Experian – Why Work For Us?

undefined

What you bring to the world of Experian makes a world of difference.

Imagine having the power to bring data to life. To take information and turn it into solutions that advance industries, power companies, and improve the lives of millions of consumers around the world. That’s the challenge we take on at Experian in North America. Our team members excel at making businesses and communities stronger through the power of insight. Are you ready to inspire new ways of thinking—and achieve new levels of career success?

 Back to when our parent companies gained traction in lines of business that would take decades, and in some cases a century, to cross. As is the case with many documented bloodlines, it is sometimes the most unlikely of pairings that combine to produce a great champion.

 

 Likewise, the story of Experian can be traced back as far as 1900, across three continents, to three primary organizations. Over the subsequent century, a series of events, mergers, splits, and reorganizations would uniquely position the combination of Europe’s leading information services company, CCN; the largest credit bureau in the U.S., TRW; and Brazil’s first credit agency, Serasa to form Experian the world's leading information services company.

That was 1996. Today, Experian provides data and analytical tools to clients around the world and across almost every major industry, from telecommunications and healthcare to government and automotive. Though our past is diverse, an analysis of our history shows some pervasive consistencies: 


We are risk takers, repeatedly taking big bets on new markets and groundbreaking technology to move our business forward.



We are fierce, and often relentless, in our determination to see things through.



We question everything— from the smallest service detail to an entire business model—always with a willingness to break the mold.

These themes are woven throughout our past and will continue to define our efforts long into the future.

When you bring your passion and expertise to Experian, you'll contribute to something special.

It's a rare quality that permeates our entire organization, and you'll notice it instantly. Our Global CEO, Don Robert, describes this unique attribute as the Heart of Experian, and it captures who we are, the way we work, and how we see the future-as well as the impact we intend to have on it.

The Heart of Experian is reflected in our core DNA, which we summarize in the three key words.

 

Heart of Experian Connect Protect Create 

Connect
We work together to make a difference for our clients, helping them interact successfully with their own customers.

Protect
We take care of data and information, safeguarding the financial interests of organizations and consumers and always instilling trust.

Create
Here, everyone's ideas matter. Our focus is to define and refine smart ways to transform data into informative insights for our customers and clients. We continuously seek to improve and advance.

The combination of these actions motivates all that we do. It's powerful stuff. And it all starts when our people get together to harness the power of insight.

Which is exactly why our number one focus is—and always will be—those who make us great every day. We understand that to keep the outstanding people we have—and attract new ones—we have to identify the expectations we have of one another. We call this “The Employee Deal,” and it defines the way we work—so together we can reach our potential. Here are some of the promises we make to help ensure mutual success:

To do great work, people need freedom, and we give you the authority, autonomy, and support to make meaningful contributions to our business and our community.  

Our success is intimately tied to yours. That’s why we offer rewards that recognize great performance. Working together, we push each other to deliver our best every day.   

We respect you and your goals and want you to feel both challenged and fulfilled by what you do. We make sure you work with smart people who inspire you. And we work hard to connect you to the rest of the company so that we feel united in mission and focus.  

We believe work should be challenging and interesting, and we encourage the sharing of ideas, opinions, and feedback.   

We encourage you to explore your potential by offering a vast array of roles and geographies in which to work. We also support a training curriculum that encourages ongoing learning and the opportunity to pursue your ambitions throughout the course of your career.

Data is infinite. It's everywhere. It's everything

And its collection, analysis, and application motivate everything we do here at Experian. When you harness the trillions of data points that surround and inform everyday actions, you amplify the meaning of those actions and give them the predictive power to inform and guide decisions. What kinds of decisions?

Well, for individuals, we guide healthy financial decision-making by empowering them to understand, manage, and protect their credit information.

For the entrepreneur looking to open a storefront, the information we power can help determine the neighborhood, street, or even exact address that will ensure the most foot traffic.

For marketers, it can help guide campaign planning—like when to start that holiday advertising and which cross-channel approach to pursue to stay ahead of the competition.

For individuals and organizations, we supply solutions that can safeguard against international crimes such as fraud and identity theft.

For the industry-leading retailer, we can map trends, apply predictive modeling, and increase ROI through made-to-order, high-performance solutions.

At Experian, we understand that it takes creativity, passion, and expertise to unlock the power of data and bring it to life. We know that fresh perspectives can spur inspiration, often leading to a new way of tackling a challenge.

    I have been working at Experian full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not too bad pay and fringe benefits. Guaranteed flexibility for work-life balance. Hefty minions from 3rd world to deal with tedious chores.

    Cons

    It's all about numbers. Board says x% growth this year and this goes through to CEO, region, business and team. What it means is everything here is like "we get $y deal then we will spend $z to make it happen" not the other way around. Therefore All the middle-managers are focusing on shine their achievements sheet without investing any $ and things gets really preposterous way to make them happy, period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scrap ridiculous performance for growth. It's understandable paperwork only if one manager manages 50+ people underneath him. If one have difficult to manage <10 team member without that paperwork, better get rid of him/her and hire local high-school baseball team couch instead.

    To new CEO: Probably better not starting new CEO world tour concert while squeezing out people for excessive travel costs.
