    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.

    The people, the culture, and the fact that the company is very generous when it comes to its employees.

    Having Experian creep in our smaller company making things a little bit tougher to get done.

    Manage change better. Keep the culture of your smaller business units in tact.

    Pros

    The company culture is great. Casual dress, free breakfast on Fridays, great training courses, fun activities like Beach Day, Boat Cruise and company parties. You are expected to work hard but they provide fun activities to reward you.

    Cons

    The location can make for a tough commute depending on where you live

    Advice to Management

    Some of the systems being used are old and need to be updated.

    Pros

    Experian is a dynamic, interesting, global organization. Talented executive management team. Amazing benefits. Great development opportunities.

    Cons

    Lack of consistency in culture and employment experience across Experian companies and business units.

    Advice to Management

    Seek more leadership consistency across EI, CSDA and EMS - at high levels culture and employment experience should be consistent

    Financially stable, well managed, smart leadership, variety of work, good people who understand that employees are people with a life outside of work
