    Great people, business is successfully transforming to digital media

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Schaumburg, IL

    ProsThe Targeting group has the most talented individuals, generally, of any in EMS. Very high employee engagement scores, best in class client satisfaction results. Team culture of hard work and fun.

    ConsBroad, complex product portfolio; sometimes hard to stay focused given multiple priorities. Intense drive for results in recent years means that you have to perform at a very high level in sales roles, and there has therefore been higher turnover in sales.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExperian's board should double down on further investment in this business, the growth potential is very strong.

    Typical Corporate America, really

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFor me, work-life balance is okay, no complaints. There are a lot of opportunities and the location is good.

    ConsWatch out for politics, really. Contractors are allowed to work from home and a very flexible schedule, while permanent employees are not, which is unfair. While there are a lot of opportunities, it's still difficult to move from one department to another and you get pigeon-holed quickly.

    Strong organization with talented people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Costa Mesa, CA

    ProsVery talented group of employees that work very hard and are dedicated to the
    growth and overall reputation of the company. People truly care about eachother. Strong brand and company culture

    ConsExperian is a very complex organization and very matrixed which makes it difficult to work with certain business lines.
