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

    Pros

    - Interesting business domain;
    - Pool of talented people in the Dublin office, both highly-skilled and enthusiastic about technology;
    - Nice working environment

    Cons

    - Highly bureaucratic organization;
    - The organization prides itself as a technology “follower,” as opposed to being an early adopter – sometimes following far too late;
    - Deadlines arbitrarily set by senior management to satisfy political agendas, causing stress, unpaid overtime and poor end-product quality – short-sighted decisions to reach short-term goals;
    - Too many decision-makers, with conflicting opinions, causing the doers to constantly change directions;
    - Waterfall approach with planning and design upfront, preventing reactivity, often resulting in building products that do not necessarily meet customers’ needs;
    - The company employs too many contractors and vendors, responsible to some extent for the general inertia;
    - Endless and outdated test cycles preventing any quick delivery to market.

    Advice to Management

    - Stop the business talk, and get back to simplicity: D&B is not that big, and it doesn’t need a complex and onerous infrastructure;
    - Put an end to big, design/planning upfront projects, with pointless meetings, reviews, checkpoints, etc. and lengthy test cycles at the end: adopt a lean, agile approach allowing fast releases, to quickly respond to customer needs and market changes.
