  8. "Toronto office - great place to work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Product Owner in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at Experian full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    As a fairly recent hire, I'm surprised at some of the negative reviews I've seen. From what I've observed, the new management in place for the last year or so is turning around a formerly more conservative shop. They are keen to bring on smart, quality people with a great attitude who are willing to do what it takes, share ideas and bring things to the next level. It's a very small shop which is part of a huge global organization so you get the best of both worlds. Locally, it is an open environment, receptive and encouraging of feedback and new ideas; where you can really make an impact. There's great work-life balance, and an embracing of agile philosophies and new technologies.

    Cons

    Vacation allocation for new hires is max 3 weeks annually for the first 2 years - local office has no flexibility to match your former even if you've been past that for a long while.

    Pros

    This is for the Experian Canada Team: Pros is that they are a Joke! Other Pros...Simply Nothing!! After giving it lots and lots of thought, I could not get any single pros for this company. Other than they think very high about themselves and show themselves as big shop, but end of the day they are just bunch of liars who are trying to save their jobs by showing themselves great to their big brother sitting in USA, UK and Ireland.

    Cons

    They say that they are true AGILE Shop, where as they do not even know ABC of AGILE. They say on face something but they mean something else and the red tape and bureaucracy is simply a dictionary meaning of Experian. Beware to any job seeker to this company, you will simply repent your decision later.
