    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.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    Lot's of opportunity for advancement...the company has become much more focused on promoting from within. Leadership really cares about employee development and wants to drive the organization to think along these lines. Also, the company makes very smart acquisitions and our stock price has skyrocketed over the past few years.

    Cons

    Being a larger company, politics can play a big role here, which can be a killer for progress and collaboration. The company can be slow to let bad leaders go...they just keep them around.

    Pros

    You will learn how to work hard at this company with barely any benefit. It is very good experience and if you have the willingness to learn more there might just be an opportunity for you. Upper management isn't always on the ball but they still keep it rolling...slowly.

    Cons

    The workplace is very busy. Goals may seem a bit out of reach at times, but they are attainable. Leadership is not always capable of keeping employees productive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't settle for mediocrity.

    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.
