    I have been working at Equifax full-time

    Pros

    Some departments are better than others!!!!
    Co-workers are excellent and most are welcoming to new employees who try hard.
    Good departments work hard to create a welcome and fun environment. Pay is comparable. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Constant change for the sake of change, ALWAYS. Some departments seem to have a moving target that is difficult to reach. Top heavy with inadequate promotion ability for lower levels. Some departments have long hours and little recognition for a job well done. Upper management doesn't want to know what is really going on; they are only in interested in colorful charts and numbers. If a department does not produce pretty charts, then it is not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize abilities and encourage progress within established teams and departments rather than having constantly moving management, teams, and ideology. Bring back bonus' for lower level employees. Encourage management to reward team members with advancement rather than moving the target to keep it out of reach.

    I have been working at Equifax full-time

    Pros

    If you are in the right team, this could be a great company to work for. Good bonus structure, remote working capabilities and very smart and considerate people to work with are a few pros.

    Cons

    Maternity leave is awful compared to some progressive companies in the field. Annual pay increase is just 1% which is very poor.

    Advice to Management

    You guys have to celebrate and encourage women who work very hard to be great employees and mothers, they should not be punished. There should also be better pay increases annually.

    I have been working at Equifax as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Outbound calls let you (sort of) work at your own pace; easy tasks; casual dress code; opportunities to be cross trained

    Cons

    If your lead lives in another state your team will be ignored; indifferent management; monotonous work; soul sucking cubicle farm

    Advice to Management

    Don't pawn small teams off on out of state managers and then ignore them; be consistent with policies

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

    Pros

    Equifax offers room for advancement and is very flexible. If one is willing to put in the work, then one is able to advance through the company in multiple positions.

    Cons

    While senior leadership changes every three to four years, change can bring a different point of view to the table. While not always a bad thing, the change can clash with personal current visions of where your job can be going. At this point, a lot of budget cuts and little extra things that made your job seem worthwhile are being taken away. While I get to work from home(not due to my choice), the company has now stopped paying for internet.

    I have been working at Equifax as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salaried, dont get paid by the hour, have lots of PTO (18 + 4 sick days)

    Cons

    Get paid approximately $10,000 less than what Equifax full time employees doing the same job that you do.
    No room for creativity. The Equifax Professional Services team is a big machine that just needs to be kept stable.
