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

Pros

The company gives good bonus if the yearly goals are fulfilled; the team-mates are usually fine, and they are willing to teach you.

Cons

The managers and Directors think "the client" is God: the employees must fulfill whatever they want at whenever time they want, in a frame time defined by the clients. There is no family time.

Advice to Management

Employees are not machines!!!!!!!!!

    I worked at Experian full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, very hard-working with good intentions. Large company offers opportunity to move laterally. Pleasant work environment with reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    There is a lack of focus as the company is trying to master too many things in too many markets. Individual executives typically have their own agenda and rarely work together for the greater good. Lots of turnover at the mid-management level. Experian wants to be viewed as innovative but is locked into short-term thinking and earnings pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Pick no more than 3 big goals and commit to them. Don't short-change opportunities by saying you support them but then refusing to allocate sufficient resources to be successful.
