    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet for more than a year

    Pros

    Consistently working towards building a better company for its customers, employees and really cares about the world

    Cons

    Direction changes so quickly that technology could not keep up - the industry wants 100% viability - which data is impossible

    Advice to Management

    Engage all internal resources, youd be surprised by the talent - Women are important too

    Stabilize the transition and communicate the plan.

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

    Pros

    -Pay is competitive, in my area there is lots of opportunity -Certain lines of business are well known in market -DUNS number is a strong competitive advantage (for now) -Some top execs, and a fair amount of new employees, understand the need to evolve and change to be a modern company with leading products. -Work from home and casual dress code -Get to work with customers on some cool projects, involving leading...

    Cons

    -Tons of policies and procedures for every little thing; finance and sales ops rule the roost here -Massive internal resistance to change or any outside the box thinking in middle management and product management. "That's the way we have always done it" is D&B's internal motto. -Lack of strategy for both products and data. Some people have ideas on where to take the strategy but by and large they are just trying...

    Advice to Management

    D&B is in a tough spot. Reading the reviews on Glassdoor and looking at the company's history, it has probably been in a tough spot for 10+ years with similar problems. The company is trying to pivot to be modern, transform the products and data set, and deliver more value to customers. The problem is these changes needed to happen 10+ years ago and now D&B is playing catch up which is a dangerous treadmill to...

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

    Pros

    - Most colleagues are experienced and very good at what they do - Team environment - Above average pay

    Cons

    - Most positions are high stress - Adversarial relationship with customers, taking unethical approaches to new business / retention is not discouraged - Discriminatory decisions by management - Ruthless focused on decreasing headcount irrelevant of accomplishments - Long-term development no longer a priority. - Greater automation in the sales process and delivery cycle means further headcount reductions in the...

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees priority. Senior leadership have clearly made their focus on eliminating headcount, reducing opportunities for growth and development, and enabling a discriminatory environment.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet

    Pros

    Nice tight knit team. Extra activities. It was fun to have to face challenges with a team that would be like a family. Good training opportunities. Nice reward system but it all changed.

    Cons

    The focus of the management changed from the well being of employee to the well being of the money.

    Advice to Management

    Caring about employee gives you more solid results that retain for a longer time. Caring about the results and pushing for it is exhausting for employees and for the company ultimately.
