No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Experian full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Generous time off, compensation seems appropriate, good people to work with, trying to improve their work tool functionality and trying to instill corporate values

Cons

To get promoted, you have to get people to like you, regardless of lack of talent. Very clicky groups. Real-time coaching isn't applied when needed to help others move up.

Advice to Management

Global programs are set up to fail under regional or heavily matrixed management. Cut the bureacracy and allow staff more authority to get jobs done.

    "Great group of folks that try to have a 'family' feel. It gets overshadowed by the good ol' boy network."

    Pros

    Good products and supportive peers.

    Cons

    Company has not given as much support to the Carmel location as they should. That is changing, however,

    Advice to Management

    Become more inclusive instead of exclusive.

    Pros

    Senior leadership mostly smart and credible, but Don Robert has never run anything this large, everything he does is for the first time and it has been that way for years. With the death of CFO Paul Brooks, the thought leadership and mangement of the company is weakened. Senior HR leader stayed in place, retired on the job, seemed to lack the will to change anything. Global HR leader good at managing up, that's about it. Chris Callero likeable, intuitive, smart, but not well educated or sophisticated in ways a global COO typically is. Fast pace environment is stimulating. Work environment is flexible, accomodating lifestyles.

    Cons

    Dated technology. Poor tools. Lower pay than market, often... "Know it, and don't care." Little/no opportunity for movement, except in pockets (finance dept does it well). Despite knowing movement develops people, EXPN doesn't do it, and not much promotion from within. Not thoughtful about senior leader selection, e.g. Dorival. No clear value proposition for employees. Writing it for years now, nothing of particular distinction. Strategy unclear. Employees always talk about it in global people survey.

    Advice to Management

    I find it startling to think a $5b company can't discuss it's values with employees.
