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

    Pros

    Flexible working environment, with new offices and open-minded colleagues. Lean Agile practices are quickly spreading, making work fluid, collaborative, and innovative. Culture is evolving toward a more diverse and inclusive culture.

    Cons

    In certain pockets of the company, the culture is still a bit old-school, but those pockets are slowly but surely coming around.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to find ways to support women in leadership roles.

    I have been working here for 25 years, and I appreciate the respect for employees, the flexibility and the advancement opportunities I have had throughout those 25 years!

    Cons

    Many people don't understand what we do - being the oldest commercial credit reporting agency in the world. It gets tiresome, having to explain it. Most think we are financial advisors but we are not.

    Keep putting employees as a top priority.

    Pros

    Since I was only exposed to the interview process I have nothing positive to add here. It’s a shame, according to some company scores it appeared to be a people company.

    Cons

    I was answering a question during a phone screening when the Sr Talent Professional cut me off & said, “let’s cut to the chase, what is your salary range.” She then ended the call abruptly & I never received any follow up. Very disappointed in the lack of professionalism from the call to the lack of closure. This was my 1st impression of the company. Not very good.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a legitimate phone screen with core questions that match talent needs, be less interested in a salary range.

    Pros

    Large company with many opportunities worldwide. Great teams throughout multiple locations. Culture which is appealing to many. Many employees who have been with the company for 30+ years.

    Cons

    Lacks in communication and organization down the line. Departments are siloed which makes it difficult to track down who owns what.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a model for communication and listen to your team members. Also, establish a standard for training.
