    I have been working at Experian full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large global company. Opportunity to travel in some areas. Finally in a growth mode after years of cutbacks. Some departments seem to have built strong teams who work well together. good community involvement for charity work

    Cons

    No recognition for actual performance of work - people with many years of service or above average reviewes are let go to support cuts. Looking to move out of California and in some cases entire departments are being replaced with new staff in Costa Rica, Texas or Chile or outsourced altogether. If you come in at a low salary, it is hard to get to market levels with the raise pool that is available every year. High pressure, low management support (some departments). Low morale some departments). Some charity photo shoots are not as they seem (last minute photo ops and not indicative of what really was happening but forced to fit around someones travel schedule).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look deeper into the cost cutting efforts you take to understand the impact to the business. Replacing entire teams 100% is fairly risky and you may have key people available to work in other areas. Secondly, don't blindly accept what you hear from your BU leads as true. do some digging to see exactly what your mangement is doing and saying before you believe it to be true. you are too far removed to get any valuable data as to what is going on.

    I worked at Experian full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Smart people, very hard-working with good intentions. Large company offers opportunity to move laterally. Pleasant work environment with reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    There is a lack of focus as the company is trying to master too many things in too many markets. Individual executives typically have their own agenda and rarely work together for the greater good. Lots of turnover at the mid-management level. Experian wants to be viewed as innovative but is locked into short-term thinking and earnings pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick no more than 3 big goals and commit to them. Don't short-change opportunities by saying you support them but then refusing to allocate sufficient resources to be successful.
