    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Experian (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Managers are accessible to discuss any kind of issues.
    Good benefits and salary according to the market.
    I like the flexibility the company.
    Good teamwork.
    Business casual dress code.

    Cons

    To many useless meetings that absorbs the time to deliver the work on time.
    The company does not care about your career growth. The company does not have any good plan for that.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest that managers should invest in more training, certifications for their employees. appraisals and promotions are the minimum, employees need to feel they are growing in their careers.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Some skilled people and good benefits; work can be satisfying

    Cons

    Management by monthly financials with no concern for longer term results so there is a constant crisis as people try to make monthly goals often resulting in shortcuts and pressure to pre-book revenue before actual delivery. When number are bad, there are always job cuts regardless of performance. No career development and lots of politics and cronyism.

    Advice to Management

    Develop coherent longer term goals and manage to them considering the future not just the current month. Appreciate the expertise that experienced people bring to the company; value and develop your employees

    Pros

    Fun company events. Reasonable pay. Great benefits. Lots of giveaway goodies. The people are the best!

    Cons

    Extremely political depending on your department. Most of executive management is great but there are a couple monsters.

    Advice to Management

    Much is done in the name of providing a good culture. Some embrace this. Some do not. Executive management should look inward and decide if they are conducting themselves in a way that is consistent with a positive culture. Not just in their own business, but in outside businesses they interact with as well. Company personality is dictated from the top.
