    Pros

    Equifax is a truly fantastic company to work for. I started in 2010 and have not even thought about looking for another company to work for during that time. Equifax is continually growing and seeking out ways to help their employees better their careers. My colleagues are top-notch and the leadership team is strong. I am thankful to have found such a great company to be a part of!

    Cons

    As with any company, there are things that Equifax is continually working to improve on, but overall I believe they do an excellent job and I don't have any specific cons or complaints.

    Pros

    Lot's of change and growth which opens up opportunities for advancement. Great work-life balance, very competitive pay. Leadership has heart and tries to always "do the right thing". CEO is a true visionary.

    Cons

    Management is not as transparent and we have a trickle down approach to communication in some parts of the company which leads to inconsistent messaging.

    Pros

    Even though this is a 100 year old company, we are NOT old. Equifax has changed the way we think and have grasped on to new technology and new thinking. Equifax empowers their employees and it makes a huge difference to not go through so much red tape. We can get things done as we're empowered. The people are awesome and really want Equifax to succeed. This is a very diverse company and welcomes new/diverse ideas.

    Cons

    Office space is over crowded and basically no privacy at all.

    Pros

    Well paid for the work. Some not all positions receive bonuses which are generous. Most direct bosses are fair and equal. Equifax promotes from within and has in place training standards that allow you to move up and vertically. This company promotes on merit and training not on gender, race etc. Equifax will help pay for additional higher education. Most positions require college degree.

    Cons

    Most positions require a college degree, which in some cases I believe overlooks some valuable employees due to lack of degree. This keeps some mature employees from joining Equifax and does not always just look at experience.

    Advice to Management

    To keep up the great attitude that employees do matter and we as the collective are the ones that get the job done and keep Equifax moving forward.

    Pros

    This is a very fast-paced environment with challenging work. Management has always had my back. The company has a high moral code and has a strong vision for the future.

    Cons

    There are some employees that are not willing to accept change and some groups that make very siloed decisions based on what is best for them. This can make it difficult for the people who are trying to move the company forward.

    Advice to Management

    It may be time to deal with the people who aren't willing to change.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, ability to work from home when needed, great teams, very competitive pay and benefits, managers that encourage growth and advancement.

    Cons

    There are not many cons to my employment at Equifax. From the CEO down, the managers are very involved in the growth of their teams and advancement of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build the morale that all employees are important and have the ability to grow and be successful, and let that practice continue to spread enterprise wide.

    Pros

    I have been impressed by management's leadership which is strong, fair, and intentional. There is accountability and an expectation of performance and growth. It is a highly collaborative atmosphere. The company also seems to reward employees when the company is successful. I particularly enjoy my colleagues as well as my department which is run transparently and with true concern for the employee holistically. In my department, employees are given a fair bit of autonomy as well as flexibility particularly around working remotely. The company has a strong corporate citizenship program and matches employee donations to charities from $50-$5,000.

    Cons

    The culture at corporate headquarters (Atlanta) seems stiff and dry. Benefits are less generous than my former employers. Depending on your field, opportunities for career advancement can be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make strides in recognizing employee contributions. Learn from the culture at Equifax Workforce Solutions and add some fun to the atmosphere. There's still some work to be done on the benefits side as well.
