    I worked at Experian full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Location is close to home. Salaries are pretty good. Many long-time employees are wonderful co-workers with great knowledge and provide great service. Occasional telecommuting allowed by some managers, but not all.

    Cons

    Terrible management at all levels! Company goals are all very short-term. They only care about cost-cutting with no concern for quality or retaining knowledgeable, valuable employees. Example: in IT, approximately 80-90 percent of very experienced and knowledgeable staff were laid off and replaced with less experienced workers with lower salaries. Many jobs were shifted to other countries or states.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start thinking long-term. Listen to employees who know the business and their jobs when making decisions. Stop lying to employees. Improve the technology at what should be a high-tech company.

    I worked at Experian full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are other divisions to work for that are likely better managed than the Costa Mesa office.

    Cons

    The most political work environment I've ever worked in. Constant change, lack of focus and no sign of teamwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire capable Sr. Managers that are real leaders. Pay attention to the customer and build products that cater to their needs.
