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

Pros

- in the main people are friendly although not the smartest or hardest working - work life balance is typically OK but reflected in poor pay and benefits

Cons

- pay is poor and below market rate for most roles except sales and senior management - poor talent retention and nurturing at junior level - company burdened by process and approvals - many missed opportunities due to slow decision making by committee - the company is full of people who get paid well and do nothing because they are friends with the right people. Removing the deadwood would help with morale of many

Advice to Management

- focus on developing talent within - pay to retain best junior staff (all the best are leaving within 2/3 years) - greater scrutiny of senior exec expenses (some are outrageous) - remove deadwood employees that are expensive and add zero value. Particularly in the central corporate function - your idea of bonus scheme is a joke, even for the global corporate teams

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

    Pros

    Good HR benefits, thirteenth salary, annual bonus (when company results are as good as expected), technical challenges at work are very common, diversity is respected, sometimes you can telecommute, mostly nice people.

    Cons

    Management is not doing good about employee career development. Due to last year results were not as expected, there was no bonus this year. In addition, several positions were lost and workload is highly increased for the remaining employees. Morals are low right now.

    Advice to Management

    Try to plan on a long term basis and not only for the current Fiscal Year or even for each Quarter! Also you have to start taking more seriously about your employees' development. How do you expect to reach your goals with reduced teams and low morals employees overwhelmed with heavy workload?
