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

    Former Employee - Project Manager IV in Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at Equifax full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
