    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    1. People - some of the most genuinely nice people I have ever worked with
    2. Culture - a lot of time and effort is invested to constantly improve the culture from good to better
    3. Tech Stack - surprisingly modern for such an established Content / Tech company

    Cons

    Every company going through modernisation and transformation has levels of change and evolution that can be unsettling to some staff. Such is life these days. Nothing out of the ordinary at D&B but just be aware that transformation does entail ongoing change :)

    Advice to Management

    Culture can be a long term strategic asset - takes effort to build but easy to lose - protect it throughout the transformations.

    Pros

    Company is Great and the culture is good.

    Cons

    Individuals have too much power. It is a high school popularity contest. People all like you when you're hot but if one person turns everyone shuns you for no reason. Senior management don't really know what's going on.

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

    Pros

    If you go way over goal you will earn big commissions. I have had several large commission checks.

    Cons

    Before I took the job, a friend of a friend warned me of the management in Tucson. OMG, I should have listened. The management team consists of, for the most part, uneducated rednecks with no leadership skills and definitely no HR training. Racist and sexist occur all the time. They like to challenge men's manhood by asking a rep if they "have a pair". I have heard a Manager compare a sales call to a sexual act. They are so ignorant they even brag about being ignorant. One Manager's favorite line "I have had a million HR complaints but I am like Teflon nothing sticks".

    Advice to Management

    Some HR training and general leadership training might be an idea.

    Pros

    Great company culture that values employees. Management takes their role as leaders seriously and employees are fairly compensated in an enriching environment.

    Cons

    Unless you can afford to live in Malibu, the commute is going to be inconvenient no matter where you're coming from.

    Advice to Management

    Allow a freer reign to the Malibu office. Don't ruin a good thing.

    Pros

    CEO and his executive team executing 2017 leadership style
    Skills are transferrable to other companies
    Pushing to become a modern day company to attract millennial

    Cons

    Pre-sales to Post-sales process broken
    Roles and Responsibilities not clear
    Resources spread thin, working on too many engagements
    Line managers do not invest time in growing their people or looking for them to grow in the company

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring in strong people from the outside
    Make line managers understand their job is to lead and grow their people
    Make your management learn 2017 leadership styles instead of using 1960 management styles

    Pros

    Opportunity to move around within the company and good atmosphere generally. Work/Life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    Benefits are ok but not really improving over time and in some instances getting worse (pensions, cars). The office furniture is from the previous building despite many other offices being updated to make it a better place to work.
    Although we try and be innovative and use the latest and greatest, we try and shoehorn in existing systems and lose all the benefits (this is led by the US teams who enforce their way of doing things on everyone else). We talk a good talk but that's often as far as it goes.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to the US for what is the right thing to do

    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.

    Pros

    Ability to work independently and work from home. Good people

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Be careful of how many people you downsize...may impact quality of life for the people who remain.
