    I have been working at TransUnion full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    After spending my early career at small and mid-size companies, I'm so appreciative of the kind of benefits a company the size of TransUnion can offer. Our health insurance covers virtually everything I need, I got 12 weeks of maternity leave fully paid, the 401k plan is great. They even offer pet insurance!

    Beyond the benefits plan, I'm legitimately happy here. My colleagues are fun and respectful, my manager is supportive, I rarely work more than 40 hours, and I truly feel that my contributions are recognized and appreciated.

    Cons

    It's challenging to think of any besides some of the "red tape" associated with working through processes at a large company. Certain processes like getting contracts signed or budget approvals are very formal and time consuming

    Pros

    Great benefits, work life balance, work from home option.

    Cons

    Since the Greenwood village office is a field office (they are head quartered in Chicago), we don't always get the same opportunities to technology and projects as our Chicago counterparts.

    Pros

    Great environment. Good perks. CEO is great. Most of the staff is pleasurable to work with. Standing desks and treadmill desks are nice options.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in the crowd. There are some members of management who are hard to deal with. Some managers don't work well together.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to work as a team. Not each department against department.

    Need to get products on par with competitors to truly compete and then need to find some unique capabilities to help you win.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, have rarely needed to login after 5 PM and never on the weekends. Work is interesting for now, exposure to the latest tools and techniques. Friendly co-workers and great location just across union station

    Cons

    Unless you push, stagnation appears to be the norm, some people may be happy with it, but it wont suit me to do the same job for years altogether. Your experience is very likely going to be dependent on your personal relationships with your bosses and your own lobbying for growth. Need to be type A to be noticed. Alternatively, it's easy to be invisible - putting in 8 hours a day in a safe predictable environment.

    Advice to Management

    Career Planning - Don't make this a place where people go to retire
