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

Pros

Good work life balance, great office culture and great hardworking people to work with.

Cons

No personal growth, no perks, compensation is on the low end. Company is moving all development offshore and has no plan in place to do this. Product management in the UK is so disconnected with the development in the US. There is no accountability in any of the teams. Too many contractors and not many employees, huge risk.

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees. Allow for more training for employees. Pay market salaries.

    Pros

    There are a ton of side perks like bagels on Wednesday and cupcakes for birthdays.

    Cons

    The company almost never promotes internally, even if you are doing the job of people above you. They always hire outside people rather than promote from within. As a result it is easy to become stagnant within the company. There is no consistancy to the work. It all depends on what team you are placed. Some people work like dogs while others lounge around.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are top notch. The people who you interact with on a daily basis are wonderful. The company does a great job of appreciating employees via lunches, contests and a variety of team building activities. Laid back dress code. You really enjoy coming to work.

    Cons

    Most of the cons surround the layer of middle management.
    Some of the middle managers are micro-managers and can't see the forest for the trees.
    While some of the managers are flexible re: work hours/remote access, some are not where salaried staffers don't feel valued.
    Some middle managers don't appreciate new ideas and do not embrace innovation.
    Meetings are exceptionally long and include way too many people.
    Salaries are not as competitive.
    Projects move slower than a snail and the team acts as if they are overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at the middle layer of leadership.
