    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

    People, culture, flexibility. I love working at D&B. The transformation since Bob Carrigan joined has been steady and positive. There leadership team is inspiring. There is a great focus on people.

    Cons

    Not a ton of budgetary flexibility. Things are tight and there is not a lot of fluff...for most. It is not so bad that the necessities aren't maintained, but there are times when choices need to be made.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the few who aren't additive and bring in more fresh ideas. Sales needs to be hungrier.

    "Big Company Benefits Come with Compromise"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

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

    Pros

    D&B is a large and fairly stable company where many have had long careers. The financial stability and benefits allow employees to achieve work-life balance.

    Cons

    Job satisfaction for many is at an all-time low due to recent managerial decisions. Many who loved their jobs are now unhappy, not because of the work but because of the culture shifts and a fear to speak up and become the next on the chopping block of the annual layoffs. Management tries to manufacture a better culture but the more they try to force people to bond and enjoy their jobs, the more it drifts farther away from a genuinely happy culture.

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Needs a better culture in order to keep people. Young talent won't stay unless culture is improved.

    Cons

    Senior management needs to get rid of some people. Lots of HR people leaving the business. Not a good sign.

    Advice to Management

    Employee opinion surveys work well, you might want to try and listen.

    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.

    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.
