Pros

great employees. lots of young intelligent people. the average age is prbably under 30 years old. there is a strong social scene within the company and its easy to make friends.
from the sales side you gt to control the whole sales cycle and managers are very collaborative with strategy.

Cons

long working hours. its a 730 start till about 6pm. its a hard sell with plenty of cold calling and lots of kpis.

The base salary is not the highest but the commissions are uncapped so earnings have the potential to be high.

there is a pretty high churn rate although this is always getting better

Advice to Management

the management is doing a strong job.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Global company with many acquisitions over the past few years that open up other career choices. Potential to become a worldclass company given the data assets and analytical capabilities. Understands the need to expand into emerging markets as traditional revenue streams level off in mature markets. Many offices geographically to work from, flexible tele-commuting options. Few competitors could match what Experian has to the potential offer.

    Cons

    Internal battles that take focus off the competition. Lack of investing in new product development and radical R&D that could help enter new markets and revenue streams. Some system limitations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in upgrading talent, retaining the best people, promoting internally, and invest in new product development that will help Experian be less tied to the banking industry.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good name on the resume. Good Exposure to the Credit/Marketing industry.

    Cons

    Layoffs every year or so. Management does many knee jerk decision without thinking long term future. You wont survive if you don't know the right people in Experian

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the Polities. Stop this CM vs SCH polities. Think ahead before making decisions and once you make a decision stick with it.
