    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cypress, CA (US)

    I worked at Experian full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work with opportunities for growth. Benefits were excellent and the vision of the company transcended across the entire organization

    Cons

    Corporate mission and values were handled with mixed commitment. On the one hand, innovation and excellence were encouraged; but on the other hand, all decisions were driven top down and entrepreneurial spirit was stifled. As a result the field operations became almost robotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be true to your statements so that everyone could feel the sincerity in your actions. Often the message that was delivered were mere words with no authenticity. Honor your high performers with opportunities to grow rather than an exit strategy.

    I worked at Experian as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly team mates.. Always open for suggestions.. Many new things to work.. Minds with innovative methods always at work.. You can get a real time experience of how credit services work..

    Cons

    Less room for career growth ... However learning experience is good.. Cross team trainings are very rare to be seen.. Might get good opportunities with technological aspect but only with self effort..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be great to implement sessions to educate employees about outside of their work team..
