    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Interesting work
    Pay is fine

    Cons

    Overworked on a daily basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want earnings to stay up, you need to hire more ppl. You are overworking the entire firm for Wall Street

    Notice how many VERY good people have left in recent months (12-18 mths) - this is a good firm we have the cash - hire more people and keep the good people

    Pros

    Family oriented, senior management has open door policy.

    Cons

    Needs more internal training for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate more training for employees. Contractors are utilized for most projects and leave with vital knowledge.

    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.

    I have been working at Equifax

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Technology systems, strong CEO, recognition for those identified as high potential employees, family life balance

    Cons

    Lack of training and tools to perform job; compensation in remote sites is low compared to corporate office; advancement opportunities are lacking and not based on merit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication, become competitive in marketplace with wages for sites other than corporate office, provide more recognition for a broader band of employees

    I worked at Equifax full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    No lack of women in leadership roles. Good medical benefits. Excellent experience for young people to learn how to manage their own credit/ finances. Friendly atmosphere. Overtime requirements few and far between. Good deli in the building.

    Cons

    Location in Greenspoint area was not the best. Lots of crime in the parking lot. Building was flooded in Alison Storm back in 2002? and the moldy smell never quite went away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remember people want the chance to evolve. It gets tiresome, doing the same old, same old year after year. Personally, I was not shy and asked for and grabbed for a variety of things to do, but not everyone is an extrovert.
