Terrible, terrible place to work. Nothing good to say about this employer. Layoffs a plenty. Medical insurance expensive

Customer Care Representative (Former Employee)

ProsThere is only one pro, you learn about credit reports. Terrible, terrible place to work. Nothing good to say about this employer. Layoffs a plenty. Medical insurance expensive

Very political And not customer focused

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Brea, CA

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

ProsBig company and overall good benefits...HR is draconian and to be avoided at all costs...poor leadership and token employee ism is evident

ConsCEO and senior management are bullies and needs a lesson in humility...worked there for 15 years and saw new crop of mgmt and "leaders" drive business into the ground...poor leadership. If they focused on true business and not busy-ness!

Advice to Senior ManagementLose the GE mentality...that is an outdated style that needs to be dropped.

ProsOnce your hired on you have a low possibly of being let go, easy job, good employees

Conslow wages, not much room for growth, doing the same thing over and over, management really plays by favoritism.

Advice to Senior Managementset up more room for growth, commission or bonus's for meeting goals, for learning more queues you should have an increase in the wages as your doing more work

Good company if you are not looking for career growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

ConsEquifax 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 Senior ManagementMore 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
