I have been working at Experian full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- in the main people are friendly although not the smartest or hardest working
- work life balance is typically OK but reflected in poor pay and benefits

Cons

- pay is poor and below market rate for most roles except sales and senior management
- poor talent retention and nurturing at junior level
- company burdened by process and approvals - many missed opportunities due to slow decision making by committee
- the company is full of people who get paid well and do nothing because they are friends with the right people. Removing the deadwood would help with morale of many

Advice to Management

- focus on developing talent within
- pay to retain best junior staff (all the best are leaving within 2/3 years)
- greater scrutiny of senior exec expenses (some are outrageous)
- remove deadwood employees that are expensive and add zero value. Particularly in the central corporate function
- your idea of bonus scheme is a joke, even for the global corporate teams

    Pros

    The trainers do a good job and provide the level of support you would need in the role.

    Cons

    Shifts are ludicrous, managers don't provide correct support, not interested in maintaining employees, not paid or given back overtime after shift has ended, holiday system is a joke! Lack of proper organisation and planning skills. People only get better opportunities and progression if you suck up, not actually bothered about supporting and promoting those who do know their job inside out and are fully competent at doing the job. Company is highly promoting on basis of suck ups and a case of if their face fits, nothing to do with if they are able to do the job; which is generally not the case in the ones who get promoted! Overall a company to be avoided unless you like being treated like they own you and can do as they please!
    High turn over of staff due to all of the above and more! A company that's as bad as the coalition government!!

    Advice to Management

    Time to actually think about your employees and what's best for them, not what suits the big people at the top! Promote and support people properly.
