Pros

There are a lot of great people working there. A lot of people are very driven to do their jobs well, and they really care about the company. It's great to work with people like that.

Cons

- Pay is all over the place. Some people are paid way too much, others way too little.
- Senior leadership has no clear vision/strategy. Projects will be greenlit with little to no research and end up getting scrapped after conversions tank.
- Unable to retain talent. Attrition is extremely high, and all the best people leave behind mediocre talent that can barely to their jobs.
- Bad work/life balance. Employees are pushed to work insane amounts of overtime to hit unrealistic deadlines set by oblivious upper management.
- Senior leadership only cares about the present, not the future. Antiquated technology makes day to day maintenance a huge headache, but senior leadership is not willing to invest time and money to fix the problem because it will not result in immediate $$$.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees better. Stop hiring cheap, mediocre talent. Pay the great employees enough so that they don't leave. Think about updating the tech used so that it will actually work in the far future.

    This company is top heavy, with little leadership.

    Pros

    Decent salary & bonuses if you can survive the layoffs and environment.

    Cons

    Horrible work environment, quarterly layoffs to achieve financial "goals". Red tape abounds, unhappy people all through the company - no wonder considering the environment. I'm only staying for the inevitable severance package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop traveling all over the country with your "world tour" telling employees to keep costs down. Start by slashing you're own travel, cause I bet you aren't staying at motel6, eating McDonald's and taking cabs.

    I worked at Experian Americas full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to retire, very competitive pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    Management hiding behind "processes" to kill productivity. Since they are essentially have a monopoly (yes I know there are two other bureaus), they easily get away with total lack of innovation. Obsolete tools, technology use and automation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and realize if you don't forward and change eventually you'll be left behind and die off.
