    Pros

    Company performs well, but only senior leaders get the benefit of that. Rick is a great CEO and hope he cleans house in HR.

    Cons

    Focus is on "how" you get things done not allowing for diversity in style. The HR organization is the shepherd of this political culture.

    Advice to Management

    Turn over senior management who has been there too long such as HR.

    Pros

    Midtown location is prime. Business is interesting.

    Cons

    Most dysfunctional Human Resources function ever. Zero tolerance for diversity or targeted/niche marketing. Should easily be a $5b company but limited by vision.

    Advice to Management

    Get closer to your customers; understand what it truly means to be customer-centric. Clear out dead wood; it is dragging down your results. Leadership is stagnant and needs a refresh.

    I worked at Equifax full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work was always plentiful and co-workers became great friends I still have to this day

    Cons

    Management became very corporate after Equifax took over as this company used to be Talx uc express which was a GREAT company to work for. It was all about the numbers and cutting corners to achieve them. You were no longer a person but a cog in the wheel of a machine. Still one of my favorite working experiences I learned a lot both good and bad.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, stop worrying about the numbers treat people well and they will stay.

    Pros

    Coworkers are the biggest positive. Quick work pace makes the day move quickly.

    Cons

    Salary. Bad Clients. Poor management. Definitely do not suggest.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your managers how to manage a team. Senior management only cares about numbers and not how to actually run a team.

    I have been working at Equifax full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people who do the day to day work to keep the wheels turning and the lights on are highly conscientious and hard working. Good people doing good work and generally enjoying the daily challenges. The company is growing and people are generally upbeat and optimistic about the future.

    Equifax respects your personal time and doesn't expect you to work on weekends or demand crazy overtime hours to demonstrate commitment. The culture is pretty much a 9-5 mindset. The parking lots are empty before 8 and after 5.

    CEO is one of the best. when it comes to laying out a vision and a strategy. You can't argue with his success and what he's done for shareholders over the last 10 years. He's also a good person, which is rare when it comes to CEOs. The only knock against him would be that he's not a good judge of talent. He's hired some duds and keeps non-performing poor leaders around way too long.

    Cons

    There is little or no opportunity for promotion beyond the VP level. Executive level politics are horrible, and although they talk about a "meritocracy", it's just a sound bite. Promotions are awarded more like a beauty contest than based on performance.

    Compensation is below average. If you stay longer than 3 years you get left behind on your compensation and they hire new people in at much higher salary levels. Also, the disparity in pay between the Senior Leadership Team and the rest of the company is HUGE.

    Benefits package is expensive and keeps getting more expensive every year as the company pushes more of the cost down to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running off top talent and people with vision by not promoting them and keeping pace with competitive salaries. As well as the company is doing, it could be doing SO much better if you did a better job nurturing and promoting internally. The SVP layer needs to be culled.
