      I have been working at Experian full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      12 week maternity leave 6 week paternity leave 120 paid vacation hours per year 40 sick hours short and long term disability paid volunteer time off yearly bonuses and raises depending on your metrics and stats 401k bcbs health insurance they pay you more if you are bilingual

      Cons

      since working there they've had a random layoffs but they pay compensation if they lay you off. There is always alot of changes and it can be hard to keep up but just like any other job, follow rules and policies and you'll be good. If you are positive about random changes then it shouldn't really affect you. health insurance is a bit pricey

      I have been working at Experian full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The company is highly regarded in the industry as it relates to data and credit. We are a leader, and nearly everyone has heard of us, which carries a respectable amount of pride when you say where you work. Management and colleagues are among the best I’ve worked with in over 15 years of corporate sales experience. My time with Experian has truly been quite lovely. Contrary to what some reviewers may say, this is indeed...

      Cons

      Automotive is in an exciting transition. This is not a con as much as it is an opportunity for growth and new ideas.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to be open to feedback and ideas as you’ve done. Everyone will be very successful as long as we keep open minds and open dialog. Auto Up!
