    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding executive team, very collaborative environment, terrific learning atmosphere, room for career growth, casual workplace setting, unique value proposition, great people and, most importantly, a very ethical company.

    Cons

    Since D&B is an old company, several senior leaders have spent their entire career there, which somewhat makes them resistant to change and learning.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with telecommuting and promote the amazing concept of the Failure Wall to the broader organization.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you have the adequate support from management to impact change. Because the company is so old, it's the best place for someone to come in that is willing to put in the hard work to bring the company to be competitive and innovative. Once you are able to get to know the business and learn enough about the processes and back end system, then there is a lot of potential for new solutions.

    Cons

    HR is the worst I've ever experienced in the 20 years of professional experience. For a department that is supposed to focus on the people, there is very little support and rarely there is response to any requests (no matter how simple or complex). 9 out of 10 times there is no response from the HRBP's and when you ask around to multiple teams and multiple locations, the sentiment is the same. HR will give you false promises of being a good partner and supporting you and then walk away and ignore you as if you don't exist. I hope the new investors come in and review the talent on this team to replacing the talent who is wiling to invest in the people. However, we are lucky that upper management will support the people even though HR as a function does not.
    Please allow the new talent come in and provide innovative solutions that have normally been controlled by employees there for more then 20 years especially in the East Coast offices. Their talent are valued for overall business knowledge, but their archaic ways and egos get in the way of growing the business.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hardly any weeks worked above 40 hours, great PTO policy, great product and good potential if CEO has the right vision. Good opportunities for training, mostly paid for.

    Cons

    People stuck in this company for decades are so far behind both technically and ethically. Many people in "leader" positions that have no business leading a team; very unprofessional and borderline in violation of HR rules related to harassment and bullying in the workplace. This makes for a very toxic work environment, which might be torpedoing DNB's efforts to attract fresh blood and talent.

    Advice to Management

    Please remove negative people from leadership positions. Retrain them and send them to classes on harassment in the workplace, and anger management, so that they can learn to treat other colleagues with respect and professionalism.

    Benefits are comparable to most companies D&B size.

    Cons

    Senior leaders are ineffective, product innovation is minimal and culture is all about renewals and sustaining margins. Client impact is rarely mentiond

    Advice to Management

    Terminate anyone over 5+ years that is VP or higher and bring in fresh talent that understand aspiration and accountability leadership.
