    I have been working at Experian Marketing Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really smart colleagues. Global company. Unlimited opportunities. I really like my team and manager. The senior management is solid and there is high competitive pay.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of. Big company so I don't know everyone but we have a nice office in downtown near Wallstreet.

    The staff were amazing. Dedicated professional people.

    Cons

    Revolving door of senior management, each with a "shrink to greatness" approach had a negative impact on staff.

    Advice to Management

    Engage the employees on a more consistent basis.

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

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits. Used to have the smartest and hardest employees in the the industry.

    Cons

    - Demoralized tech staff
    - If you are not in the inner circle you have zero career progression
    - Managers move up by running smear campaigns against others
    - Managers will straight up lie to CYA
    - New motto is "We fix problems by reorganization"

    Advice to Management

    For top level management don't accept information at face value ask for proof. Your management and their inner circle is playing the perception game.

    I worked at Experian Marketing Services full-time

    Pros

    Clients are pretty impressive. You can phone in your job and ususally won't be called out on it

    Cons

    Caretaker management has ruined the business. The same team (?) from the early Cheetah days is still in place, and the business has dwindled to a skeleton of what it once was. Classic case of no vision and resting on laurels

    Advice to Management

    Business is up for sale. Buyer beware.

    I worked at Experian Marketing Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good 401k matching, moderate paid vacation

    Cons

    Lack of vision, direction, policy from upper management. Too much politics, massive layoff, which created a depressed working environment.

    Advice to Management

    The ship is sinking. Need to get rid of the COO, or sell the company.

    Pros

    Benefits are up to normal standards. Once was a great place to work.

    Cons

    The platform is a disaster. Customers are fleeing. HR works for the company and not the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and sell to someone who might fix the disastrous platform.

    Pros

    Well-executed annual Client Summit in Vegas.

    Cons

    Very low salaries that are not market-rate. You're just a number here and can coast, but that won't get you too far in life. Plus, they're now divesting marketing services BUs...yikes.

    Growth opportunities afforded to those included in the inner circle. Good benefits and flexibility.

    Pros

    Interesting mix of clients, good benefits and work-life balance. Dynamic company and industry with new opportunities coming up all the time. New branding is a welcome step in the right direction.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional management culture brought on by frequent re-orgs, cost-cutting moves, and internal struggles over resources. Accounting and management functions have lagged behind functional changes in organization. Lack of trust among internal groups is causing an already-overworked staff to spend time trying to protect their own interests from perceived internal competition. Customer satisfaction from long-term, high-revenue clients is suffering despite high net-promoter ratings overall.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to the cultural side effects of all those reorgs and budget cuts. I wonder if you notice the sense of cynicism that has begun to take hold within the organization as remaining staffers become fatigued and demoralized. There will be long-term consequences to the orgamization's effectiveness.

    I worked at Experian Marketing Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pays well if upper management likes you.

    Cons

    Political atmosphere, office is divided, constant smear tactics by senior managers to make any dissenters look bad. Lost a lot of talent due to this. Constant re-orgs, quarterly/monthly layoffs, incompetent and insecure management. Complete lack of integrity by senior leadership.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late anyway.
