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

Pros

Leader in their markets - data solutions
Strong global growth strategies
Making significant improvement in execution of strategic growth initiatives

Cons

Use of "one team" and "meritocracy" are sound bytes that sound good, but c-suite doesn't execute what they say. Rolled-out "connections" global broad banding compensation plans that resulted in significant reductions in incentive compensation. C-suite awards themselves with high performance marks, large raises, significant stock grants & options (50% of total 2012 went to c-suite) whereas everyone else must fit into bell curve and most receive 2-3% merit increases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Eliminate buzz words and begin treating and rewarding employees as if they were your #1 assets.

    Pros

    Very flexable work environment. The ability to work from home in most locations. In the beginning of employment with this company the incentives had me pumped-up. The sky was the limit! If you worked hard you got what you worked for.

    Cons

    The overall salary is pretty low considering the pay cuts in incentives year after year (last 3 years) . Few pay increases or very low increase (2% or less per year). Commission and bonuses are depleting year after year to the point that there will be none as the goals on most quota are unattainable or out of your control. The health care cost has jumped up by almost 40% per pay period with less coverage in 2013.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your employees achieve record breaking profits don't decrease incentive plans and increase heath care cost. This will only bring morale down.
