I have been working at Experian full-time (less than a year)

Pros

-Good 401(K) plan (matches up to 4%)
-Pretty good benefits and competitive pay
-Professional development and training
-Huge company and many different career opportunities
-Lots of longevity here. A lot of people have been here over 35+years!

Cons

-Not enough work-life balance or work from home opportunities (they frown on it, it seems)
-Very good-ol' boys mentality here. A bunch or people making a few people lots of money
-Technology for employees to work with is pretty old stuff. They recently upgraded everyone to Win7, and Windows 8 has already been out.
-I'm not on these teams, but it sounds like a lot of lay-offs occur here when you're in Sales or Business type positions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For these surveys you make us take, please don't misinterpret the meanings. When the people said better career development opportunities, they did not mean they wanted more forms to fill out.

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

    Pros

    Established client base, a lot of years managing client data.

    Cons

    Challenge being able to sell solutions into existing client base, no solid direction on company goals, and unrealistic view on time it takes to execute a contract

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    develop a plan that reaches all levels of the organization. Have a real vision and do a better job of recognizing people's skills and talents. Less talk, more action.

    I have been working at Experian full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible work hours and work-from-home policies.

    Cons

    No job satisfaction.
    No training.
    No respect for personal time during evenings, weekends, and holidays.
    Constant threat of being laid off, resulting in overly competitive, uncooperative co-workers.
    Common practice of using large email distribution lists when bickering back and forth.
    Management prefers multi-tasking over listening, until something goes terribly wrong.
    Very little, if any, opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and listen to their concerns, especially those who are willing to make sacrifices on your behalf.
