    Pros

    Visionary company. Equifax is in the position for great growth. Company has a clear focus on being the industry leader.

    Management is very good and shows that they care for the employees. Company has significantly invested in the office environment and is making huge strides in employee engagement.

    Company has a very good culture

    Cons

    Employee awareness as to their career opportunities has been an issue in the past.

    The leadership team acknowledged this issue and has been making adjustments & investments into the HR systems and creating a framework that will inform all people programs, including talent development, performance management and compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You have fostered a great culture and have the company firing on all pistons to drive future growth.

  2. One little push and it could be a great place to work.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits package excellent pension scheme. Varied, often interesting work, good work life balance too and some really good people to work with. It feels a better place now than it did a few years ago.

    Cons

    Poor Career progression, some departments in the past have been utterly demoralising, regular rounds of redundancies, so go elsewhere for job security.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people more, they work hard and are very commited.

    Pros

    Fun coworkers and most supervisors are not micro managers.

    Cons

    Some positions lack direction and there's a lot of redundancy in positions. Merit increases are very low.

    Truly reward the workers behind the scenes and create a more appreciative and welcoming environment.
