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

      Pros

      - Great colleagues. - Historical brand with a previously strong brand awareness - You get to leave at the end of the day.

      Cons

      - Senior management are part of a "boys club" where they prioritise a small number of the sales team that they wish to see succeed. You can be successful through your own work but the fear is that when you are, the deals / opportunities will be given to other members of the team in particular at year end to help them succeed. - Consistent lies around Salary improvements - commission structure got worse year on year....

      Advice to Management

      Be honest about where the business is going with the staff. You have some great employees remaining but they are insecure. Stop the management picking on employees they dont want at the business - it was terrible to watch!

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

      Pros

      The UK business has some great people who are experts in their field and really care about the success of the business. There's been a lot of effort in developing a stronger UK culture in the past couple of years, which has seen the region achieve and beat its targets. The UK senior leadership team is strong and committed to success, but it is held back by the complexity of the global business it has to operate in.

      Cons

      Employees are fatigued by constant changes, budget cuts and redundancies, which are now seen as part of the yearly calendar. The business operates a complex matrix, with large numbers of the UK business reporting to US-based managers who do not understand the local market challenges and opportunities, and are focused on North American priorities. This makes it extremely difficult to get things done and has a significant...

      Advice to Management

      Continue the great work building a strong UK culture, distinct from the North American business.
