    Pros

    I have worked at Experian 9 years and find the environment safe and secure. I enjoy the collaborative work environment and the "Let's get it done" attitude of my co-workers. People receive recognition for the work they do both inside and outside the organization. They provide many opportunities to volunteer inside and outside the organization. The company gives back to the community we work in.,

    Cons

    The salary may be on the lower side but the compensation package is generous and fair.
