    I worked at Equifax full-time

    Pros

    Steady employment, benefits. Paid time off has to be repaid by working til the end of each year.

    Cons

    Office cleanliness and insect issues. The insect issue was addressed by management, but the residual insecticide caused allergy sensitive people to get sick

    Advice to Management

    Clean the air ducts in the office and the cubicles. Stop using the insecticide.

    I have been working at Equifax full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Equifax is a truly fantastic company to work for. I started in 2010 and have not even thought about looking for another company to work for during that time. Equifax is continually growing and seeking out ways to help their employees better their careers. My colleagues are top-notch and the leadership team is strong. I am thankful to have found such a great company to be a part of!

    Cons

    As with any company, there are things that Equifax is continually working to improve on, but overall I believe they do an excellent job and I don't have any specific cons or complaints.

    Pros

    Great job on paper. Good benefits and pretty good pay.

    Cons

    Is anyone remotely happy here? Equifax will make you a great offer, but wave goodbye to joy. Strange that everyone has been with the company for 10+ years and they just walk around glassyeyed and dead inside. It's the easiest job I've had by far (Account Manager) but wow is it boring. The people who have been around forever act like they are at home not at work. Very High School.

    Advice to Management

    Smile once and awhile. Maybe lose the managers that have been there for decades and hire some personality.

    I have been working at Equifax full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of change and growth which opens up opportunities for advancement. Great work-life balance, very competitive pay. Leadership has heart and tries to always "do the right thing". CEO is a true visionary.

    Cons

    Management is not as transparent and we have a trickle down approach to communication in some parts of the company which leads to inconsistent messaging.

    I have been working at Equifax full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Even though this is a 100 year old company, we are NOT old. Equifax has changed the way we think and have grasped on to new technology and new thinking. Equifax empowers their employees and it makes a huge difference to not go through so much red tape. We can get things done as we're empowered. The people are awesome and really want Equifax to succeed. This is a very diverse company and welcomes new/diverse ideas.

    Cons

    Office space is over crowded and basically no privacy at all.

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

    Pros

    Management team is focused on growing the company and increasing shareholder value. Stock price has more than quadrupled in my relatively short time with the company.

    Cons

    Very focused on growth, not as focused on maintaining the systems that are already in the environment. Lacks process maturity in key technical areas.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the organization of your IT environment. Too many silos and too many decision makers operating independently vs working together for common goals.

    I have been working at Equifax full-time

    Pros

    Well paid for the work. Some not all positions receive bonuses which are generous. Most direct bosses are fair and equal. Equifax promotes from within and has in place training standards that allow you to move up and vertically. This company promotes on merit and training not on gender, race etc. Equifax will help pay for additional higher education. Most positions require college degree.

    Cons

    Most positions require a college degree, which in some cases I believe overlooks some valuable employees due to lack of degree. This keeps some mature employees from joining Equifax and does not always just look at experience.

    Advice to Management

    To keep up the great attitude that employees do matter and we as the collective are the ones that get the job done and keep Equifax moving forward.

    Pros

    If you do well, the financial reward is great. The people are great to work with as well.

    Cons

    At times, it can seem that the internal processes and communication between departments are a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    The Director position is kept busy with too many meetings. They don't have enough time to focus on their people.

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

    Pros

    Management tries to engage with employees.

    Cons

    They would rather see their experienced employees leave than pay the same pay as someone off the street who does not know the company.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through with what you say. Improve communication.
