    I have been working at Equifax full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of room to grow in your career, upper management is very responsive to goals; great team environment, younger crowd

    Cons

    The company is very focused on growth and the bottom line, so job stability is not always a concern. They will occasionally do random firings for unnecessary positions. Slow to back fill.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management can look more towards rewarding the employees that are driving this growth directly through bonuses instead of focusing on payouts at a higher level.

    Pros

    Boss was in Atlanta, very nice work-life balance, they were ok with doctor's appointments and such as long as the work got done.

    Cons

    They canned all the contractors at the same time for people in Costa Rica, who do not do the work as well as we did.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the contractors, hire them full time and pay accordingly. If your data isn't good, companies will stop paying for it.

    I worked at Equifax (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flex time, location, easy commute

    Cons

    Environment is not employee friendly unless you are at the main HQ. There isn't much commitment to anything other than bottom line profit, even to the point of drastically reducing overhead costs at the expense of the employees and facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the people that perform the work that is sold. As more people leave the service will drop and you'll wonder why customers aren't as happy with the work anymore.

    Pros

    I found the company to offer Great benefits, there are some great people there, the pay is very fair with yearly employess evaluations

    Cons

    Need to work long hours to make an impact to promotion, there are some politics as with every company, sometimes will get pigeon holed into one job

    Advice to Management

    None, keep empowering your employees to contribute to the success of the company; it's all about the people. Take care of the people and your product, everything else will take care of itself

    There are alot of great people to work with. I love the flex hours available. The onsite facilities are also convenient. This is a great place to start a career.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and really nice people to work with. There were also many opportunities for professional development with seminars monthly. There was a lot of opportunity to learn more about the company and the clients they served.

    Cons

    These positions have horrible pay and consultants are pushed to complete a specified number of calls. The calls kept growing but people were never permitted for overtime. This wasn't too big of a deal but it did kinda rush work and probably decreased quality.
