    TransUnion is changing for the better, but an old bureaucracy continues to stymie innovation

    Let me start off by staying that I wake up everyday happy to come to work for TransUnion. I absolutely love my colleagues. They are smart, motivated to consistently perform at a high level, and demonstrate a continued resiliency when faced with the unnecessary complexity of our organization. People at all levels are accessible even for individual contributors at the analyst level. I've found few instances of grandstanding by members of senior leadership. The company pays well across the board, but the ratio of "compensation to actual work" is highest at the director level (above managers and below vice presidents). Managers put in a great deal of hours and VPs are the proving ground of the leadership ranks, so there is a great deal of output from these levels. You also cannot beat the work-life balance. Very few people here work crazy hours. The ones that do are typically managers.


    Associates are frustrated with the lack of new-hire training. While your manager is supportive of your efforts, the environment at TransUnion will be difficult for anyone who hates ambiguity or requires formal on-the-job training. Our bureaucracy is a major pain point. We have roughly 3,500 employees globally and our annual revenues are $1.4B. I'm not in finance, but this seems inefficient. Yet, it seems to most associates that there is a major lack of human resources. How can this be? For starters, it's a reliance on mainframe, an extremely vertical organization, and a general lack of career paths for associates across the business. I should note that the lack of established career paths can be a major advantage for those willing to network and switch business units, but this is easier said than done.

    Advice to Management

    The new brand has a tech company feel, but it's empty unless you start inspiring your people to innovate. Innovation is not just a responsibility for associates in product development. Take a hint from Uber, Google, Amazon, and the other major tech companies. Embrace the notion that we are a tech company and we're here to change the game of the information and risk solutions industry.

    Linux Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boca Raton, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at TransUnion (Boca Raton, FL) in June 2015.


    Had a phone screening with an internal recruiter. Received a call for a follow up interview with the hiring manager and their team. After the first on-site interview, was called in for another interview with a higher level manager for a non-technical interview. During the second on-site interview was asked by the high level manager to sit with a manager from another department of which was not responsible for the position I had applied for. Received an offer, but the recruiter was curt when a counter offer was made. The company chose to ignore the counter offer and allow it to expire rather than respond directly.
