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Technology is outdated and poorly managed.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.

    Pros

    Friendly and hard working employees-which helps as documentation on processes is outdated or nonexistent
    Diversity of cultures
    HR is caring but cannot contol some upper management nonuse of good practices such as performance reviews and rewarding top performing individuals

    Cons

    Furlough instituted,401k matches frozen, raises minimal 2009 into 2010
    Layoffs frequent, include top talent, not based on performance but on
    company focuses on short term financial wins or ebit goals and not on long term system efficiencies
    work computers hard to get repaired and internal system rolled out improperly and archaic old tools - bad form for a company who wants to be known for technology

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    question costa mesa for upper management and primary US support - it contradicts hiring employees in Chile for budget improvements
