    Slow moving organisation which struggles to react to market change, very little career progression in uk results in stagnant workforce,

    Advice to Management

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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than 5 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.

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.

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than 5 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.
