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

Pros

Cafeteria was nice. Security guards were very friendly and professional.

Cons

Many managers were immature, have no class and not so educated, especially those who have been there for 15+ years.
There were a lot of outsourcing of jobs to other countries.
They lay off people when they need to make their numbers.
They do not develop their employees.

Advice to Management

Complete a real, useful degree and then develop your people.

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

    Pros

    Hard to think of any

    Cons

    Having left Experian, I now remember what it's like to work at a place that appreciates their employees. Experian has 1 BILLION in profit. Hard to think why they feel they need to belittle their employees and grind them and treat them as disposable.

    Advice to Management

    As an old friend of mine taught me, the fish goes bad from the head. Most of the executive managment really needs to be replaced by human beings that care for the people that work at Experian.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent time off, plenty of telework opportunities. If you land in the right area with the right manager there are good opportunities. Aim for Experian Credit or Experian Interactive.

    Cons

    Extremely political. Everything is a secret with this management; even org charts are hard to come by. A lot of good people have been laid off just to make arbitrary profit targets. Above all stay away from Experian Marketing Solutions. They work hard but management can't sell the products they tell them to build and there are plenty of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Quick being so secretive. It's common knowledge you wanted to sell Experian Marketing and couldn't. Deal with the employees honestly and be happy with single-digit growth instead of laying off good people to achieve double digit profit margins.
