Fast-paced, team-oriented, decent pay, you'll never get promoted

I have been working at Experian Marketing Services full-time for more than a year

Pros

Plenty of opportunity to learn new things. The corporate culture is very team-oriented, everyone pulls their own weight (which is very hard to come by) and everyone is willing to help out when a coworker needs it.

Cons

Sometimes demanding clients and a corporate culture of doing EVERYTHING the client wants, no matter how unreasonable. The company is not doing so well financially right now, so raises and promotions are much harder to come by.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop bringing in mid-level managers from outside. The Account Manager and Senior Account Manager roles are much different from the Client Relationship Manager, Client Partner and Associate Director roles. When someone is hired in as a CP or AD, they have no idea what the work flow of their AMs and SAMs looks like. They make promises to clients that the AMs and SAMs have to carry out, without understanding what that means to their junior-level employees.

Second - stop harping on how broke the company is. It is very clear that no one is going to get a raise, a promotion, or a full bonus. This is terrible for morale.

    I worked at Experian Marketing Services full-time

    Pros

    Great first job out of college, everyone is young, office is laid back and casual, reasonable hours if you are good at time management, overtime for lower level employees, fun social events and free food. Good experience working with clients. Good amount of vacation days and you can sometimes work from home.

    Cons

    The account manager and senior account manager jobs can feel like monkey work, it is a lot of cut pasting. Promotions are based on who shmoozes the best and not on who is actually knowledgeable. There are competent people who never get promoted and completely incompetent people who never get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop outsourcing everything to other countries and start promoting internally. Noone likes to see outsiders take the promotion that they should be up for without any explanation as to why.
