    Pros

    Strong leadership team, much more frequent communication from CEO and other leaders. I like the in-person town halls. It is great that we are trying new venues (i.e. streaming webcasts) and inviting more leaders to talk informally about key initiatives that are going on across NA.

    Cons

    Need to continue to focus on innovation and more importantly, help to educate employees that innovation can be simple ideas of how to improve processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work on communication and continue to bring the brand work forward.

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

    Pros

    5 weeks vacation after just two years, paid paternity/maternity leave, nice technologies, have a lot of saying on the building process

    Cons

    Too many changes too fast, get very chaotic very fast, requirement change all the times and meaningless features are introduced all the times without adding any value to the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, some areas have training all the time and we are engineering and haven't have anything for the last year and half

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    1) an experience working for a big company

    Cons

    1) incompetent people
    2) treat you as the slave
    3) no compensation
    4) no opportunities to grow
    5) a lot of politics games
    6) high level people do not care about mid-level people
    7) a lot of gossiping around each and everything
    8) people are selfish and arrogant
    9) a small salary for this amount of stress and work

    Advice to Management

    Be open not only in your words on public but also in real actions. Listen to your employees and not to your ego of the bonus for the year. Give your employees a chance to grow inside the company. Do play the game we do not care we just hire and cut people whenever we want.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Willing to bring on young blood and open to new ideas. Lots of opportunities and great people to grow your network. Being apart of a team that uses new technology and be apart of a new platform.

    Cons

    Upper management does not realize some of the few old school thinkers left that only manage up and does not produce work. Sometimes you have to play the corporate game.

    Advice to Management

    Keep noticing the real talents, reduce contractors and invest in full time employees.

    Pros

    Experian has a great culture and allows employees to innovate their ideas and use data to benefit the organization. Experian definitely has a great company culture and allows the people to empower themselves. Experian also have a competitive and comparable benefits plans that is highly advantageous to the market.

    Cons

    I wish Experian would adopt paid leave absences. Even 4-6 weeks would benefit our employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what consumers and members are asking for as we want lifetime members that will not only invest in our products and services, but also have a relationship with the brand.
