balance
    Renovated offices

    Cons

    Minimal development at the entry level

    Advice to Management

    Please keep an eye on the more entry-level individuals in the company. Professional development is invaluable to people in that age bracket--career progressions don't need to be immediate, however, knowing that development and growth are sincerely on a manager's mind makes it easier to stay with a company for an extensive period of time.

    Pros

    Flexibility and the people. Salary was above average. Tries to implement new ideas to grow.

    Cons

    Sales Leadership. Limited vision. Lip service to growth - too much infighting to be as productive as it could be. Benefit package - used to be excellent, now it is below average. As noted in the pros - they are willing to try to implement new ideas, however, execution is not well thought out and more have failed than succeeded.

    Advice to Management

    Regroup.. A lot of talented individuals left the business. Some on their own, some not. Get back to what made the company a growth company and realize that what may work at another company doesn't necessarily work at D&B. Once they realize the differences they'll be better off.
