I worked at Equifax

Pros

When I first joined the company, they promoted employee development, work/life balance, a pension, and other elements that demonstrated that the organization valued their employees. Gradually and after a change in senior leadership, it became apparent that the company valued its margins much, much more than its people. To me, lay-offs indicate poor leadership - period.

Cons

Weak leadership that does not value its people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop letting your vendors run the company. Have the strength and integrity to meet challenges head-on. Value your people - they ARE the organization.

    I worked at Equifax

    Pros

    The pay was pretty good for the level of responsibility I had at Equifax and the commute was not horrible.

    Cons

    Incompetent management, totally political environment, long work hours, shifting requirements, constant drive to cut costs, short staffed, no product vision, not open to new ideas or methods of operation. Management constantly made every employee feel that their job was at risk in order to "enhance productivity". Overall, just a miserable pit of a place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The overall attitude of management is that they have all the answers and that the folks who acutally "run the business" are just meaningless drones. My advice: get over yourself. Get some humility and stop belittling those who enable you to collect your multi-million dollar salaries.

    I have been working at Equifax

    Pros

    Good Benfits, 401k Match, Insurance options, AIP
    Work/Life Balance, Telecommuting Option
    Good People, Friendly, Team Oriented
    Good Opportunities
    Solid Company

    Cons

    Threat of outsourcing hurts morale throughout the Organization
    Short Term Focus
    Lack of clear career path, HR process is disconnected
    Limited Training opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on boosting morale. Surveys will not necessarily tell you what is broken, because the surveys are broken. Make sure our most talented employees who are carrying the load are being rewarded. Equal work deserves equal pay, twice the work does not.
