Yeah, maybe

Senior Director (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Equifax full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat data to analyze: if you want "big data", Equifax has it. Really smart co-workers, some of whom will bend over backwards to be helpful.

ConsSales/revenue-driven company to exclusion of all else. Management continually re-organizing. Maintaining stock price is paramount. Long term plans sound good but appear to lack the "voice of data customer": management 'sees' the future but doesn't hear the voice of employees actually using/working with the data.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you'd only listen to the people working with the data, you'd know a lot more about EFX's potential. As it is, management appears to hear only what it wants to hear.

Overall experience was good. Corporate culture is still a bit old school. Processes and procedures evolving but behind.

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Alpharetta, GA

I worked at Equifax full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSolid company, great executive leadership, strong financials.

ConsProcesses and procedures dated, still very manual by industry standards,

Advice to Senior ManagementLess reactivity. Strive to establish process standards what will promote a smooth and sustainable operating rhythm.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Just okay, nothing exceptional.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Equifax full-time

ProsGreat co-workers. The company tries to implement ways to make things better for the employees by creating ways to show appreciation.

ConsThe pay could be better and opportunities for advancement are slim if you do not associate with the right people.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that you were once an in the same shoes as your subordinates. Appreciate your employees more and take a leadership class.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great people who try really hard but mid-level management can't get out of their way

Business Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at Equifax full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork autonomously; trusted to do my job
Co-workers are good people
Well paid for my position
Investors are happy and company is financially sound

ConsNot given the latest technology to do our jobs.
Systems are not kept up to date
No long term software solution vision; implementations just meet the current need
No enterprise wide software tools; all silo-ed solutions
No employee training programs for new technology.
No path for promotion. New skills are hired from outside not trained from inside.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue the employees you have and invest in them to grow with your company.
Start looking for enterprise wide solutions for internal systems
Online presence and web functionality customers should be better.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good growth prospect if you network and know people inside.

Director (Current Employee)
Alpharetta, GA

I have been working at Equifax full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood bonus and pay. Cannot think of anything else.

Conslack of transparency from upper management, hard work and talent does not get rewarded. Lot of incompetent people get promoted due to their networking and knowing the "right people". Absolute lack of job related training.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut down the reorgs and favoritisms. Employees are losing faith in the upper management due to the lack of transparency

Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at Equifax full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLots of opportunity to move positions and career growth available
