    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company compensation was competitive - it had to be considering the stress you experienced working there. The were relatively flexible where you work. Their technology systems allowed you to work remotely easily.

    Cons

    At the time I was working there, senior management had no clue what to do. They continued to reorganize constantly. I worked there for 52 weeks during which my group reorganized 9 times. How can anyone succeed those conditions? Activity was the focus, irrespective of results.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Short hours, place is empty at 5pm. On-site cafeteria. Minimal effort required.

    Cons

    ZERO energy in the company. It's a dead zone and a place where careers go to end. If you're in the last few years before retirement and just want to keep your head down, earn a check, and keep busy, this is the place for you. If you have ANY aspirations about growing your career or upward mobility, stay away...far, far away. I would never go back for any amount of money.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and get rid of some of the layers upon layers of management and bureaucracy. You have an iconic brand that could be one of the top 10 in the Fortune 500.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work flexibility is increasing
    Company put in solid severance package (too often used)

    Cons

    Open floor plans hamper focus
    Too much financial alchemy rather than increasing revenue
    New layoffs constantly around the corner

    Advice to Management

    Focus on core business and being a value company rather than acquiring and disposing of subsidiaries in an effort to be a growth company. It hasn't worked for the past 15 years

    Pros

    the pay was good, full benefits although health coverage was not the best.

    Cons

    overworked, little to no leadership and guidance within the company. Large scale layoffs firing dozens of people at the same time. Have never witnessed such a blatant lack of professional in my life.

    Advice to Management

    Its a shame management is tarnishing a company with such a great history. Too much too correct, start treating employees with respect first. With current leadership I don't think their is much hope going forward.

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

    Pros

    Some great people that work for the company...Felt like a family!

    Cons

    There needs to be a change in the C-level executives, they do not listen to the employees. There are tooooo many products to maintain, the company needs to simplify the product catalog.

    Advice to Management

    1)Company re-orgs do not always help. You laid off many great people/managers and moved around managers that were not ready for their new roles, causing a lot of problems due to lack of understanding.
    2) Reduce the number of products even if you lose customers for now, focus on a few products.
    3) Be open to new ideas and technologies
    4) Hire better sales people that can sell more than one use case for the data which gives you better account penetration.
    5) Have better data on the top 3-5 million used companies.

    Pros

    Historic Company with tremendous potential.

    Cons

    It's sad to see such a historic company lose its way so desperately. The strategy that was put in place less than 2 years ago, blown up and replaced by something that appears to be haphazard and irrelevant. Good people thrown carelessly away while others with less impact survive. No focus on providing logical reasoning for recent actions. The leadership has taken the employee base from highly engaged to actively looking elsewhere and hoping for a package....just very sad.

    Advice to Management

    People are your best asset. It's important to treat them accordingly.
