    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive. Most people are smart, friendly, helpful. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    In an effort to "grow the business," good sr managers are replaced with new people who try to re-invent the old wheel and bring in their own new teams to replace the seasoned talent. Then they are replaced and he cycle continues. No sense of longevity here. Very poor morale. Not a long-term job...

    Advice to Management

    If your greatest asset is your people, live by it and retain those good, smart talented people, leaders included. "Do Good" for your own...

    Pros

    Working at D&B is a pleasure, the culture which is led from the top, shows a real commitment to its employees' satisfaction. Our CEO invests in "having fun" as well as opportunities for employees to contribute to give back to their communities.

    Cons

    In some pockets of the company, particularly Finance, the terrific culture that Bob has fostered is not felt as sincerely.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and try to help in fostering the culture in pockets where it's lagging.

    Pros

    The culture is fantastic. The management treats you more like family than employees. The benefits package, salary, and compensation plan is competitive. The stress level is manageable.

    Cons

    Huge time commitment. It's not a job where you clock in and leave the work at home.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees and improve.

    Pros

    Good pay. Good benefits and allowed to work from home (although you're judged for it). 20 days vacation is excelent

    Pros

    D&B has very nice people who are smart. They also have nice facilities. They have been in business for so long and keep trying to reinvent themselves to remain relevant. A for effort.

    Cons

    The company is in disarray and have been having layoffs every two weeks for the past two years. They have no performance rating system so it is at the discretion of your Manager. These types of Managers are the reason good employees leave. No diversity at D&B.

    Advice to Management

    Determine where you want the company to go, reduce the frequent layoffs, ensure Managers don't discriminate but most importantly treat your good employees much better.

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

    Pros

    Could not be in a better place today. What Dun and Bradstreet has to offer is sorely needed! Making smart moves and acquisitions to focus on sales acceleration, data and crm. They are the BEST at this at they can WIN. Also, superior coworkers, some of the best ever. Excellent brand. Pride of working there.

    Cons

    Leadership at least when I was there (left 2+ years ago and bob c was still pretty new) was mixed, from excellent to ruthless. Image matters a great deal to many at this org. If you fit in and toe the line you'll be golden. If you express truth or dissent you'll be risking your shiny happy future. Maybe that's changed under the new "regime"... that would be wonderful as this was and could be a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe your own bs so much. Keep it real. Stop playing "out with the old" if there's anyone w History left. Value diversity of experience through actions not words.
