    I have been working at Experian full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent package, great extra's, that's the least of my pro's, the atmosphere and general supportive culture is outstanding. Great place to work. The interview and the process that followed was excellent.

    Cons

    The overall recruitment process was excellent, however a little slow, the upside is that I was kept informed all the way through.

    I have been working at Experian full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    People - feels like you're working with like minded adults!
    Pay - if you work hard then there is ample opportunity for extra income and advancement
    Travel - plenty of opportunity to travel if in the right role
    Trust - My experience is that employees are given a high level of autonomy

    Cons

    American Centric - sometimes it feels as if the U.S. comes first
    Letting good staff go - too many talented people in lower positions have been let go in cost cutting exercises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what most management should do, be more: accountable; approachable; reflexive; employee focused; adaptable. Team building should feature more, as should subsidisation for staff events (nights out etc).

    Former Employee - Finance Intern in Costa Mesa, CA

    I worked at Experian as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you take the initiative, there are always opportunities for recognition. You can take on high profile projects and work with members outside your functional group. The team environment is friendly and nurturing, and management is open and receptive.

    Cons

    There are few opportunities for career growth within the company. Although they do hire internally, you're more likely to expand within your given role rather than move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would have been interesting to have more cross-functional team experiences to increase employee ownership of company (versus functional) goals and objectives.

    Pros

    Interesting projects coming in with more of a consulting angle. Collaborative work environment is great when you are starting out.

    Cons

    Expect potentially long hours in kind of an unexpected manner. Project deadlines dictate whether or not you can maintain a flexible schedule.

    Former Employee - Sales in Schaumburg, IL

    I worked at Experian full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company. Great location. Professional staff. Excellent benefits. There is room for moving up in the company, just have to kiss the right tush.

    Cons

    Revolving door. Job security can be an issue, even for great employees. Culture is a bit loopy at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the hire/lay off cycle. It creates paranoia among employees and leads to decreased productivity. Have some faith in your employees and invest in them.
