    Pros

    Great team and benefits. Managers are hard working and provide good feedback. Really really like the program of hiring consultants for long term employment.

    Cons

    No remote work is allowed since going back about 1 or 2 years due to un productivity from a few bad apples that were taking advantage of the existing system.

    This company cares little about their people

    I have been working at Experian full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some really wonderful product managers at this company.

    Cons

    This company doesn't care how they make the bottom line and they care little about people. They love to do reviews to make themselves look like a nice place to work but it is smoke and mirrors. They care only about the bottom line and they don't care how they get there as long as the money shows up in the right column. They overwork people and it is common practice for people to ask (when they have left the company) how long did you last there...giving the impression that lasting a long time at the company is something of a feat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Create a "real" team environment in Experian. This does not exist across BU's today.
    * pay attention to your middle management - you might be surprised what they are actually doing.
    * really listen to your employees and do something about it after you listen to them
    * Get rid of the channel conflict - there is way to much of it
    A company that has happy employees has better sales and ultimately a better company.

    Pros

    Great working environment at Experian Riskdisk on the sales floor, can be a fun place to work at times & they certainly know how to throw a good Christmas party! The hours are Monday to Friday 9 - 5 which is also a big positive with the odd early finish on a Friday.

    Cons

    They have a tendency to review targets constantly, when I left there were only an average of 3-4 people a week out of 31 doing the same role as me actually hitting target & therefore earning any commission, it is not unusual for only a single person to earn anything in any one week. The basic wage was £14250 which isn't great and for two years we were being promised a rise to 16k which has never arrived, even now the role is falsely advertised as a basic of £16.5k to lure people through the door. Has quite a high staff turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep your staff in the dark about future plans, the Riskdisk senior management needs to take more of an interest in their staff and their individual wellbeing and performance instead of simply looking at how much money they have made this week. Deliver on your promises, the pay progression scheme has been on hold for over two years, meanwhile all the staff employed in the last 27 months are now stuck earning nearly £2k a year less than promised.

    Pros

    Clever Software packages bought from other Companies.
    Most staff are good to work and socialise with.
    Office space is now comfortable and well located.

    Cons

    Lack of career progression, bring in 457s from Head Office that blocks you opportunities.
    Development and Support activities being moved to 4th world country.
    HR are overtly pro-affirmative action and actively discriminate against hetro-males.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find another career path.
