    I have been working at Equifax full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good name for your resume, pays on time,comes with benefits if you're willing to put up with the extremely unprofessional work environment.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what they are doing. They tell us over and over to be professional but consistently hire people that are incapable of being professional. I feel like I'm walking into a highschool every time I go to work because of all the drama. They consistently look over the older (I'm only 26) employees with more experience to promote young kids that are barely old enough to drink.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like you care about them, stop with the favoritism, figure out what morale means and work on bringing it higher. Give people a reason to stay there instead of jumping at the first opportunity to leave.

    I have been working at Equifax full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good Pay
    Good Benefits
    Flexible Work environment
    Interesting problems and technology to work with

    Cons

    Senior management does not understand technology
    Very old school use of technology
    Processes put in place now make it take weeks to just get a server or desktop upgraded. Things that should take 10 minutes now take weeks to get done.
    Schedules are a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people into leadership positions that are forward looking when it comes to technology. Try to come to an understanding that Equifax is a technology company dealing with all the issues and opportunities that come from dealing with Big Data. We don't need anymore ex-GE people running the company, with the amount of data we have and deal with, we need ex-Facebook, ex-Google people working for the company that have a vision of what is possible with all the data we have. Try to move us into the 21st century and stop using a 1980 model of technology and processing of data.
