Current Employee - Consumer Associate II in Allen, TX
Current Employee - Consumer Associate II in Allen, TX

I have been working at Experian full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits and time off. The building is clean. There is a good level of interaction and cohesiveness between your coworkers at your same level. For me the commute is easy.

Cons

Lack of room for growth. Poor judges of talent. Cannot see the forest through the trees management. Group think atmosphere. Qualitative and quantitative expectations not based on real world scenarios and situtations. It feels as if team leads and supervisors look down on those the manage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your eyes and look in the mirror. Listen to employees instead of becoming defensive. Stop being dishonest with employees.

    Former Employee - IT Group in Schaumburg, IL

    I worked at Experian (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If your ingrained in the group you can get away with doing very very little, and with no career skill advancement on your part. If your lucky, you can get a very good paycheck for doing nothing, and not even showing up to work. Heck get an IT management position and not even know what SDLC stands for. Or be a project manager and never have seen MS Project in your life.

    Cons

    Too many overpaid - underskilled staff sitting on their behinds. First level management protects their friends to protect their jobs. Front line management does not posses the knowledge or skill sets to understand the requests or requirements being presented, they are to rock the boat. Far too many uneducated and underskilled staff that have been protected for years and now that the real world has come knocking on their door, they are scared and complaining, Where else can you have a job for 10 plus years in IT without a degree, no certifications, no skill set improvement? Where else can you complain that you cant work from home most of the week? Where else can you come to work past nine, take a two hour lunch, (two hours because besides lunch I have to exercise or play volleyball) and leave before five pm. Most of the older employees act as if it is a high school clich.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the dead wood sitting there in Schaumburg, you can remove half the IT group and would not see a difference - especially with the senior members. Stop calling people what they are not, a customer service representative is not a project manager, a solutions arch is not some coder who has managed to sit in the same chair for 15 years. A business analyst is not someone who just happens to have worked with the same workflow for 20 years but has not other knowledge or experience. You have a bunch of overpaid cry babies who need a dose of reality
