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

Pros

Good technical staff (co-workers) and well defined set of tasks or responsibilities. Pay is average, and work flexibility is up to your manager. Good set of procedures and policies in place. Not a lot of turn-over at the non-management level. My manager was very good at insulating us from inappropriate tasks or requests from outside our department.

Cons

Constant re-organization. First we were going to off-shore tech jobs and we did. A few years later the reversed the decision and closed the off-shore facility as well as some branch offices. Management doesn't really look to employee feedback in a meaningful way, though few places do.

    I have been working at Experian full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Experian has a generous vacation package. Some Business Units have a dynamic and start up culture and they match 401ks contributions to a point. There is potential for good career growth.

    Cons

    Employee contributions to our Health Plan is not insignificant and the plans are so-so. Employees can't carry vacation over, (use it or stop accruing). Weak managers can derail an employees experience at Experian. Management development is weak and the quality of managers varies wildly across the company.


  2. "No Job Satisfaction"
