Fair but boring place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Experian full-time

ProsExperian has established and matured market a.k.a cash cow. Means people don't get pushed too much about making profits -compare to the companies losing $- as well as has guaranteed work/life balance.

Outsourcing happens in massive scale but candidates selection process seems fair enough. Tho it attracted a lot of negative feedback here in Glassdoor.

Not much politics involved in review process, which is fairly rare in type of company. (Long running with cash cow but unable to expand anymore for decades.)

ConsManagement prefer acquire companies rather than invest money for internal R&D etc just like any other company these days.

However, since the cash for acquisition is coming from outsourcing and as a lot of former employees complaining about not highly regarding 'loyalty', it's probably not a good place for long term career.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease don't be so bureaucratic. I mean, 1-5 scale performance assessment is fine but the gaps between them? Well.. considering only <10% people get 5 stars, that doesn't really make any distinction for mega contributors and many people leave the company because of it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Has potential to be great, let down by constant cost slashing and Senior Managers' performance & attitudes
