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

    Pros

    It can be a great place to work depending on the functional area, department or business unit. Vacation package and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    company culture is inconsistent across the board. Promotions sometimes appear to be based on likeability versus merit. Company management can be clique 'ish.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving company culture. Hire based on merit and less cronyism

    Pros

    Relatively good benefits. Flexible work from home policy.

    Cons

    Company does not seem to value employee contributions. No job security. Can be laid off with virtually no notice, regardless of prior performance reviews. Unrealistic project deadlines driven purely by marketing staff with little regard to detailed estimates.

    Pros

    Good company, good benefits. If you enjoy working with large data sets and advanced technologies, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Disorganized, needs vision. Often switching priorities and chasing the shiny object (or sale) of the week. Sales seem to lead all projects, regardless of feasibility.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    It is overall a fun atmosphere to work in most days. Some people you should just stay away from lol.

    Cons

    When it gets busy it is almost like there's no slowing down in sight. They may also cut your lunch depending on the team you end up on.

    Advice to Management

    There are a select few of managers how are genuinely helpful. Supervisor and team leads not so much.

    Top-notch employees - you really grow from being surrounded by so many talented and intelligent people

    Pros

    Great team and benefits. Managers are hard working and provide good feedback. Really really like the program of hiring consultants for long term employment.

    Cons

    No remote work is allowed since going back about 1 or 2 years due to un productivity from a few bad apples that were taking advantage of the existing system.
