Conditions varied quite a bit depending on the manager. 3 out of the 6 I reported to had no interest in allowing people to grow and work life balance was not taken into consideration at all. 2 managers were good to work for and made work life manageable. One 1 manager really stood out as a good leader. They guide there staff on paths that would help them grow and move into better positions.

Pros and Cons
Good benefits, work from home
Work life balance, routine lay offs , no loyalty

Do not work at Experian! I was hired to fill a newly created position. In my 40 year career I never experienced anything more awful than the way I was treated at Experian. Management was not supportive and couldn't be bothered to offer any training. Seems they expected me to learn through osmosis. Really it was the worst year of my life! Best decision I made was to leave!

Pros and Cons
None that I can think of
