    Pros

    People- the people at EDQ are amazing. We work as teams and really want to see everyone be successful. There is a lot of collaboration and camaraderie. The managers really care about their employees and want to see them be successful.
    Benefits- good PTO/ sick/ holiday time off. Nice little perk is that most people work remotely or take time off between Christmas and New Years too. Gives you some time to regroup for a bit.
    Employee events- external employee events have declined a bit but there are always internal events going on in the office and after work if you are able to attend.

    Cons

    Change (not always a bad thing) but seems pretty constant- reorgs, new leadership, lay offs, internal moves. Senior Leadership could do a better job at communicating the business strategy and vision.

    Advice to Management

    Let the dust settle before you continue to make changes. Continue to improve communication.

    I worked at Experian full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location, ok commute time and benefits, and casual dress code.

    Cons

    HR people sitting around doing nothing but posting fake company reviews and hyping themselves up as being strategic business partners. Terrible culture of unethical behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead weights in HR using HR practices from the dinosaur days and managing the business and employees like the mafia.
