A decent port in a bad economy; just make sure it is temporary.

Pros

Equifax offers many of the standard benefits you come to expect: health, dental, PTO.

Cons

Equifax is like allot of entrenched corporations. Middle managers accomplish more through social engineering than actually making a compelling case for new or more creative strategies.

It explains that brutal turnover in their Alpharetta office. Once a new senior executive is named, you are either part of their entourage of sycophants or you aren't.

In a nutshell, Equifax is not a meritocracy. You either thrive in that environment or you don't.

Advice to Management

Eat your own dog food. You should periodically ask an employee to make a request of one of your departments via telephone, while you observe. If you make a request on your own behalf, a manager will intercept it and make sure your receive world class treatment; you'll be clueless.

    Pros

    Many hard working employees who take pride in what they do
    Good work/life balance
    Programs in place to reward excellent performance

    Cons

    Equifax experience will depend on the business unit you work in
    Very difficult to move up in the company if you are at a lower level
    While programs are in place to reward performance, not enough done to aid in growth

    Advice to Management

    More should be done to develop talent within the company instead of frequently bringing in people from the outside. Hope new HR program will address this issue, it's now too early to tell.

  2. Great Public Company, but Nothing Exciting

    Pros

    The environment is very professional. There are many bright people who work here. There has been a push to really create a meritocracy at the company so that exceptional work is rewarded.

    Cons

    While professional, the work environment can seem "stuffy". Management is hesitant to invest in needed technology to make work easier and more efficient. Some progress is being made there, but an information company should be more current.
