    I have been working at TransUnion full-time (More than a year)


    I've worked at TransUnion for over a year. Things are always busy, but I prefer it that way. I'm relatively early in my career, and with all the growth at TU, I've had so many opportunities to pick up new skills and experiences. That's very valuable to me. Plus, everyone on my team has been so welcoming. People are always willing to answer a questions or lend a helping hand. I've worked at places where young people are ignored, but at TU I really feel like my ideas are making an impact.


    As is the case in any large company, there is a bit of a learning curve when you first join the team. A couple of strong connections in the building can go along why when you're trying to navigate the red tape.
