    Outstanding Company

    Senior Director (Current Employee) Alpharetta, GA

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

    Management is very good and shows that they care for the employees. Company has significantly invested in the office environment and is making huge strides in employee engagement.

    Company has a very good culture

    ConsEmployee awareness as to their career opportunities has been an issue in the past.

    The leadership team acknowledged this issue and has been making adjustments & investments into the HR systems and creating a framework that will inform all people programs, including talent development, performance management and compensation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. You have fostered a great culture and have the company firing on all pistons to drive future growth.

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

    Great opportunity for growth & recognition

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    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.

    Senior Director

    Senior Director (Current Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    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

    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...).
