    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
