    Pros

    Benefits are superb, they have them all. Time-off policies are great. Promotions are not bad.

    Cons

    They tend to get top heavy with leadership, and have many lay-offs to balance that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A cut back in leadership would be an improvement.

    The company has strong leadership. It also provides a true work life balance environment and offers fantastic benefits. It is a great place to work.

    This is the best job that I have ever had. For me, it is hard to point our any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue investing into your current employees.

    I have been working at Experian full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good benefits, nice offices, work/life balance - for me it is a great location and convenient to many great places to eat & shop. My overall impression is that upper management truly wants Experian to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    Business verticals not always strategically aligned, but understand they are aware to some degree of this and are working on smoothing it out. Lots and lots of meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the great communication efforts. Probably don't need so many different employee program and engagement initiatives - seems a little over done.

    Former Employee - Marketing Intern in Schaumburg, IL

    I worked at Experian as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company culture is very friendly, and the employees are easy to work with. The intern projects are meaningful and utilized by upper management. There are also many networking opportunities to meet the directors and managers. Employees are treated to many company outings throughout the summer.

    Cons

    At times there was a lack of direction and management. A mentor program would have been very beneficial to me.

    Pros

    Financially stable, well managed, smart leadership, variety of work, good people who understand that employees are people with a life outside of work

    Cons

    There is always something new going on and a lot of change always occuring. Some people don't like change, but those of us who do enjoy the new challenges and opportunities that it brings.
