I worked at Experian full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Senior leadership mostly smart and credible, but Don Robert has never run anything this large, everything he does is for the first time and it has been that way for years. With the death of CFO Paul Brooks, the thought leadership and mangement of the company is weakened. Senior HR leader stayed in place, retired on the job, seemed to lack the will to change anything. Global HR leader good at managing up, that's about it. Chris Callero likeable, intuitive, smart, but not well educated or sophisticated in ways a global COO typically is. Fast pace environment is stimulating. Work environment is flexible, accomodating lifestyles.

Cons

Dated technology. Poor tools. Lower pay than market, often... "Know it, and don't care." Little/no opportunity for movement, except in pockets (finance dept does it well). Despite knowing movement develops people, EXPN doesn't do it, and not much promotion from within. Not thoughtful about senior leader selection, e.g. Dorival. No clear value proposition for employees. Writing it for years now, nothing of particular distinction. Strategy unclear. Employees always talk about it in global people survey.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I find it startling to think a $5b company can't discuss it's values with employees.

    I have been working at Experian

    Pros

    benefits are pretty good
    bonus seems to be a regular thing

    Cons

    unrealistic schedules for projects are the norm
    every 3 – 6 months management changes there outlook
    layoffs seem to be a common tool

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pick a direction and stick with it, if it doesn't work out let the people go that made the bad choices rather than the people being told what direction to go

    Pros

    Microsoft Shop, web technology generates 100% revenue so it is important. However, the technical people that deliver the technology are not treated well.

    Cons

    Poor IT Management with poor ethics. Marketing and product 'managers' are underqualified
