    Pros

    Strong leadership team, much more frequent communication from CEO and other leaders. I like the in-person town halls. It is great that we are trying new venues (i.e. streaming webcasts) and inviting more leaders to talk informally about key initiatives that are going on across NA.

    Cons

    Need to continue to focus on innovation and more importantly, help to educate employees that innovation can be simple ideas of how to improve processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work on communication and continue to bring the brand work forward.

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

    Pros

    5 weeks vacation after just two years, paid paternity/maternity leave, nice technologies, have a lot of saying on the building process

    Cons

    Too many changes too fast, get very chaotic very fast, requirement change all the times and meaningless features are introduced all the times without adding any value to the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, some areas have training all the time and we are engineering and haven't have anything for the last year and half

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

    Pros

    Experian is focused on changing/enhancing people's lives and making a difference in how businesses make decisions! Big emphasis on serving customers. Experian has a very inclusive culture and has meaningful goals and initiatives around diversity, particularly around achieving gender balance globally. Experian displays strong ethics and co-workers are collaborative and passionate about business success. High performing employees earn greater rewards and opportunities for development. High investment in training and development.

    Cons

    Experian can feel somewhat fragmented given the organization structure - regional/global vs. business lines. Employees experienced in matrix organizations will find it easy to navigate, but those with less or no similar experience will need help to develop ways to work across boundaries. Experian does offer training to employee on this.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more visibility to how the OpCo (most senior leaders) work as one team. Continue to help employees to get a clearer view of the global approach we are taking to our business - internally and externally.
