    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.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic culture
    Good work-life balance
    Renovated offices

    Cons

    Minimal development at the entry level

    Advice to Management

    Please keep an eye on the more entry-level individuals in the company. Professional development is invaluable to people in that age bracket--career progressions don't need to be immediate, however, knowing that development and growth are sincerely on a manager's mind makes it easier to stay with a company for an extensive period of time.

    Make line managers understand their job is to lead and grow their people

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    After a few years working at smaller startups here in town, I decided to move back to a larger, more established firm. This was not what I expected to be doing, but I had such a positive experience with the recruiter and then the team that I was excited to come on board.

    -The People here are great
    -Modern Office w/Breakout rooms, Standing Desks, Good Tech and a great cafeteria on site (in Austin) with food you'll actually like
    -Great Benefits (health insurance is just ok, but they make up for it in other areas like $500 yearly in HSA just for getting a metabolic test, $400 yearly to spend on any wellness item like a bike or fitbit, and a great time off package)
    -Not afraid to incorporate modern software into new ventures and operational activities

    Cons

    Even though D&B is doing everything it can to keep an old, large company feeling smaller and modern, it IS a large established company. So if you are coming from startup world like me, you'll have to adjust to that; in particular, learning the organizational structure and how it matters to you, and sometimes getting lost in finding who can help you with what.

    Advice to Management

    Keep modernizing & keep supporting what is next. Invest into emerging product lines. Continue & whenever possible increase your communication to teams
