Great place to start working; bad place to stay working.

Pros

The people are great, the product is helpful to society at large, the hours are reasonable and the offices are clean and nice. I loved all the people I worked with their interesting, intelligent and have their priorities in order.

Cons

The salary is LOW especially compared to similar positions in the same building/neighborhood/city. If you're looking to make a decent salary look elsewhere. The management doesn't understand why they have such high turn over and it really is just as simple as they don't pay people what they're worth. If they would raise the salaries to market rates and provide more room for professional development PriceGrabber would be right up there with Google as an ideal place to work but they never will because the corporate culture of Experian won't allow it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your good people to stay! Listen to your employees. Let people be innovative!

    Pros

    The people are amazing here. it's like one big family. mostly young 20-30 year olds. There is also free (cold) breakfast, ping pong, pool table, foozeball, 60" TV, library and Wii room. Great vacation time, although skimped on the sick leave. Good medical benefits and 401k etc. in my experience, management cares about you. I've seen teams where this isn't the case, but my team is excellent and i'm sad to leave them.

    Cons

    It's a very flat company. There are 3 steps between me and the head of the company. And a lot of people have been here for 6+ years and have no intention of leaving, so moving up to management can be a challenge for the pure fact that there are no open positions. It's fairly easy to move around from team to team in linear moves, which is great for learning opportunities and building experience, but upward movement cant be a challenge. Also, the location use to be in Westwood, but now is in Ladera Heights bordering Inglewood. Not many lunch or happy hour options near by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for key talent, and make sure you provide learning opportunities and a chance for career advancement.
