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

    Pros

    Colleagues are nice. Comfortable environment. If you are pursuing comfort and stability, here is for you. If you are looking at career growth, here is a nono.

    Cons

    Inconsistent upper management. Commission given is as per management approval, as what they deem fit, even though you are supposed to receive the full stated amount as per terms and conditions.
    They dont value employees.

    Advice to Management

    Value the ones who contribute to the company, not always thinking that they are irreplaceable. That is the reason you can't retain true talent.

    Pros

    Company has good compliance policy

    Cons

    Company is showing leniency towards implementing compliance rules and Code of Ethics guidelines. It is not punishing those who violate them. This is true for at least India, Mumbai office. I am afraid the company might lose its status of Most Ethical Company if it does not take firm decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into the affairs of India, Mumbai location. There is a lot of dissatisfaction among employees because of wrongdoers not getting punished. This might affect the reputation of D&B.

    mostly Nite stay,, Cost cutting hence less resource have to do triple resources job. In total for dbsame there are only 40 employees

    Advice to Management

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexibility and the people. Salary was above average. Tries to implement new ideas to grow.

    Cons

    Sales Leadership. Limited vision. Lip service to growth - too much infighting to be as productive as it could be. Benefit package - used to be excellent, now it is below average. As noted in the pros - they are willing to try to implement new ideas, however, execution is not well thought out and more have failed than succeeded.

    Advice to Management

    Regroup.. A lot of talented individuals left the business. Some on their own, some not. Get back to what made the company a growth company and realize that what may work at another company doesn't necessarily work at D&B. Once they realize the differences they'll be better off.
