    Interesting company that is moving from being a collection of small operations to a more connected global organisation

    Commercial (Current Employee)

    ProsWide variety of work, good opportunities for travel. Generally employ intelligent staff. Compensation is lower side of average, time off average, work life balance mixed

    ConsExperian still hasn't quite managed to start like acting like a grown up global company. Regional and local profit targets get in the way of effectively dealing with growth and investment sometimes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going. Still much to do. And just because consultants cost more doesn't mean they must be right! Trust and stretch your own staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Exceptional process, updated regularly and understood the next steps all the way through.

    Human Resources Business Partner/Manager (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsExcellent package, great extra's, that's the least of my pro's, the atmosphere and general supportive culture is outstanding. Great place to work. The interview and the process that followed was excellent.

    ConsThe overall recruitment process was excellent, however a little slow, the upside is that I was kept informed all the way through.

    Global Technology Services: Good people, skills, opportunities and re-numeration

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople - feels like you're working with like minded adults!
    Pay - if you work hard then there is ample opportunity for extra income and advancement
    Travel - plenty of opportunity to travel if in the right role
    Trust - My experience is that employees are given a high level of autonomy

    ConsAmerican Centric - sometimes it feels as if the U.S. comes first
    Letting good staff go - too many talented people in lower positions have been let go in cost cutting exercises

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo what most management should do, be more: accountable; approachable; reflexive; employee focused; adaptable. Team building should feature more, as should subsidisation for staff events (nights out etc).

    Great place to start your career

    Finance Intern (Former Employee) Costa Mesa, CA (US)

    ProsIf you take the initiative, there are always opportunities for recognition. You can take on high profile projects and work with members outside your functional group. The team environment is friendly and nurturing, and management is open and receptive.

    ConsThere are few opportunities for career growth within the company. Although they do hire internally, you're more likely to expand within your given role rather than move up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would have been interesting to have more cross-functional team experiences to increase employee ownership of company (versus functional) goals and objectives.

    Collaborative work environment on exciting projects

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsInteresting projects coming in with more of a consulting angle. Collaborative work environment is great when you are starting out.

    ConsExpect potentially long hours in kind of an unexpected manner. Project deadlines dictate whether or not you can maintain a flexible schedule.

    Good place to work

    Sales (Former Employee) Schaumburg, IL (US)

    ProsGood company. Great location. Professional staff. Excellent benefits. There is room for moving up in the company, just have to kiss the right tush.

    ConsRevolving door. Job security can be an issue, even for great employees. Culture is a bit loopy at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the hire/lay off cycle. It creates paranoia among employees and leads to decreased productivity. Have some faith in your employees and invest in them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
