    I have been working at Equifax

    Pros

    Money - this is the ONLY good thing about the job and its not worth it.

    Cons

    Treated like a slave. No life/work balance. You can't tell if the company is run by Equifax or IBM or offshore. Constant threat of layoffs or outsourcing. Offshore coding has ruined the Production environment. People are rude to each other on conference calls when trying to resolve issues ANS there are CONSTANT issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make up your mind - if you want to outsource and offshore DO IT - stop threatening it. It is not a motivator contrary to most of management. Fire IBM and get rid of offshore poor quality code. It will cost more at first, but in the long run you will keep loyal employees - ans those are VERY few.

    When the economy gets better there will be a load sucking sound coming from Alpharetta - that will be the giant vacuum as everyone jumps ship.

    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.
