    Great Office

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lincoln, NE

    Prosgreat sense of family here in Lincoln, my team is fantastic to work with and it shows based on the tenure of our group. We tend to hire only the best and brightest folks to work here and it makes getting things done much easier. Local management is great here and do the best job I think they can at getting the point across with respect to communications about the company at large.

    Consnot much here in Lincoln...perhaps better coffee :) At times it would be nice to have more contact with other leaders in other locations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership and work environment is what you make it. Don't wait for corporate policies and changes to happen in order to change environment...we all can share in that and make Experian a great place to be.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I made a mistake 8 years ago when I decided to work for Experian

    Channel Executive - Consumer Review Services (Current Employee) Allen, TX

    ProsAverage benefits including healthcare, 401k, company car. Lots of travel which provides airmile benefits. Channel Executives are superior to the management.

    ConsInferior management. My VP can hardly work a computer! Constantly reorganizing and getting rid of valuable people (expecially those with tenure). I am so disappointed. I was hired by the President of Credit Services and didn't realize that he brought all of his banking cronies on board. Totally destroyed what was once a great company. The stress is so bad that it affects my day to day activities. Senior management profiles and targets groups of people for termination.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExperian is not a bank so stop trying to run it like one. People like me should be promoted to help turn this abyss around.

    Good people to work with but tends to be a sweat shop due to lack of planning by local management.

    Business Analyst (Former Employee) Costa Mesa, CA

    ProsSenior Management motivated workers well. Nice location and work environment. Salaries seemed competitive. Management works magic to meet number to get bonuses out to workers.

    ConsMandatory furlows and vacation usage when numbers are weak. Local management seems to have been placed based on favoritism lowering its quality. Silo'd work groups limited company wide standards for any type of job process consistency.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImplement processes to promote quality managers to ensure work is smooth and efficient.

    ConsNo strategic vision for that markets group.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire and retain good people.
