Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Experian Americas full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible hours and work-from-home policy.

Cons

Little job satisfaction. No training on poorly documented internal software. Constant threat of being laid off. Overly competitive environment resulting in minimal sharing of information between team members. Frequent use of large email distribution groups to disparage team members for even the slightest mistakes. The longer you work there and the more valuable you become to the company, the more tolerant management is of the above-referenced behaviors. My best advice to anyone considering a software developer position at Experian: Keep looking.

Advice to Management

Do not just dismiss any kind of constructive criticism because it is coming from an employee who is not in a managerial role. Try showing some respect and compassion to those who have made a lot of sacrifices for the company and are being let go for cheaper alternatives.

    Embrace the hiring of up-and-comers and those with smaller company experience with potential to learn the complexities of a large organization.
