    I worked at Experian full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Experian has a good culture for work/life balance. They do try to make the facilities adequate to make a good work environment.

    Cons

    Fragmented division of teams makes getting anything implemented correctly is near impossible. Appreciation of employees is more like a popularity contest than being based on skill or competence.

    Advice to Management

    Create an internal structure where problems can be identified and addressed. Stop focusing on change for the sake of change but to actually improve shortcomings.

    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

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

    Pros

    Experian has launched a new brand committed to helping people improve their quality of life through its services. The relatively new CEO brought this vision and it is fascinating to see the transformation gaining momentum. It is a different way to look at the role a data company can play in society and one that I feel very proud of.

    Cons

    What is challenging is also what I love about the company, and that is its global structure. It is amazing to work with colleagues all over the world and at Experian there is a very high degree of cooperation and courtesy. But of course there is added complexity as a result of time zone, language and cultural differences. Things take longer and there is some patience required. But overall, it is much more of a benefit than detriment.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to discover and cultivate talent. There is a process in place, but we can always do more in this area.

    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.
