    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Interesting work
    Pay is fine

    Cons

    Overworked on a daily basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want earnings to stay up, you need to hire more ppl. You are overworking the entire firm for Wall Street

    Notice how many VERY good people have left in recent months (12-18 mths) - this is a good firm we have the cash - hire more people and keep the good people

    I have been working at Equifax full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn how to work hard at this company with barely any benefit. It is very good experience and if you have the willingness to learn more there might just be an opportunity for you. Upper management isn't always on the ball but they still keep it rolling...slowly.

    Cons

    The workplace is very busy. Goals may seem a bit out of reach at times, but they are attainable. Leadership is not always capable of keeping employees productive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't settle for mediocrity.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Good work life balance. Job stability

    Cons

    Little room for advancement due to the fact that management doesn't want to train new employees to fill vacancy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees to advance their careers within the company.

    Pros

    Some of the most collaborative folks I've worked with.

    Cons

    Seriously lacking in innovation and opportunities for advancement. So when a great employee maxes out in current role, they leave for more stimulation.

    Pros

    Compensation is good, time off is flexible and the beneifts are good. There are some changes that have happened but it appears to be moving in a more positive direction.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency from upper management is an issue. Additionally there is a clear deliniation between jobs and levels here. One certainly knows where one is in the pecking order. And sometimes it is quite uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think outside the box. Promote from within. And treat people like you care. It would be easier to like this job if we were not constantly watching jobs be sent offshore. AskHr, AskLegal, when a person has a question for HR they do not want to have an answer from an anonymous person in India.

    Pros

    Stability. This organization has done a great job of navigating through a difficult economic climate.

    Cons

    Process heavy, with no wiggle room, even when the process is counter to individual goals / objectives.
    Tight fisted. Very limited on-going training for professional development.

    It should be noted that MANY top performers are leaving, and Senior Management's efforts to keep them are not working. This is an interesting indicator of the culture within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start promoting from within. Promote those employees who have gotten the organization this far, quit bringing in outsiders for management positions.
