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

    Pros

    Good company to put on a resume.

    Cons

    Very impersonal and disconnected. C level has no idea what is really going on all they care about are their own bonuses. Products don't work and the competition is eating their lunch. The smoke and mirrors won't last forever. Everyone is afraid to speak up in fear of losing their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the inferior products. You let go of some key good people that know where the bodies are buried. It's time to clean house on the top floor.

    Pros

    Over the course of the last few years they have made a real effort to make working at D&B better. Dress for your day, more focus on learning and career development opportunities. Decent work life balance.

    Cons

    As with other companies that have been around a long time, not much attention has been paid to infrastructure, except when needed. Layoffs still happen, just not as often.

    Pros

    Great people who want to do good work
    Decent Pay and Bonus

    Cons

    Cost-cutting efforts have resulted in loss of valuable intellectual capital and promote a view of an uncertain job security. Decisions appear to have been made irrespective of whether an associate can add value in another role.

    Advice to Management

    While the elimination of positions makes good business sense, it should be done thoughtfully. Leaders should look to place associates who add value in open positions that will utilize their skills.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, work/life balance and severance.

    Cons

    Always the same story: do more with less, no resources but expectations continually increase. The culture is now more than ever to make it look good to senior managers, regardless of facts.

    The company is being transformed to the new CEO's vision of an marketing and publishing company. This isn't the core strength of this 175 year old company and may signal the death knell.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the knowledgeable employees who have held the company together for many years.
