Great opportunity for growth & recognition

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsEquifax provides a great opportunity for growth within the company for high performers. They value experience as well as welcome and support innovative ideas. Equifax rewards employees for big achievements and provides recognition that lends itself to great morale. They are good at communicating the status of the company with employees are are very transparent into what's going on within the company - whether it's exciting things or obstacles we need to overcome.

ConsCorporate policies can slow down processes at time - just like any other large company. The new program called "Connections" was intended to provide employees insight into their career opportunities in the company, but has ended up being more discouraging as you see how "low" you are rather than seeing that possibilities to move up. However, this is actually not representative of how the company provides opportunities - there are a lot of possibilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementKill the "Connections" program.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Senior Director

Senior Director (Current Employee)
Alpharetta, GA

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

ProsVisionary company. Equifax is in the position for great growth. Company has a clear focus on being the industry leader.

Management is very good.

Company has a very good culture

ConsThere are a lot of people that have been with the company for 20 - 40 years. While this is a good thing, some ideas are hard to advance. New management has addressed this issue and we are consistently pushed to think outside the box.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to do what you do. Knowing that there are limited opportunities for vertical advancement, as in most companies, look for horizontal advancement opportunities.

Very happy and would recommend to anyone.

Senior Director (Current Employee)
Alpharetta, GA

I have been working at Equifax

ProsEquifax maintains a great worklife balance. I have been given a great deal of opportunity to show my capabilies and develop new ones. Initially I was worried about working for a smaller company, but I have found it to be a big family.

ConsAlthough the long tenure of many of the associates shows that this is a great company, many people may be "stuck" in their ways.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to do what you are doing. Challenge the status quo. Maybe relax & empower the associates to work more remotely, given certain qualifications (tenure, performance, connectivity, etc...).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
