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

    Pros

    Used to be a good company with many loyal employees worked 20+, 30+ years.

    Cons

    Constant Upper Management changes, layoff happens every 6 months or so to cut cost, employee lack job security, nowhere/department is safe now. Job moved out of US (offshore) to cut cost. No space to grow, no budget for training, you were expected to work 50-60 hours a week, any regular 40 hours a week might be questioned by your upper manager. Heavy mid level managements doing nothing other than collecting status report.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to retain good people. Too many mid level managements, trim down unnecessary mangers and leaders to save cost is better than let good employees go.

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

    Pros

    Corporate culture is nice. They try to keep their employees happy with various perks like monthly company sponsored happy hours, cash awards for work well done, birthday/anniversary notifications/gifts, etc. Senior management sends out annual company wide surveys & actually takes the responses seriously. The company started on the whole hackday trend, which is nice, although they didn't seem to capitalize on many of the great ideas.

    Cons

    It's a Perl shop. For software developers, there's not a lot of cutting edge technology, our software pretty much sucks in the email marketing realm, there's not strong leadership, there's not a clearly defined path for career growth, we seriously risk falling behind in the email market (our strong suit is customer service, not software!). People are leaving in droves & management is having a very difficult time with retention at this point.
