    Pros

    Benefits (paid time off, employee leave, health insurance) are pretty good.
    You can learn a lot that is applicable in future positions (at least within the marketing industry).

    Cons

    Layoffs happen with frightening regularity.
    Company is very top-heavy, upper management is ineffectual and unfocused.
    Middle management is more of the same.
    Pay freezes, 401K freezes, and forced time off/furloughs are the norm lately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Read those employee surveys and then act on them. When you make bad decisions, admit them and learn from them.

    I have been working at Experian

    Pros

    At the personal level, Experian hires great, great people to work with. Nice, fast-paced work environment, not boring at all. Good benefits, including above average vacation time.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of politicking. Company is so big, everyone is expected to specialize, not real below average opportunities to learn things outside of your specialty. No clear leadership in management - no one capable of stepping up and providing direction for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the politics already and do what's best of the company.
