Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Pays fairly well and the benefits were good, although expensive. Many employees work from home. Vacation plan is generally good.

Cons

Bad systems, lack of support, disconnected management, poor training, slow to fix problems. The expectations are high, but you won't have the tools to get the job done. Just when you figure something out, they will change it and not for the better.

Advice to Management

Treat employees and customers as you would like to be treated.

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

    Pros

    It's a job.
    Steady paycheck
    Minimal work required.
    Heavily favors African Americans

    Cons

    Employees rewarded only for length of employment
    No place for new ideas
    Innovation is a word in the dictionary.
    Risk takers and new ideas are mired in bureaucracy. Want to get an idea contributed? Prepare a business case that only a CFO can understand in 200 pages or more. Don't forget the carbon paper.
    Employees provided with outdated, underpowered technology secured by Gestapo - like security.
    Pay is nothing special.
    Senior management concerned about their own stock rewards and won't make any deciions without first consulting their stock culture.
    Management should be put out to pasture, they retire when they get too I'll and stay past retirement age.
    Want office supplies? typical request to fulfill takes 3 months for anything other than a paper clip.
    Did I mention bureacracy?
    Lots of big titles, no support staff. This results in nothing ever getting done.
    Marketing is a bad word.
    Suppression of employee enthusiasm
    HR incompetent with too much control in org. Ever see an HR chief office next to CEOs?
    No investment in marketing, new product debelopment,employee training.
    Employees have no personality.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the roses. Outdated management style. GE is not god. Stop cooking the books before Wall Street wakes up.
