    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    Recognized name in the industry gives you credibility and there are a lot of good people that work here.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs give you zero job security. They've laid off about 300 people in the last few months so this is not a stable place to work.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working off of a foundation of the best commercial databases available. Very experienced, knowledgeable team in many cases.

    Cons

    New management has turned up the heat in an attempt to drive new revenue, without understanding and removing all of the obstacles that have always made it difficult for the sales team to acquire new business. They reorged the field in a way that was ill-conceived and expensive, and then they backtracked away from the reorg eight months later without admitting that it was a mistake or communicating the new strategy. When I left, the sales team was pretty shell shocked by the recent layoffs due in large part to what seemed like a rather random approach to who was let go. I only have knowledge of a small part of the organization as a whole, but attrition in the group I was with was greater than 100% in the three years I was there.

    "Colossal mismanagement is destroying a once-proud industry giant"

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people and the potential. With proper management and implementation of an operational business model that moves away from a culture of checklists and spreadsheets, D&B could be great once again. It has a deep reservoir of smart, passionate and creative people, but they are steadily leaving or being forced out of the company with broken spirits.

    Cons

    Senior management's 'vision' (if there really is one) is not supported by the actual resources D&B has at hand, and priorities are unclear or unrealistic. Issue #1 is that D&B's raw data quality has steady declined over the past 15 years, and the quality gap between D&B and it's competitors has shrunk to nearly zero, yet D&B keeps trying to sell hamburger at steak prices. Fix the data and develop products that the customer market needs, vs. what back office product designers think would be "fun to build". D&B is in terrible denial about the quality and value of its offerings to the market, and senior management has completely failed to take advantage of its greatest source for insight and market information - its field sales staff.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Quality team members across many groups. Easy to shut down for the day once you leave the building. The stress comes home but the work doesn't.

    Cons

    Mass layoffs in small segments to avoid press. New hostile working spaces with a "big brother is watching" policy. Flexible working schedules - gone. Remote workers - gone. Sense of pride in your work and who you work for - gone. Should be a for sale sign in front of the building any day now since every group is now a silo and can be sold off as parts.

    Pros

    Recognized name, everyone in the business world knows D&B and will take your call. The compensation used to be very lucrative before greedy leadership stepped in.

    Cons

    The new leadership team has shaken the company up, and overnight they let go of several veteran employees. Many had been with the company 20+ years and knew the business inside and out. They have continued two more rounds of layoffs leaving behind a lot of uncertainty and a damaged culture with very low morale.
