    I worked at Experian Americas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I had good work-life balance. That was honestly the reason I stayed as long as I did but in the end, it wasn't nearly enough.

    Cons

    Swimming in mediocrity, terrible talent brand, don't care about employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Experian was profitable in 2013, but didn't hit their overly aggressive targets, so they screwed people out of bonuses, but top performers were still supposed to get something. They have a written policy that if you are still employed at end of fiscal year (April 1), you will get your bonus. They did not honor that this year, even though it was a written policy. If you left after April 1, they just screwed you out of it. No letter, nothing. It's a class action suit waiting to happen. And this is one of many examples of how little they care about their employees.

    I have been working at Experian Americas full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Targeting group has the most talented individuals, generally, of any in EMS. Very high employee engagement scores, best in class client satisfaction results. Team culture of hard work and fun.

    Cons

    Broad, complex product portfolio; sometimes hard to stay focused given multiple priorities. Intense drive for results in recent years means that you have to perform at a very high level in sales roles, and there has therefore been higher turnover in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Experian's board should double down on further investment in this business, the growth potential is very strong.

    They allow you to grow within your position and also try new things. I have had the opportunity to implement new procedures that are currently in place.

    Cons

    There is nothing about this company, management or my current position that is unsatisfactory except the fact that my hours went to part-time again

    Pros

    For me, work-life balance is okay, no complaints. There are a lot of opportunities and the location is good.

    Cons

    Watch out for politics, really. Contractors are allowed to work from home and a very flexible schedule, while permanent employees are not, which is unfair. While there are a lot of opportunities, it's still difficult to move from one department to another and you get pigeon-holed quickly.
