    Pros

    Experian is the biggest in the consumer credit services, so its a big name. New hire get good salary.

    Cons

    like other global companies, you see lots, you just see.. never get. one account do good, another doesn't, so its all get normalized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please don't confuse employees, probably they have intention of outsourcing some departments.not very secure job.

    Pros

    Company strives to hire the smartest people in the industry. You will get a chance to work with the best and learn something new every day.

    Cons

    Business does not have clear direction and has missed market trends repeatedly.

    Chaotic and fast past environment does not allow engineers to perform proper design and implementation. Too many issues with production systems puts the entire staff into a never-ending spiral of dealing with production issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to consider replacing top leadership on the business side.
