    No Career Opportunity

    Senior Accountant (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsVery stable company and the location in midtown is ideal. Coworkers were amicable
    Tools to do the position were very accessible and made it easy to do your job

    ConsDirection
    Management sometimes changes direction without telling the individual contributors.
    layoffs all the time. The company is always concentrating on meeting the bottom line at the expense of the employees who they do not seem to value very much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company can be a good company to work for if the focus is to make it a place where people can have a career versus just a job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    OK place to work, but senior management very old school

    Senior Software Architect (Current Employee)
    Alpharetta, GA

    ProsGood Pay
    Good Benefits
    Flexible Work environment
    Interesting problems and technology to work with

    ConsSenior management does not understand technology
    Very old school use of technology
    Processes put in place now make it take weeks to just get a server or desktop upgraded. Things that should take 10 minutes now take weeks to get done.
    Schedules are a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some people into leadership positions that are forward looking when it comes to technology. Try to come to an understanding that Equifax is a technology company dealing with all the issues and opportunities that come from dealing with Big Data. We don't need anymore ex-GE people running the company, with the amount of data we have and deal with, we need ex-Facebook, ex-Google people working for the company that have a vision of what is possible with all the data we have. Try to move us into the 21st century and stop using a 1980 model of technology and processing of data.

    Good but changing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat, committed associates who are willing to help, willing to share ideas, etc.

    ConsMajor cultural shift in a key segment leading to several key leaders "retiring" early. Ambiguity in true direction and double digit ++++ growth objectives causing much head-scratching.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou hired some talented folks from outside. But they don't "get" data, don't understand how our customers are utilizing to drive results. Balance external hires with internal talent.

    It's a large company that is very conservative.

    Director (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsEquifax is a large company and has good benefits. Equifax has decent technology and really good people for the most part.

    ConsLarge company. States that it is a meritocracy; however, if you do a great job and exceed expectations, it might be "calibrated" down to meets expectations. Communication is often, but it's sometimes what they want the employees to hear. Location is in midtown which is not great for someone in the northern suburbs.

    This is the most disorganized and confusing company around

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsHaving the Equifax name on your resume'

    ConsThere is absolutely no training. When it comes to promotions, it's know what you know...it's not even who you know - it's who likes you. Sharing of information is minimal. For a technology information company, it leaves a lot to be desired

    Advice to Senior ManagementBet it together

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
