    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.

    Pros

    Great people who enjoy their work and are committed to good outcomes.

    Cons

    Depending on the group, there are a lot of ingrained ideas and processes that are slow to change when faced with more efficient methods and tools. Also there wasn't a common mission with alot of people doing work that didn't provide value.

    Advice to Management

    Understand and listen to your employee's ideas but filter those that don't walk the walk but talk the talk.

    Excellent team-oriented job. The most exciting and supportive culture to work hard and make well deserved money for. There is always help available. There is plenty of room to grow within the company.

    Cons

    It is a very aggressive position to take on, but well worth it!

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    D&B is committed to company growth. They also seem to be trying to modernize the company - being almost 200 years old, it can be viewed as stuffy - so this new branding has been positive

    Cons

    As with all large companies, there is a lot of inefficiencies and bureaucracy to get things done. As an example budgets for the year aren't really set until around March - then you have to start a year long project already 3 months behind.

    Pros

    Very lively and jolly environment, good people, lots of activities and good pay. Office location is very good, beach view.
    I would definitely recommend working here.

    Cons

    Appraisal not that good. Health insurance is really expensive.
    I don't feel any other cons are there. Work hard to understand everything but when you do, you're the boss

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The cafeteria is well run and offers a wide variety of menu options. The cleaning crews and security are very professional

    Cons

    Dun and Bradstreet is a 20/80 workplace - 20 percent of the people do 80 percent of the work. Managers and others seem to spend most of their time in meetings, working from "home", at lunch or just not available. If you are over 50 at Dun and Bradstreet and do actual verifiable work you will be replaced. If you do nothing and an not held accountable you can hide out in D&B for years. Please note that D&B Human Resources exists to protect the corporation from their employees.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many middle managers who simply do not know how to do the work they are managing. My last manager only knew was job description, I met him 4 times over a year. If he was asked to sit in for me and to my job he would have failed and probably would not be willing to learn my job.
