    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    set 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

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

    Pros

    Decent Benefits, unique experience, working with great clients, and a few great managers (if you're lucky enough to get one of them).

    Cons

    Work site is poorly maintained, performance metrics conflict with client needs, system upgrades are rolled out poorly and ineffective middle managers are retained indefinitely.

    Advice to Management

    Use 360 reviews to identify and train ASM's with poor leadership skills, not everything can be quantified into a spreadsheet.

    Support an Open Door Policy, Managers of locations need to realize just because they aren't hearing about an issue, it doesn't mean it's resolved. It could mean your subordinates have given up on talking to you and are looking for work elsewhere.

    Check SMART Goals for loopholes before rolling them out. Setting short sighted goals, based solely upon a number on a report is bad business. Reports are relatively easy to manipulate, some ASM's are quick to do this. It only complicates their subordinates jobs, putting pressure on them to maintain their ASM's façade.

    Understand that where there's smoke, there's fire. If a manager has subordinates complaining to the Ethics Hotline and an excessive amount of conflict, that manager is allowing unproductive behavior to flourish.
