    I worked at Equifax full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits are good. The work can be pretty interesting, and you can work with a wide variety of departments and people if you're willing to put in the time and effort and tell management that you're interested in growing your career.

    Cons

    The leadership team can be capricious and make mind-blowingly bad decisions. Even on very short notice. Some decisions actually make no sense and contradict decisions they made only a short time ago. Some senior management look out only to protect their positions and won't support their employees.

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive, though you will work tirelessly for every cent.

    Cons

    I have never written a Glassdoor review. I’ve not felt the need because even the least favorable companies at which I have been employed have been decent places to work. Equifax Workforce Solutions, however, is a horse of a different color. This toxic dictatorship is unlike anything I have ever encountered and the impetus behind my writing. I feel compelled to warn job seekers before they make a ruinous employment decision. In this review, I will be very intentional about using “manager” in lieu of “leader” when referring to those with greatest positional power in this company, as no aspect of their conduct is remotely reminiscent of leadership. To be sure, the sentiments expressed here are not solely my own; I am giving voice to the many employed by this company who have conveyed shared perceptions and experiences. While I often hope I have but temporarily drifted into a fictional realm to analyze a case of corporate dysfunction at its worst, it is unfortunately my daily reality. The senior management team is soulless and has absolutely no regard for employees. In this company, it doesn’t matter how you achieve results; it only matters that results are achieved. It is demoralizing to push so hard for nothing more than the prospect of quarterly financials that satisfy overly optimistic forecasts. Sure, Equifax is a business and must make money; however, the radical emphasis on revenue consumes nearly every meeting and conversation. Purpose statements and organizational values may exist on internal banners and the company’s intranet site but unless they relate to the myopic focus on revenue and transactions at any cost that is the President’s modus operandi, they are merely empty words. On multiple occasions I have witnessed a high and mighty SVP ostracize employees in front of a group of their peers and belittle brilliant people to the point of them losing any measure of self-worth. These insecure bullies not only receive a pass; they advance in this company! The talent acquisition process is highly selective and because senior management lacks a moral compass, they are good at selling candidates a bag of goods far from the stodgy and abrasive reality they will experience as employees. It is truly disheartening to see the degree of despondency that begins to overcome highly capable and talented individuals during their first 90 days. I have seen involuntary cuts on five separate occasions in the last 10 months, impacting multiple parts of the company, in spite of the business unit being the fastest growing of any under the Equifax umbrella. This often occurs with little or no subsequent communication on who was impacted, leaving employees discovering vacant desks with feelings of being left behind in the Rapture. Senior management loves to control the narrative, so they generally elect not to discuss staff reductions with anyone outside their inner circle. Transparency and open communication are not values the senior management team possess. If one finds himself on bad terms with one of these most erudite senior managers, a reason will be fabricated – even a reorg to communicate a “position elimination” – in order to exit said person. Simply put, no one advances in this company unless they feed the ego of the autocratic tyrants at the helm. If you wish to sell your soul to the power-hungry, malevolent puppeteers in command, lose all feelings of humanity and self-respect, and become consumed with fear and paranoia about whether you are next on the chopping block (and the probability is high that you would be), you should look no further than Equifax Workforce Solutions as your employer of choice. For everyone else, RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN! Your wellbeing and sense of dignity depend on it. No amount of money or desperation for a job can justify taking a position at this soulless and most dysfunctional organization. Choose. Anywhere. Else.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like humans rather than a means to revenue. This change will facilitate a material increase in employee engagement, productivity, and retention. Though a difficult school of thought for the senior management team to embrace, treating employees well will actually drive more … wait for it … revenue! Yes, the increased productivity and customer satisfaction resulting from happier employees will drive more of what the senior management team presently fails to optimize. Unfortunately, the only hope of this happening and transforming EWS into a desirous employer is to eliminate the entire senior management team – especially the President. HR has no power to influence change because the values of the entire senior management team are upside down, and they see no shortcomings in how they operate. Mr. Begor, the senior management team is destroying this business unit. They are the culprit behind the exodus of great talent and massive turnover costs. Intervene now and stop the bleeding. Replace the senior management team at Workforce Solutions with a senior leadership team before further damage is done.

    I worked at Equifax full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good salary and good bonuses

    Cons

    No work life balance and horrible senior management. Once the new Sr mgmt came into Workforce Solutions they have totally destroyed the morale of such good people. You were constantly working under threatening environment and no positive feedback. This Sr Mgmt won’t take responsibility for anything when a customer was dissatisfied but instead blame the workers who couldn’t control things. Let hundreds of incredibly talented individuals go. This Sr mgmt could care less about the customers needs it all had to be their way.

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

    Pros

    It's a job with money coming in

    Cons

    Benefits are constantly being cut, employees are pressured to work even longer hours, senior management is dishonest with employees or very inept - one or the other, and the culture has become extremely depressed with many wondering if they'll be cut next so the CEO can manipulate financial ratios to meet arbitrary goals promised to Wall Street.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking so short term, especially you Mr. CEO. The last CEO wasn't perfect, but he was a godsend compared to what's there now. Actually invest in your employees and products, treat customers right and maybe then you'll see positive returns.

    Good benefits, good pay, great co-workers

    Cons

    Top Management needs to rethink their strategy, as most employees are not satisfied, particularly in Equifax Workforce Solutions due to the unreasonable demands and quirks. I would not give Senior Management a 1 star, but a 1 star is the lowest selection possible. They were often mocked and employees had a very regard for them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better, and be reasonable with your demands and expectations!

    Pros

    Equifax has a great franchise with access to an enormous volume of data. They have been very successful and they have good products and services, they are market leaders in some areas. Good benefits. They are always trying to innovate with new products and services.

    Cons

    There is a definite hierarchy and you are expected to be loyal or you will face negative consequences. Senior management (with the notable exception of Dann Adams) is not there to help you, you are there to help them. Never, ever ask a hard question or criticize senior management in any way. The bonus system drives a lot of behavior and many times it conflicts with company and personal goals. As a result, the company has a sharp focus on short-term results, not on building value nor on achieving market share.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to accept criticism and negative feedback from subordinates. Create a better bonus compensation structure more aligned with long-term corporate goals.

    Intern program needs a bit more structure and more opportunities to talk to Senior Management.

    Keep doing the intern program, interns can take a lot away if they take the program seriously.
