    Advice to Management

    Continue with the drive for improvement, take a longer view of success - running with 12month rolling windows encourages short termism

        Neutral Outlook

        I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        D&B has many divisions, it is possible to move from one to another. Co. has a good dreputation. Most people look favorably to your having worked there.

        Cons

        Management weaknesses. Top level executives, and even middle managers spend more time and effort pursuing their own agendas than the company agenda. There is a lot of political infighting. Your future depends on the future of your management team to a large extent.

        Advice to Management

        Upper management needs to set the example. So far, what one gets from upper management is "I have my golden parachute, do you?" The company could use salary and other incentives for non-management salaried employees, who carry the burden of "performance" but do not share the profits like upper management does.

        Pros

        Extremely friendly people, awesome culture, very kind and polite people, willing to work with you, train and guide you and ensure that you succeed while the company. Food in cafe is provided at a subsidized rate which is the best thing. I really enjoy working a lot here. So much learning to do...

        Cons

        New budget is provided every 3 months, so you never really know what's coming up next in your job status. but apart from this there could me more, but I am not yet exposed to it.

        Advice to Management

        Please promote new talent and new people.

        Clearly stated goals and mission statement.

        Advice to Management

        They should emulate the connection that Sara Mathew had with the rank and file employees.

        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        The atmosphere at D&B is friendly. Upper management is slowly coming to understand that the current business model cannot be sustained long-term.

        Cons

        The upper management has be slow to truly embrace the "new economy" where data is a commodity. Most groups do not encourage innovation. The funding model is inflexible.

        Advice to Management

        Stop worrying about placating the shareholders short-term to protect the stock price.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet

        Pros

        Job Flexibility, work from home ability Autonomous work for the most part Average Commute

        Cons

        No professional growth opportunities No mentoring/coaching of employees Low morale workplace Horrible turnover of Global Leadership Team - with the exception of the CEO, practically no one at the highest level, has been with D&B for more than 5 years! The company is 100+ years old!

        Advice to Management

        Understand that Sales only comes from Relationships...learn that you need to be a steward of your customers' needs first, shareholders' pockets 2nd... Get some GLT Bench Strength and tenure...if there is any chance left. Realize that you have competent sales teams, but not competent leadership to guide them.
