    I have been working at Experian as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, excellent pay and benefits. Most of the time, the work is quite interesting.

    Cons

    Too much change over the last year. During the recession there were lots of lay-offs and virtually no positions have been refilled. This has led to burnout amongst too many good people. While the work is rewarding and the people are great, the consistent demand to do more with less is going to drive people to leave now that the job market is better.

    Former Employee - Service Manager in Sofia (Bulgaria)
    Former Employee - Service Manager in Sofia (Bulgaria)

    I worked at Experian full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice, modern office building. Good salary for the sector and size of the company. Colleagues are nice, not too bad.

    Cons

    More work and responsibilities does not equate more pay - i.e. you get promoted to a manager, but you still are getting the same money as your direct reports. Talks about pay raise are met with "can't promise anything, maybe in a couple of years." Local management is arrogant and their people's management competence - under question.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local support heads are managers, but not leaders. You need more leaders locally, management can be done remotely, but a good example to follow should be local. Also, if promoting somebody - first secure their pay-raise and only then entrust them with the new responsibilities. Resentment ensues otherwise.

    Pros

    Good salary for Bulgaria. You can earn more when you take an on call shift.

    Cons

    There is no knowledge sharing so you should learn everything by the hard way. So it's a big challange.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should start listen people what are they saying and appreciate them more.

    Pros

    in some departments there is better work/life balance in others not so much.

    Cons

    Do not count on the bonus if taking a new position. Management is asking newcomers for input however always turn it down. Company does not invest money in the new software and uses mostly freeware or old outdated versions that not compatible with new versions that is currently on the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the new updated software, allocate budget for technical training, be more open to the suggestions that new hires bring with their experience from other companies - it will help you to keep the company on the decent level.
