    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to work remotely most of the time

    Cons

    Having a leader that would scream and yell at employees in front of the office and on conference calls. I've never worked for such a horribly unqualified leader in my entire career. It became blatantly obvious she was out to make herself look good to upper management - no mater the cost to her team.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your leaders that have remote, digital marketing teams.

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

    Pros

    There's every reason to have confidence in current upper management. They seem to be on an upward trajectory. The brand marketing has improved significantly. Their corporate culture celebrates knowledge and kindness. Bad bosses or nasty people aren't tolerated for long. This is a place where people aren't micro-managed or bullied. I never had a boss who treated me unkindly or held unrealistic expectations as to my job performance. Benefits and pay are now comparable to other large companies, maybe even tech companies in this area. Nice new location with several swank amenities in a "good" area of town. PTO is generous and about 2x the amount of other employers.

    Cons

    The company rested on its laurels for many years and let technology get ahead of it. That's swiftly changing for the good. Previous management's focus seemed (from the outside looking in) more about how to minimize damage than about how to cultivate new growth. Leadership/career development could still use some improvement. The new office is not centrally located and not amenable to public transportation usage.

    Advice to Management

    Like many large organizations, there aren't enough opportunities for lateral movement or upward career trajectory. There was next to no emphasis on employee development until the last few months I was there. It's not an employer's responsibility to guide the career paths of its employees, especially given our current economy. I would never imply that my career success is anyone's responsibility other than my own. However, it would be nice, when an employee expresses interest, ambition, and initiative, if more guidance would be provided by leadership. That being said, it was a fundamentally positive experience. I would go back if a job came along for which I would be a good fit. I'd rank D&B among the top 3 employers I've ever had the privilege to work for.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    Lots of good, hard working people here but they are basically hamstrung by ridiculous C-level VPs and their self entitled executive admins.

    Cons

    They treat much of their workforce here as disposable. Quite a few lawsuits centered on unlawful termination. Enter at your own risk!
