IT Group

IT Group (Former Employee)
Schaumburg, IL (US)

I worked at Experian for more than 5 years

ProsIf your ingrained in the group you can get away with doing very very little, and with no career skill advancement on your part. If your lucky, you can get a very good paycheck for doing nothing, and not even showing up to work. Heck get an IT management position and not even know what SDLC stands for. Or be a project manager and never have seen MS Project in your life.

ConsToo many overpaid - underskilled staff sitting on their behinds. First level management protects their friends to protect their jobs. Front line management does not posses the knowledge or skill sets to understand the requests or requirements being presented, they are to rock the boat. Far too many uneducated and underskilled staff that have been protected for years and now that the real world has come knocking on their door, they are scared and complaining, Where else can you have a job for 10 plus years in IT without a degree, no certifications, no skill set improvement? Where else can you complain that you cant work from home most of the week? Where else can you come to work past nine, take a two hour lunch, (two hours because besides lunch I have to exercise or play volleyball) and leave before five pm. Most of the older employees act as if it is a high school clich.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean up the dead wood sitting there in Schaumburg, you can remove half the IT group and would not see a difference - especially with the senior members. Stop calling people what they are not, a customer service representative is not a project manager, a solutions arch is not some coder who has managed to sit in the same chair for 15 years. A business analyst is not someone who just happens to have worked with the same workflow for 20 years but has not other knowledge or experience. You have a bunch of overpaid cry babies who need a dose of reality

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great people, but lacking focus and commitment.

Pros: Smart people, very hard-working with good intentions. Large company offers… Cons: There is a lack of focus as the company is trying to master too many things in too many markets.

Great on Stock Market - Regular type of Company for Employees

Director (Current Employee)
Sherman, TX (US)

I have been working at Experian full-time for more than a year


Pros: Fairly good compensation. Good Benefits. Schedule flexibility when needed. I've crossed paths with a lot of really good, hard-working employees. … Cons: Only been with Experian for 2 years. Already had one major round of layoffs in my sub-business, another is on its way, and a… Advice to Senior Management: Stop with the catchy nonsensical programs such as "The Employee Deal," "The Heart of Experian," and such. Just tell us… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
