    I worked at Experian (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people. Company genuinely cares about your success. Flexible lifestyle and good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Office located out in Schaumburg so living in the suburbs would be much easier than downtown Chicago. Quotas are a bit aggressive but the pay is very worth it should you overachieve.

    Pros

    Experian's culture is amazing - a total commitment to diversity and inclusion which is supported from the top down. Leadership really does care about the employees and the communities in which we operate.

    The company supports work arrangements that allow for "life" balance and they offer amazing benefits.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Great place to get started in sales or marketing.

    Cons

    Development of products is a bit lacking and dependent on what the UK office is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Expand your internal development team in order to keep up with your competitors. Get back to what you were originally successful at.
