Have a question about Experian? Get answers from others who know this company!

Company Culture

Experian has a very inclusive and supportive culture that pushes its members to continuous growth and development. It’s fun!

Teamwork

Every workplace has its outliers but this place promotes a positive team attitude and environment.

Freedom to work independently

Definitely challenges you to bring your own ideas to work.

Internal Communication

Does a good job communicating and taking and incorporating feedback.

Gender Equality

Women in leadership is something youll find often. They reward results.

Attitude towards older colleagues

i have known and been mentored by several people in this category. There is definite opportunity for all wmployyes here.

Career Development

They do a great job coaching and promoting development, but they also consider your role and how your personality and skills match up to that role. Not everyone is cut out for the same job but that doesn’t mean they won’t find a great fit in a different department. I’ve seen many folks move across the units to find a perfect match.

Overall compensation for your work

Pretty decent benefits and compensation.

Office / Work Environment

Standing desks are my favorite.

Environmental Friendliness

In every kitchenette.

Work-Life Balance

Always encourages work life balance.

Company Image

I love working here. I’ve been with the company for 3 years and I hope to stay much longer.

Challenging Work

I work with business clients and it can be really challenging some days to balance their interests with those of the company, but our teams challenge us to really raise the standard and deliver excellence.

Inclusive / Diverse

5 stars on this one, no question. They actively work towards this as a goal, to develop and expose us to diversity in many forms.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Nimbleness would be an added benefit as mentioned before.

What I like about the company

Team building events can be both jovial and rewarding. For a few years now, our team has volunteered with Thomas House in Southern California. We’ve painted apartments for incoming residents, organized a pantry, and decorated for Halloween. But it’s the fact that the company balances meaningful events like this with beach trips meant solely for the employees, that really makes the difference. I love the positive environment in the office, but it is bolstered by the experience we get outside the office too.

What I dislike about the company

I think they have some issues like any other office or company, but I do find that in most cases they do their best with honest feedback to resolve those issues. The size of the company does sometimes mean that the execution takes some time though. They could do a little better learning from the flexibility and nimbleness of some smaller organizations.

  • Value the employees like myself who gave so much and don’t use people for their advice then let them go

What I like about the company

The overall company was great to work for, but at the call center level there was too much backstabbing and micro management going on. Other then that there was room to grow all over the company as long as you had a degree

What I dislike about the company

To much micro management going on gossiping, backstabbing

  • I don't know of any improvements to mention.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed (I'm retired now) going to work everyday. I worked in the IT department for Experian. They are well known in the Credit Bureau business, which made me proud to work there. Also, I enjoyed working with my Team and I had the "Best" Manager, ever, which also added to enjoying my job.

What I dislike about the company

I honestly, can not think of anything, that I disapproved of . I really, enjoyed the years I worked there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • New middle management with degrees often hire their friends, who don't have any experience in the field. Promotions are more likely to be given based on who you know rather than how well you do your job.

What I like about the company

They often have employee events.

What I dislike about the company

Upper management is disconnected from the process.
