    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Sales/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 ManagementAdvice

    If 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Good bonus and pay. Cannot think of anything else.

    Cons

    lack 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Business Analyst

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Value 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.
