Pros

Lots of opportunities to move about and work within various business units. Diverse culture with many locations across the United States and a growing network of locations abroad.

Cons

Constant change and restructuring, especially for newly acquired businesses. Heavy focus on continuous acquisition of new businesses without making sure that those acquired have been effectively integrated.

Advice to Management

Improve communication through ranks and amongst business units. Be more receptive to internal issues. More focused on becoming a leading edge company.

    Pros

    The company is large and becoming more global and I see more opportunities opening up in the next 5 years. There are some new leaders that have solid plans to grow the company and its people.

    Cons

    They tend to be bottom-line focused rather than employee focused but I think that balance is in the process of changing. There has not been enough effort made to differential the high performing employees from the average or below average performers and to compensate them accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain your best people, you need to help them and give them career support. You also need to have a policy of promoting from within. You need to train or get rid of the small but visible group of people who are underperformers and make work more difficult for the majority of hard-working people.

    Pros

    Experian's senior leadership if very strategic and future-focused. They look far down the road in order to put business strategies in place today that will help keep the company profitable in lean times.

    Cons

    Depending upon your position, opportunities for career and professional growth can be somewhat limited. There is not as much focus on developing existing employees with good potential as there is on recruiting from outside for a desired skilll set.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in those existing Experian employees with great potential to take future leadership roles. Try a mentoring program or department rotation program for those employees recognized to have potential to lead the company so that you can continue to position Experian for the future.
