    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.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to develop
    Actively encouraged to progress, particularly if you drive yourself forward
    Opportunity for global mobility
    Great co-workers
    Good working culture
    BUPA
    Opportunity to invest in share save scheme

    Cons

    Lots of silo'd business units
    Can be difficult to find out who you need to speak with unless you have a good network of contacts
    Different divisions working separately as opposed to one seamless united front, unless the client is a strategic client

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure opportunity to learn about all aspects of the business is actively encouraged
    Maybe strip out some of the many layers in some of the business units
    Give some people job titles that accurately reflect what they do
