I worked at Experian full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good pay, 40 hours a week, great benefits and potential bonuses, advancement opportunities.

Cons

Very competitive/demanding atmosphere. Have to have an good sales attitude to be successful.

Advice to Management

Great supervisors here. Keep doing what your doing. On an operations level: Get rid of retention. Asking someone to keep something they have already said they don't want 2 or 3 times is only going to make for a bad experience for both the customer and the agent.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, work from home, Some people who really care, get in with the right crowd and you can climb the ladder quickly, great place to learn various skill and gain global experience.

    Cons

    1st and foremost, company makes most major decisions based on what they think it will do to the stock, unless it makes the stock price go up, we aren't doing it. Some decisions aren't logical. Constantly cutting headcount to hit EBIT targets, too much decision by committee, the Matrix is not working, lots of finger pointing at the senior leadership level, total old boys club unless you are in your 30's and wear short skirts and shirts that show off you cleavage...well then you get noticed

    Lots of off-shoring of technical roles, minimal investment in products, they expect to make 40% margins but only invest 2-3% total revenue back into product, hence the decisions based on stock impact.

    If you progress on the ladder quickly don't expect your compensation to go up equally you will fall behind and they will make terrible excuses about why they can't catch you up

    They tollerate bad behavior from senior leaders, they keep poor performers around way too long, becomes detrimental to the business. Especially leaders who are poor performers.

    CEO never makes an attempt to connect with the people.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hit on the stock price and invest in the company, if you don't you won't have much in a few years. Sell Marketing Services already, its a dog.

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

    Pros

    The best part of working at Experian is the people. It's located not too far from where I live, which is also nice.

    Cons

    The pay isn't as much as I should have received, and I worked a lot of overtime, just to catch up with the increased workload.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of employee reviews, in the form of questionnaires, one-on-one meetings with supervisors or managers probably would be more effective.
