    I worked at Equifax

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Equifax full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    good pay and travel.

    Cons

    Chile's office is very corporate and it seems like you have to fight the power to get something done.
    Zero training, the only training i had was how to evacuate the place in case of earthquake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The usa people try to deal with the latam people not knowing how to do it. Colonization in 2014 is not nice.
    They disrespect the culture and the way of doing things assuming everythings wrong. Im sure the company spent more in travel and "team building dinner" expenses than what was actually invested while i was there.

    Former Employee - Senior Vice President in Atlanta, GA (US)
    Former Employee - Senior Vice President in Atlanta, GA (US)

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

    Pros

    Dependable and comfortable. Very conservative for obvious reasons as credit bureau, offering reliable financial security to employees.

    Cons

    Too risk averse in approaching marketplace in general, lacking creativity. Rigid in pricing models, slow to market, scalability of new solutions. Almost literally the antithesis of entrepreneurial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside the same old organizational confines for product direction, acquisition targets and management recruiting. Promoting from within is rewarding for tenured staff but limits stretching organization to grow in new ways.

    Pros

    Great co workers, work life balance is amazing, nice company to work for. Ability to move up if you want to. I have a wonderful manager. Senior management keep employees informed. Vacation time is great!

    Cons

    The company will cheat you on your pay increase when you move up in the company. New comers will make more than you. The benefits are not the best but ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees they are the ones face to face with clients.

    I have been working at Equifax full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are really, really friendly and it's such a relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    I HATE how call centers constantly call you, and I see why. It's the structure of the business to call people 4-5 times a day and leave voicemail after voicemail. But, it's business, it works, and that's the only thing I don't like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For call centers everywhere, there HAS to be a more efficient way to do this.

    Current Employee - Senior Director, Analytics

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

    Pros

    Strong company performance, focused on bottom line. Great people in analytics and sales. Unparalleled data assets. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Senior management's short-sighted focus on stock price drives frequent reorganizations - 5 managers in 3 years. Big company in a heavily regulated business means new product development is a very slow process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on people and technology, less on short-term stock price movements.
