    I have been working at Experian full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Experian has launched a new brand committed to helping people improve their quality of life through its services. The relatively new CEO brought this vision and it is fascinating to see the transformation gaining momentum. It is a different way to look at the role a data company can play in society and one that I feel very proud of.

    Cons

    What is challenging is also what I love about the company, and that is its global structure. It is amazing to work with colleagues all over the world and at Experian there is a very high degree of cooperation and courtesy. But of course there is added complexity as a result of time zone, language and cultural differences. Things take longer and there is some patience required. But overall, it is much more of a benefit than detriment.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to discover and cultivate talent. There is a process in place, but we can always do more in this area.

    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.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Willing to bring on young blood and open to new ideas. Lots of opportunities and great people to grow your network. Being apart of a team that uses new technology and be apart of a new platform.

    Cons

    Upper management does not realize some of the few old school thinkers left that only manage up and does not produce work. Sometimes you have to play the corporate game.

    Advice to Management

    Keep noticing the real talents, reduce contractors and invest in full time employees.
