Started out Good, but Ended Badly

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Equifax

ProsEquifax has good benefits, decent salaries, and clean, convenient office locations.

ConsThe company is severely understaffed, with many broken systems and processes. Senior management appears to be clueless or apathetic as to how to run the company, and does not respect the contributions of lower-level employees. There are restructurings every year that cause even more silos and confusion. Senior leaders cling to LEAN methodology to drive out costs and inefficiencies for everything except top heavy hiring. Current hiring consists of more senior management, but very few line employees to do the heavy lifting. The focus now seems to be on "looking good," but not showing actual skill or results.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior leadership could benefit from a huge dose of humility. Listen to and reward line staff. Treat them the way you'd want to be treated at that level in your career. In addition, many of the senior level positions are simply redundant (particularly in sales and marketing) and should be eliminated. Instead of paying huge salaries for little work output, reinvest into the systems and processes necessary to run the business more efficiently.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A typical corporate environment that was fun despite its inefficiencies and constant scramble to make profit goals.

It's a large company that is very conservative.

Pros: Equifax is a large company and has good benefits. Equifax… Cons: Large company. States that it is a meritocracy; however, if you do a great job and exceed expectations, it might be "calibrated" down to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
