Learned about credit. Not sure why I stayed as long as I did, but not a bad job overall

I have been working at Equifax full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Pay was pretty decent for the job, job was relatively easy, and metrics were not hard to meet as long as you are not lazy

Cons

LEAN = zero job security. If you believe in what you are doing, show some sack to the board. There are considerations that have a timeline beyond the end of the current quarter. This isn't the 80's, and you are not Jack Welch.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are considerations that have a timeline beyond the end of the current quarter. This isn't the 80's, and you are not Jack Welch.

I believe you will live to regret outsourcing consumer credit disputes central division if that is in fact what happened after the buyout. Non-native English speakers in different financial system = misunderstandings, badly-written consumer statements = lawsuits. Saw it myself on very (understandably) angry people's reports before my job was presumably shipped to Kolkata.

    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.
