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

    Pros

    Loads of autonomy. Loads of opportunity to travel internationally (I visited Marlow, London, Rotterdam, New Jersey, Austin, Pennsylvania, Malibu, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Chennai and more in my 5.5 years at the company. You get to work with great people all over the world.

    Cons

    Because it is such an old company, sometimes it feels like there are two many processes and obstacles to getting things done. Its a very risk averse company, so to get things done you have to be ready to hussle.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people to get stuff done, too many processes focused on lowering risk instead of delivering customer value.

    I worked at Dun & Bradstreet full-time

    Pros

    1. People - some of the most genuinely nice people I have ever worked with 2. Culture - a lot of time and effort is invested to constantly improve the culture from good to better 3. Tech Stack - surprisingly modern for such an established Content / Tech company

    Cons

    Every company going through modernisation and transformation has levels of change and evolution that can be unsettling to some staff. Such is life these days. Nothing out of the ordinary at D&B but just be aware that transformation does entail ongoing change :)

    Advice to Management

    Culture can be a long term strategic asset - takes effort to build but easy to lose - protect it throughout the transformations.
