    I have been working at Experian as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, excellent pay and benefits. Most of the time, the work is quite interesting.

    Cons

    Too much change over the last year. During the recession there were lots of lay-offs and virtually no positions have been refilled. This has led to burnout amongst too many good people. While the work is rewarding and the people are great, the consistent demand to do more with less is going to drive people to leave now that the job market is better.

    Pros

    in some departments there is better work/life balance in others not so much.

    Cons

    Do not count on the bonus if taking a new position. Management is asking newcomers for input however always turn it down. Company does not invest money in the new software and uses mostly freeware or old outdated versions that not compatible with new versions that is currently on the market.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the new updated software, allocate budget for technical training, be more open to the suggestions that new hires bring with their experience from other companies - it will help you to keep the company on the decent level.

    Pros

    Beggining salary is good for an agent, 40 sick hours are part of the benefits starting on first pay check.
