Pros

Great first job out of college, everyone is young, office is laid back and casual, reasonable hours if you are good at time management, overtime for lower level employees, fun social events and free food. Good experience working with clients. Good amount of vacation days and you can sometimes work from home.

Cons

The account manager and senior account manager jobs can feel like monkey work, it is a lot of cut pasting. Promotions are based on who shmoozes the best and not on who is actually knowledgeable. There are competent people who never get promoted and completely incompetent people who never get fired.

Advice to Management

Stop outsourcing everything to other countries and start promoting internally. Noone likes to see outsiders take the promotion that they should be up for without any explanation as to why.

    I worked at Experian Marketing Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good and talented people within Tech

    Cons

    Culture of blame from the business
    New Tech Sr. Management keeps cycling through and trying the exact same things that didn't work the last time
    Core platform developed in Perl and decision made to stay on outdated original platform with tons of technical debt making it impossible to develop anything quickly
    Hard to hire Perl developers since there aren't that many

    Advice to Management

    Too late, they already messed everything up and made poor decision several years ago.
