    Pros

    Visionary 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

    Cons

    Employee 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 Management

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

    Pros

    I get rewarded for delivering on promises and executing projects. Rather than getting blamed for taking risks, I am encouraged to take more. I am surrounded by intelligent people and am encouraged to lead them.

    Cons

    We do a horrible job of demand management and so we always have more work than we can finish. At times the matrix organization makes it difficult to get things done without significant coordination.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow leadership and stop outsourcing so much middle career work to contractors and offshore.

    Pros

    I worked with some very nice people who have become life long friends. They hire people of quality and morals, not just anyone. My superiors were very fair. The raises came when expected. My hours were flexible and fair. I worked in a fast paced environment where there was plenty of work to be done. I learned a lot of skills while working there. I would definitely still be working there, but being a military family, we had to move.

    Cons

    The only thing bad I have to say about my experience was that I occasionally had to work on Saturdays. That is really the only thing I didn't like.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Ethical business practices, freedom to succeed with self initiative. Has the small company feel even though it has grown up.

    Cons

    Pay at risk is a bit high in bonus structure vs salary. Somewhat large amount of unstructured/unplanned work leads to a large percentage of firefighter type work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose the small company feeling

    Pros

    Equifax 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.

    Cons

    Corporate 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 Management

    Kill the "Connections" program.
