    I worked at Equifax full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, Innovative, Excellent Compensation. Equifax is the type of company that if you spend a decent amount of time at your knowledge base will expand and prepare you to advance or prepare you for your next opportunity. The executive management is loyal and was very supportive of me during a year I went through some difficult times medically and with my family.

    They take talent development seriously including multiple calibration sessions for annual reviews with management and HR.

    Rick Smith is a talented CEO. He is extremely smart and intense. I believe his intensity carries well to his Executive team and further down stream creating an atmosphere that makes you want to do great work.

    This is a very forward thinking company that not only manages what is happening now but places a big focus on growth over the next few years ahead.

    If things were this great then why would I leave? The answer is my growth over the 4 years at Equifax put me in a position to be advance my career taking a different opportunity outside the organization.

    The company was graceful and treated me with respect during my exit and I genuinely feel they are wanting to see me exceed.

    Cons

    Depending on the organization you work in you are spread out all over the country and many positions are home officed. For some this would seem like an advantage but this type of set up causes lots of conference calls and an enormous amount of communication via email. It was hard to find much wrong with my experience at Equifax but this was sometimes a challenge for me. Some might view this set up as a pro.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the fundamentals that I believe are the company's foundation. Fair talent development process with annual reviews and a constant eye on the years ahead. Invest more in technology resources. EFX has some of the best data assets on the planet but it felt many times that we were fighting prioritization issues and could do even more if we had them.
