    Pros

    The only good thing about working at Equifax is the experience you earn.

    Cons

    They do not have staff trained to lead departments, they treat us like children and it is an atmosphere full of gossip and convenience, if you are proactive you will never rise because the bosses do not help, they are full of envy.

    Advice to Management

    Look for in the company people with desire for improvement, who study that know the internal processes, come to know what happens inside each department and see how people do not want to look for another place to work
