I worked at Equifax

Pros

Pension Plan was in place when I was there - great
Benefits were very good
Independent work environment - outside sales
Encouraged Family time
Training was excellent

Cons

Upper Management - Ivory Tower Syndrome
Ostrich with a head in the sand approach to a lot of problems
Drink the koolaid mentality of IT - nothing can be wrong - it makes me laugh when I see the IT awards they get undeservedly and makes me wonder if the employees of the IT mags in Atl that are always ranking them so high are in bed with Equifax - or just want a job there.
Legal and any department for that matter will kill a project if they don't like an employee that is working on it - see it done - heard em laugh about it.
Internal support employees are always walking around or not at their desk - makes it impossible to get anything done
Will run a sweat shop if they think they can get away with it.
Blatant disregard of the consumers whose information they "steward". They aren't concerned about errors in their data base they just want business from the commecial sector.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop drinking the Koolaide the employees are giving you - Really - any given day, Please call random phone extensions during the day of your corporate and tech center for internal sales/service support and see how many people actually answer their phones or are at their desk -It will be eye opening!

    I have been working at Equifax

    Pros

    If you are very good, you will stand out. But, little room for advancement, salaries are competitive. You can easily stay long at this company if you want to coast by.

    Cons

    Management does not allow you to do your job. Very micro-managed. Technology team is not top rate for a technology company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act on your words to develop your people. Keep pay good, but get rid of those who don't add value, make managers make tough decisions

    I worked at Equifax

    Pros

    A vast array of high-end hardware and software technologies
    Well positioned in the information markets - for consumer and small business
    Quite innovative in their usage of technology, creation of new markets, and creation of new products
    Strong financial position - cash and assets. They have a good operating margin.
    They have strong operations around the globe, the US of course, but also Latin America and Europe

    Cons

    Very hierarchical, not collaborative
    Finance, purchasing, and legal constrains organizational agility and delivery of quick business results through slow, bureaucratic processes - even though they have integrated ERP systems
    Outsources every position possible - your job may be next

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the good people below you do their job. They're smarter then you, they'll run the business, and you'll make more money
