    I have been working at Equifax full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Tons of room to grow and change career paths without changing companies, compensation, 401k match, multiple health insurance plans to choose from, bonus, and most of all, due to the company transformation you get to learn and apply cutting edge cloud technologies at a large scale.

    Cons

    Building greenfield solutions is a headache with all the compliance controls associated with consumer data

    Pros

    Long term Longevity - if you're a full time employee, Equifax will do what it can to help you move up and around the company Employee Resource Groups - Equifax has a lot of ERGs and if you can't find the one for you, they'll help you get it up and running. I love being a part of the many different groups (Equifax Pride, Sustainability, Black Employees & Allies, etc.) Technology Transformation - We're currently going through a huge tech transformation...like 7 years of change in 2 years huge. We've already migrated away from MS Office and now completely operate on GSuite and Gmail. We're also in the process of moving entirely to the cloud which is pretty cutting edge for Equifax's industry Good People-I've made some great friends here. People want you to be happy and to succeed. Good Culture - We have cultural celebrations for all kinds of things (Chinese New Year, Black History Month, etc) Stable - We didn't have any full-time employee layoffs from Covid!

    Cons

    It's a corporation...so sometimes things move slowly and can be frustrating

    Pros

    Overall, Equifax is a good place to work.

    They need to do a better job of paying fairly. I know my male counterpart made $35K more than me for the same work.

    I have been working at Equifax

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, Attempting to be more a more progressive company and move past just being a stodgy credit bureau.

    Cons

    Most companies have been allowing their employees to work from home now for several months and Equifax is no exception. What is surprising is that we are being asked to come back in so we can collaborate and yet no one is able to do that with social distancing. The truth is that although some departments may benefit to some degree by collaborating, others do not. Why ask people to come to an office if they can’t get near anyone anyway? There appears to be no issues with the performance of those working from home so why force people back? If Equifax wants to be a progressive company, their draconian policies of forcing people back in an office seem outdated. Google, Twitter and others are allowing 100% remote work regardless of when Covid is no longer an issue. This is not the time to force people into an office just because you can. If you want to be the progressive data and analytics company, then look at your outdated policies and consider that you are still acting like this is 1990. My generation does not need to sit in an office to perform. Have some faith and trust in your employees that they will perform without being forced into an office. We can work effectively from any location which also includes our own spaces.

    I worked at Equifax full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were decent as long as you knew the right people. Very political... Performance reviews, didn't really review your performance, but more of a likability test...

    Cons

    Equifax is a public company, and sometimes we have to tell our shareholders a small amount of the shady stuff we do....But, mostly we don't have to tell them the really bad stuff...LOL
