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

Pros

Clear strategy, great CEO, has grown up alot since floated in 2006 and for anyone who wants to get diverse experience in a fast growth business, it still has plenty to offer. People are very friendly and want to help, there is a good team ethic through the business, which has grown alot over last few years. Benefits package is generally good overall, but base pay is no more than market average.

Cons

Snr HR leadership team is OK, but by no means world beating and the organisation has outgrown current HRD. The rewards for Snr people seem at odds with other people lower in the organisation, so it would be nice for some of the great growth and results to trickle down. For people who perform, there is great experience to gain, albeit this doesn't always follow with promotions and reward, which can/will frustrate the ambitious There is a frustrating tendency to recruit externally for Snr roles, rather than use talent internally, which is far cheaper and much lower risk of failure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look inside the organisation to promote to more snr roles and be prepared to take a risk, there are lots of talented people looking for that next step

    Pros

    Senior management has caught up to the fact that the company's strength comes from its people, therefore have been actively supporting the personal and professional development of employees, I feel that they are sincere in this effort. It is also a matter of personal responsibility and having the right attitude, of oneself taking charge.

    Cons

    What senior management has realized needs to be permeated to local management, it is still very hard to advance because the lack of resources, human and infrastructure, is not coming at a faster pace; there is still a lot of work to do on this front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick up the pace at which better resources are provided at all levels.
