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

Pros

-Truly open door policy with management
-Potential to create your own role (if business benefit can be proven)
-Focus on personal and professional development
-Collaborative and fun atmosphere
-Management and senior management have high expectations of all employees and are committed to having those expectations met

Cons

-Pay is fair (could be slightly higher)
-Long hours

Advice to Management

Keep thinking of innovative ways to keep our company moving forward. Saas (Software as a Service) is no longer new and cutting edge. We need to keep pushing the boundaries so that we do not become eclipsed by competitors or new challengers in the market (think of Google's capabilities) PS the Manager of Customer Experience may be one of your most valuable assets.

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

    Pros

    work/life balance, good hours, lots of office perks (bagels, fruits, cheap vending machines), good company perks (gym membership, discounted tickets, etc), friendly and relaxed environment-- a great place to start your career

    Cons

    the company is in way over its head due to restructuring. lots of layoffs and senior management pursuing other opportunities because growth has stunted many employees. company is more concerned with overhauling its workforce and there is no employee loyalty. a lot of mismanagement in the tech and dev departments. too many secrets between the senior leadership teams and subordinate teams regarding company's goals and directions made it a very uneasy environment to stay in.

    Advice to Management

    embellishing the recent changes going on is only harming your employee base, be real with your teams and be honest or you're going to continue losing top performers.

    "Good first job out of college"

    I worked at Experian full-time

    Pros

    Great first job out of college, everyone is young, office is laid back and casual, reasonable hours if you are good at time management, overtime for lower level employees, fun social events and free food. Good experience working with clients. Good amount of vacation days and you can sometimes work from home.

    Cons

    The account manager and senior account manager jobs can feel like monkey work, it is a lot of cut pasting. Promotions are based on who shmoozes the best and not on who is actually knowledgeable. There are competent people who never get promoted and completely incompetent people who never get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing everything to other countries and start promoting internally. Noone likes to see outsiders take the promotion that they should be up for without any explanation as to why.
