    Pros

    If you want to be able to work remote they have the tools and encourage it. Use State of the Art technology.

    Cons

    Too matrixed and people don't want to speak up to affect change. No one is willing to make difficult decisions and if you are not part of the corporate office you don't stand a chance at being successful.

    Pros

    They offer good pay and benefits

    Cons

    This company is the most clickish I have ever seen. If you're not a white male, you have no chance to move up. The only women are the ones that have been there a long time. The people that have been there for 20+ years rotate through management roles and have no clue how other companies work. So no depth of experience.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to bite the bullet and get rid of ineffective management and individual contributors that have been there forever and are no longer an asset.

    Pros

    Able to learn and interact with a team of co-workers with different skill sets.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities. Promotions are given to those who are popular and not based on merit. Forced to develop on your own. No opportunity to improve with additional certifications.

    Advice to Management

    Be respectful of others. Provide a work life balance that is fair and adequate. Promote others based on merit. Health care benefits is very limited with only a choice of two healthcare providers and very expensive.

    Pros

    Great history, benefits, and stability. It is certainly a place where you can stay for your entire career if you so wish. Training is available and the ability to learn new skills are there depending on the group you are in.

    Cons

    Yearly if not quarterly layoffs are the result of managing stock expectations. Lack of any career development. A winnowing down as of late of the options, incentive plan inclusion, and RSU grants due to cost containment drills.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Some of your best have already left. Since the stock continues to rise, it won't get noticed until too late though.

    Pros

    Great location, tuition reimbursement and training provided.

    Cons

    While professional, the environment is very stuffy. If you are not a senior leader you are treating like you don't matter. Recognition is terrible! although they say they want to invest in the employees and train them, Equifax still hires outside of the company instead of hiring within. Raises; don't expect it. Perks for senior leaders only. Don't trust co workers either everyone is trying to look out for themselves. Not a team oriented environment.
