    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

    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.
