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

    Pros

    They don't chain you to your desk. If you're a blue-eyed blond with big ..., you'll do fine.

    Cons

    It's a call center yet they want a college degree. Please! Horrible management. If you're not a butt kisser you will never get anywhere in this company. There are useless meetings every day, several times a day where you're expected to clap like a trained seal and act happy. The majority of people hired do not make it past the first three month. They will try to keep you from using your vacation time and forget to tell you that it does not roll over into the next year. They violate the law and basic human rights in the name of the business. If you stand up for yourself suddenly you're written up for imagined tardies so keep track of your time where they cannot access and change it. It is the worst place I have ever worked in my life. I thought I would give it a chance but it has gotten worse each month. As soon as I find another job I'm leaving with 10 second's notice!

    Advice to Management

    Stop violating the law. I have never worked with so many people who think they are above the law because of their title. People are in car accidents, people get sick. Treating them as though their injury or illness is a personal affront speaks volumes about how employees are valued.

    Create a two way street and fair comp plan and brighten the atmosphere.

    Pros

    They have the benefit of being one of the longest running corporations in America. The folks in charge genuinely seem to care for their employees and being honest about the direction we're headed.

    Cons

    Too much redundancy. Too many long term employees with too much influence that are resistant to change and a better way of doing things.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to adapt.

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

    Pros

    Nice people, work from home options, average pay

    Cons

    Dinosaur of a company that doesn't have a future in the global data space. Basically, it is lists in a flat file with no machine learning or AI to make data actionable.

    Advice to Management

    Consider investing in technology. Providing updates on contact data and company tree structure every 9 months isn't going to cut it in this day and age.

    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

    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.
