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

    Pros

    A few of pros are there: - Some projects are interesting and challenging. - WLB exists up to some point - Location at Malibu

    Cons

    Tough to keep a balance in order not to go deep into details or personals and be objective at the same time. 1. Let's start within office at Malibu - lack of furniture, basic equipment & hardware, office itself is very modest. 2. Actual work: A lot of technical debt, nobody takes care about quality or future of projects. Five managers for 2-3 workers. Nobody interested in actual results, mostly focus is...

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hardly any weeks worked above 40 hours, great PTO policy, great product and good potential if CEO has the right vision. Good opportunities for training, mostly paid for.

    Cons

    People stuck in this company for decades are so far behind both technically and ethically. Many people in "leader" positions that have no business leading a team; very unprofessional and borderline in violation of HR rules related to harassment and bullying in the workplace. This makes for a very toxic work environment, which might be torpedoing DNB's efforts to attract fresh blood and talent.

    Advice to Management

    Please remove negative people from leadership positions. Retrain them and send them to classes on harassment in the workplace, and anger management, so that they can learn to treat other colleagues with respect and professionalism.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    Don't have to commute to the city

    Cons

    When our company was acquired by D&B a few years ago, they slashed benefits, reduced a lot of nice things we had, and, most importantly, really messed up with some people's information. Being misinformed by D&B and not given proper paperwork when I was an employee has led me to a nightmare of dealing with my taxes from that year. The company doesn't even care. Oh, and they pay software engineers ~30-40k...

    I have been working at Dun & Bradstreet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits are very good.

    Cons

    The company lacks a clear technical direction. It is very slow to adjust. Getting data or services from other parts of the company are near impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Management is aware of most of the issues. The changes that are needed are extremely difficult to make.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Good place to learn the ropes, the work is easy and you can get some good experience is different projects.

    Cons

    Upper management is very confused and don't have a good vision. They want to transform into a good futuristic company but don't spend money on hiring good talent or retaining them. People don't take risks and hence the company is lacking in creativity and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time and effort in hiring good candidates and retaining them. Take risks and be more creative and innovative.

    Pros

    - Good location and few good people (I feel for them)

    Cons

    - Slow pace of work with a lot of micromanagement - With the change of leadership, few new leaders are quite racist and practice sexism - No value for the quality of work, just favoritism practiced - There are a couple of employees who talk regularly in a very inappropriate way and make sexist remarks, but who to complain as you keep hearing that this is our culture or that is that person for you - Leaders...

    Advice to Management

    Get back the old leadership and surround yourselves with good, smart, hardworking people that made this Malibu division successful. Right now, it looks like a lost cause as you have lost your best people in the last 3 years and have replaced them by people who were left but didn't deserve
