I have been working at Experian Data Quality US full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Experian QAS has been the most challenging yet rewarding place I have ever worked at. Before joining their direct Sales force, I thought I knew how to sell. I thought I knew the sales process, how to book meetings, how to negotiate and how to get things done. Thanks to a lot of amazing training sessions and working amongst the best sales people I have ever met, I have grown and developed my sales skills to a more strategic and solution based sale. If you are ready to take your sales career to the next level, Experian QAS is the perfect place for you.

Pros:
- Access to Senior Management – Experian QAS has a true open door policy where at any time during your career the Senior Management team are available to speak with you
- Growth opportunity – This company has grown double digits every year since they have been in the US (over 12 years) with amazing career opportunities in all departments
- Social environment – “Work Hard, Play Hard”, QAS knows how to reward hard working employees
- Product – QAS is well known in the industry and has the best product offering in the data quality market place

Cons

Cons
- Heat – if you can’t take the heat coming from the pressure on your daily responsibilities as a sales individual you should pass on this opportunity
- Challenge – You have to be ready to challenge yourself and sometimes learn what you thought you already knew
- Hours – This is not a 9-5 job, this has been said before, but especially in sales, if you want to blow up your earnings you have to earn it
- High expectations – Whether you are in sales or any other department (Account Management, Professional Services, Product, Marketing, etc…) you have to deliver your results; be ready for it!

    I worked at Experian Data Quality US full-time

    Pros

    - Firsthand exposure to/involvement with all aspects of the company; gained more business knowledge here than with a formal degree
    - Open door policy with senior management; feedback is asked for and taken seriously
    - Consistent support from manager/team/colleagues
     - Ability to make an immediate impact; contributions are rewarded with recognition initiatives
    - Interal Promotion; ability to fast track career (advancement is based on merit, not tenure)
    - Various training/development opportunities
    - Lively, collaborative culture - fun social events; teamwork-based atmosphere

    Cons

    - High expectations & fast-paced environment can mean a significant amount of pressure; extremely stressful environment at times
    - Less experienced management group sometimes translates into inconsistent application of company policies, which may feel unfair to some

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Embrace change and innovation more. If we truly want to embody the entrepreneurial/risk taking spirit of a start up, give people the chance to take calculated leaps and allow them to fail. Solicit feedback/constructive criticism from external hires as soon as they come onboard and still have fresh eyes.
     - Put a more robust training program in place for potential managers so they have a thorough understanding of everything that type of role entails
     - Make the tough but necessary calls on employees who are not a good fit for the company earlier on
    - Keep development and training a TOP priority for all employees

    I worked at Experian Data Quality US full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It's such a demanding environment where if you stick around long enough they'll move you up to middle management where you can break in the newbies and get crap from upper management

    Cons

    - Management offers no real backup or tools to help you do your job better
    - It's a technical software product company where no one knows technology
    - Promotions will be dangled in front of your nose, promises will be made and forgotten when the time comes due
    - Salary is well below industry standard across the board

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hurt for people, employ a full time recruiter, and spend countless hours interviewing a mass of people. Then why do you treat existing employees like crap once they work for you.
