Corporate juggernaut

Product Manager (Former Employee)
Nottingham, England (UK)

I worked at Experian full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood working environment, conditions and facilities
Good career opporunities
Diverse and generally skilled workforce

ConsBeing a corporate juggernaut means it is slow to change and adapt
Speed to market is a real issue
Investment in one area is offset by a reduction on others - can be a lottery
Thinks it is customer focused - it is the opposite

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to be customer/client focussed then put your money where your mouth is. Put it in objectives, mission statements, forecasts and overall company ethos. Instead all it really boils down to is share price - so why retend otherwise?

I left because of the is unertone of saying one thing and doing another.

Business outlook will be good - because all it cares about is share price - if thats what interests you then you'll enjoy it.

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

A decent place to work but management really needs to listen to its employees

Senior Development Manager (Current Employee)
Costa Mesa, CA (US)

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

ProsGood work life balance, great office culture and great hardworking people to work with.

ConsNo personal growth, no perks, compensation is on the low end. Company is moving all development offshore and has no plan in place to do this. Product management in the UK is so disconnected with the development in the US. There is no accountability in any of the teams. Too many contractors and not many employees, huge risk.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees. Allow for more training for employees. Pay market salaries.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It could be worse.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Experian full-time for more than 8 years

ProsDecent pay & benefits plan; pretty casual dress code; somewhat flexible schedule; family-like environment

ConsMundane work; current hiring freeze places more work the remaining individuals; quite often, there's too much work, and too little resources

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to keep your employees refreshed.

Great, very rewarding super internship

Client Engagement (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Experian part-time for less than a year

ProsNice group of people. Very motivated and wants to do well. Great location in midtown. If you work hard it can be very easy to move up.

ConsWork can get very repetitive. It is all about using the internal tool, which seems to have many setbacks. Should be revamped.
