    I have been working at TransUnion full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I've worked at TU for several years. The culture just keeps getting better. Things are fast paced and continuously evolving (which I prefer). You are rewarded by thinking differently and going above and beyond. You are given opportunities to pursue cool projects or work outside your SME area. This usually requires you to work longer hours but gives you the opportunity to gain new skills and round out your career. The...

    Cons

    We are growing quickly and there's a lot happening. This isn't the company for you if you don't like change and to evolve. You have to be willing to ask questions and move the needle forward. If not, you will likely find this place frustrating.

    Strong Innovation, Great Benifits but a hard place to advance if you’re female beyond mid level.

    I have been working at TransUnion full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Excellent executive leadership - I hope the CTO is drinking from the fountain of youth so he can stay forever. Almost unparalleled medical and FTO benifits. The company continues to innovate and expand which creates an exciting place to work with strong future growth in the industry

    Cons

    Like many organizations the white late 40’s early 50’s male rules. There is very limited diversity where some teams do not have any female leadership or female team members.

    Advice to Management

    First, keep up the drive and executive leadership. Please take note of the teams without any women. Look at how long a woman does stay when one is hired. There are entire groups with only 1 woman on the org chart. The support groups formed to expand representation are great start, however they don’t appear to result in meaningful changes. Is it possible for leadership positions to require interviews reflect the...

      I have been working at TransUnion full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      I have been with TransUnion for 5 years and I love my team. Employees here are very hard working, smart and willing to learn new things. I love the flexibility that they offer - we can work from home as required. The company offers great benefits like - 401K matching, health insurance, unlimited time off and training opportunities. They even offer yoga classes and Toastmasters enrollment. I have learnt a lot in my 5 years...

      Cons

      Some development managers are not up to the mark. The team members are working hard to meet their deadlines whereas managers are going out for lunches. The problem is that senior executives do not contact employees at lower level to get actual feedback, they are just listening to the managers.

      Advice to Management

      Senior executives need to reach out to developers, testers and other team members to get an accurate picture of the team's issues instead of just getting feedback from the managers.

      Pros

      Former CTO - His drive and passion won some huge wins. Thank you for your thoughtful leadership. Opportunities - There are endless opportunities to solve problems , learn new tech, broaden horizons and to make a difference. Which is very satisfying. Benefits - FTO and location. Great work life balance. Collaboration & Engagement - Is great for a company of this size and diversity.

      Cons

      Questioning status quo always results in retaliation, Some form or the other. No career growth for women. Favoritism is predominant and only way for advancement. Very hierarchical top down management.

      Advice to Management

      Look past your favorites. Empower, reward and promote your people making difference. Encourage and support new perspectives. Too many layers and current org structure(s) do not meet the needs of modern day trends.
