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

    Pros

    Career opportunities in many business units or globally, development resources, working with smart people, being able to innovate, working on a winning team, being able to do volunteer work, work for a company with integrity...so many more pro's.

    Cons

    Non-sales functions can be lean in terms of resources so you need to regularly create efficiency to survive. Internal systems are archaic and inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade technology; our finance and HR systems are due for an overhaul if we want to be competitively ahead. Build more effective product management capabilities that continually deliver what clients need now and in the future. You are focused on making it a great place to work, but why do internal processes continue to be inefficient? Senior leaders accountable to make us more efficient and responsive to clients.

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

    Pros

    -Management allows me to do my job and gives me lots of independence in what I do
    -FTO (Flexible Time Off) is generous and easy to use
    -Lots of opportunities to move around and learn on the job
    -Good people to work with at the peer level, immediate manager level (my previous and current boss are both great) and the leadership level. The chain of command above me is fair and inspiring
    -I could list more, but I'll sum it up with: In general, I am very happy at Experian

    Cons

    No complaints worth mentioning here :)

    I have been working at Experian full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture, people and leadership. Experian believes in a work life balance that I haven't seen in any other company I've been with. They adapt and are flexible with all things pertaining to their employees. Development is encouraged and they are willing to provide resources as it pertains to your career. Overall great place to work!

    Cons

    Although development is encouraged, it seems a bit difficult to find opportunities for advancement within the company. The tools are provided to do so, but I'm not sure if internal candidates are truly considered for advancement opportunities. Also it seems they are on the the lower end of salary compensation as compared with other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work with great stability and culture. Internal advancement is something that should be looked into as well as competitive compensation.

    I have been working at Experian full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Experian 9 years and find the environment safe and secure. I enjoy the collaborative work environment and the "Let's get it done" attitude of my co-workers. People receive recognition for the work they do both inside and outside the organization. They provide many opportunities to volunteer inside and outside the organization. The company gives back to the community we work in.,

    Cons

    The salary may be on the lower side but the compensation package is generous and fair.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of PTO. Up to 4 weeks off during the first year. People are generally easy to work with. Benefits are pretty good, especially paternity leave. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    It seems that the promotions for non-execs are nonexistent unless you've played the game with the right people. Rather than promoting from within a team of qualified people, discussions happen behind closed doors and an outside person is given a group without any posted positions or interviews.

    Advice to Management

    At least pretend like there's an opportunity to advance. Strictly political promotions are disheartening.
