    I have been working at Experian full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing people, positive flexible but focussed culture, huge breadth of opportunity, you can really make a difference in the company and in society. The company is very ambitious and has a fantastic global platform for growth - there are lots of very positive changes happening and we are starting to emerge from being a data/financial organisation to be a force in technology.

    Cons

    We are quite rightly heavily regulated, so you need to be aware that there's some extra training and diligence required in delivering our services to customers. This protects our data and helps us focus on doing all the right things for clients and consumers - this is a good thing, but can be an adjustment for people coming from different industries.

    I have been working at Experian full-time

    Pros

    Big company, as much work as you want and so means you can be as exposed as you like. You won’t be micro managed or told what to do, your career is your own (but some may not like that). It can feel overwhelming at times but if you can do well here, you can do well anywhere.

    Cons

    Big company, means there can be complex processes or procedures but that is not dissimilar to other large organisations I have worked for.

    Pros

    The recent Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated how robust and agile the organisation is both in terms of continuing to drive business performance but also looking after its people. The diversity of what is done in the business is vast and exciting. Teams and culture I work with are collaborative, action oritentated and driven to succeed!

    Cons

    Needs to drive better global alignment and consistency.
