    Pros

    Visionary company. Equifax is in the position for great growth. Company has a clear focus on being the industry leader.

    Management is very good and shows that they care for the employees. Company has significantly invested in the office environment and is making huge strides in employee engagement.

    Company has a very good culture

    Cons

    Employee awareness as to their career opportunities has been an issue in the past.

    The leadership team acknowledged this issue and has been making adjustments & investments into the HR systems and creating a framework that will inform all people programs, including talent development, performance management and compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You have fostered a great culture and have the company firing on all pistons to drive future growth.

    Pros

    If you want to be able to work remote they have the tools and encourage it. Use State of the Art technology.

    Cons

    Too matrixed and people don't want to speak up to affect change. No one is willing to make difficult decisions and if you are not part of the corporate office you don't stand a chance at being successful.

    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Interesting work
    Pay is fine

    Cons

    Overworked on a daily basis

    Advice to Management

    If you want earnings to stay up, you need to hire more ppl. You are overworking the entire firm for Wall Street

    Notice how many VERY good people have left in recent months (12-18 mths) - this is a good firm we have the cash - hire more people and keep the good people

    Pros

    Able to learn and interact with a team of co-workers with different skill sets.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities. Promotions are given to those who are popular and not based on merit. Forced to develop on your own. No opportunity to improve with additional certifications.

    Advice to Management

    Be respectful of others. Provide a work life balance that is fair and adequate. Promote others based on merit. Health care benefits is very limited with only a choice of two healthcare providers and very expensive.

    Pros

    Great location, tuition reimbursement and training provided.

    Cons

    While professional, the environment is very stuffy. If you are not a senior leader you are treating like you don't matter. Recognition is terrible! although they say they want to invest in the employees and train them, Equifax still hires outside of the company instead of hiring within. Raises; don't expect it. Perks for senior leaders only. Don't trust co workers either everyone is trying to look out for themselves. Not a team oriented environment.

    Pros

    Dependable and comfortable. Very conservative for obvious reasons as credit bureau, offering reliable financial security to employees.

    Cons

    Too risk averse in approaching marketplace in general, lacking creativity. Rigid in pricing models, slow to market, scalability of new solutions. Almost literally the antithesis of entrepreneurial.

    Advice to Management

    Look outside the same old organizational confines for product direction, acquisition targets and management recruiting. Promoting from within is rewarding for tenured staff but limits stretching organization to grow in new ways.

    Pros

    ok pay, brand recognition goes a long way

    Cons

    Better be in the boys club or you will soon be fearful of your job and HR just supports and protects executive leadership and intimidates

    Advice to Management

    Resign tomorrow. Your stock price is only up because you are squeezing every last drop of blood you can and not paying people property. There is no place to go but down.

    Pros

    Great people. Strong culture centered around growth and new product innovation. New culture has GE influence brought in from Rick Smith.

    Cons

    Older technology and legacy systems need upgrading and not a lot of focus on core infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    More focus on innovations that directly benefit clients and profits will take care of themselves.
