Pros

Equifax has good benefits, decent salaries, and clean, convenient office locations.

Cons

The company is severely understaffed, with many broken systems and processes. Senior management appears to be clueless or apathetic as to how to run the company, and does not respect the contributions of lower-level employees. There are restructurings every year that cause even more silos and confusion. Senior leaders cling to LEAN methodology to drive out costs and inefficiencies for everything except top heavy hiring. Current hiring consists of more senior management, but very few line employees to do the heavy lifting. The focus now seems to be on "looking good," but not showing actual skill or results.

Advice to Management

Senior leadership could benefit from a huge dose of humility. Listen to and reward line staff. Treat them the way you'd want to be treated at that level in your career. In addition, many of the senior level positions are simply redundant (particularly in sales and marketing) and should be eliminated. Instead of paying huge salaries for little work output, reinvest into the systems and processes necessary to run the business more efficiently.

    Pros

    flexibility, location, people are mostly good

    They are taking away all sorts of benefits

    Advice to Management

    start listening to what the employees are saying. Having 15-20 great employees leave the past few months should tell you everything you need to know. Pay more
