    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.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits; supportive & knowledgeable co-workers; considerate & supportive of family life; skill enhancement training opportunities encouraged..

    Cons

    Non-integration of acquisitions forces deviation in infrastructure design standards; IT budget is tight causing delays to refresh, yet IT Sr management are pushed to keep technology current.

    Advice to Management

    Enterprise architecture should listen to infrastructure operations, not just business acquisition devops.
