I have been working at Experian

Pros

Flexible
Family Oriented in understanding your needs
Pay is not so bad
Benefits are fair
People are nice and friendly

Cons

Work work work work work
VERY fast pace
You kind of have to find your "way" on developing and your goals unless you have a GREAT manager to help lead you

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure that everyone that is responsible for team members are setting goals and establishing a development plan for team member to grow. Give praise by doing the simple things...personal email, note, etc....

    Used to be a good place to work - Incompetent Senior Management now.

    I worked at Experian

    Pros

    Used to be a decent place to work but in the last several years they have been cutting costs by offshoring and such. Oddly enough, executive compensation continues to rise while all other areas of the business are cuttting costs.

    Cons

    Your job is never safe from being offshored (unless you are senior management).
    Competence is not recognized or rewarded.
    Management is completely clueless.
    Technology is outdated and poorly managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit offshoring jobs. Most of the technical people I know that are still at Experian are looking to jump ship as soon as they can find a job elsewhere.

    Pros

    Large company with decent benefits. Very nice campus.

    Cons

    Company is outsourcing and offshoreing many jobs. They also want to move as many IT positions from Costa Mesa to Texas. No job is safe at this company. Company has also gone through many lay offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management keeps saying they appreciate and care for the employees, but their actions do not back that up. If you advertise it, then follow through.
