Great people The Growth potential for products and people is solid, great roadmap Awesome employee support Very good executive communications to employees
Not enough focus on full time hiring of Project Managers, the focus seems to be engineering/developers2Experian Response3mo

I love working at Experian. The culture is inclusive and supports growth. No micro-managing, remote work flexibility and respectful co-workers.
Have more team off-sites. It is nice for remote teams.

Work From Home, flexible hours.
Biggest con is compensation. Compensation is based on departments budget and not the skills, knowledge or experience the individual brings to the table. Annual raises are minimal despite promises that inflation is being taken into account. Don't expect anything over 2% and if you bring it up you will be told your lucky to get anything at all or that you still have a job despite the workload. New employees are paid significantly more than those who have been with the company for years, it's best to boomerang if you want a better wage/salary. Yearly bonuses are percentage based on performance however, top performers are minimally rewarded for their above and beyond efforts. So don't bend over backwards, it's not worth it. Lots of pat on the back meetings with double speak to mask lack of compensation for their employees efforts as if kudos and recognition pays bills.1

The people I worked with in the Health Business Unit are some of the best people I have ever worked alongside of. They care about you as a person and professional. I received ample mentorship and coaching to assist in my career development.
Like with most large corporations, things move slower than you'd like. Takes a lot of time and effort to make incremental change.1
- 4.0Oct 30, 2023Lead IT Project ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsCosta Mesa, CA
Love their remote work culture. They are not asking employees to return to office as most other big companies are, which is really appreciated by employees. Benefits are great - decent health insurance, 4% 401k match, decent bonus, time off, half days before long weekends.
An older company with lots of red tape around access and processes. Also very hierarchical - top management is quite heavy, there are too many VP’s and Directors. They pride themselves in being agile but their reporting structure says otherwise. Some employees attitude is that they have been doing things a certain way and would not like to adapt any new processes or systems. So it is tough to bring about a change,1Experian Response2mo

Experian leads with purpose, our purpose permeates throughout the company having a good positive impact on the overall company culture.
Experian is very fiscally responsible. It runs a bit lean on resources. Hidden positive because it has not had any layoffs in many years.4Experian Response2w

I had never worked with identity and fraud folks before. This was hands down the most ethical and down to earth group I could have found (based in AZ). Our clients were huge, but we all shared in a mission to rid the world of bad actors. I guess that might seem surprising given this was at an evil credit bureau, but actually, everyone across the company was sane, mature and kind. I had a chance to learn, spread my wings, take risks and was supported when I failed.
It's a big company, and whenever there are tectonic shifts in one large area of the business, the ripples can be felt in others. Not sure how true that is or whether I was just perceiving it at the time, but with the great opportunities that come with working in a large company full of diverse opportunities, there are also plenty of times where changes occur and they're completely out of your control.4Experian Response3mo
