    2. Globally, an employer of choice
    3. Matured process
    4. Aggressive
    5. Knack for excellent acquisitions

    Cons

    1. Local senior management spends too much time and energy politicking

    3. No local talent cultivation, no investment in local IP
    4. Global products retrofitted at exorbitant costs for India and forced upon
    5. Poor agility
    6. A sense of doom and gloom among employees
    7. In a job market, attrition would be very high

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Hire top talent to lead Experian India
    2. Spend some time in understanding Indian uniqueness that compound the difficulty of doing business in India
    3. Do not force global products, leverage local talent and improve agility
    4. Make a couple of good acquisitions for momentum
    5. Make Experian India a great place to work

    I worked at Experian full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work with opportunities for growth. Benefits were excellent and the vision of the company transcended across the entire organization

    Cons

    Corporate mission and values were handled with mixed commitment. On the one hand, innovation and excellence were encouraged; but on the other hand, all decisions were driven top down and entrepreneurial spirit was stifled. As a result the field operations became almost robotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be true to your statements so that everyone could feel the sincerity in your actions. Often the message that was delivered were mere words with no authenticity. Honor your high performers with opportunities to grow rather than an exit strategy.

    Pros

    Lots of fabulous professional people, interesting and challenging projects with a splash of fun and laughter thrown in. Excellent working conditions, parking and pay.

    Cons

    You can end up so engrossed in projects your hours can be long. Sometimes its hard to move jobs internally which is important if you want to grow and stay fresh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give positive feedback it goes along way and encourage those staff nights out, it's when good friendships and teams are formed.
