    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.

    I worked at Equifax full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dependable and comfortable. Very conservative for obvious reasons as credit bureau, offering reliable financial security to employees.

    Cons

    Too risk averse in approaching marketplace in general, lacking creativity. Rigid in pricing models, slow to market, scalability of new solutions. Almost literally the antithesis of entrepreneurial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside the same old organizational confines for product direction, acquisition targets and management recruiting. Promoting from within is rewarding for tenured staff but limits stretching organization to grow in new ways.
