    I have been working at TransUnion full-time (More than 3 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 people I work with are smart, innovative, and not complacent. I've worked in several environments that don't value their people. This is not one of them and it's what keeps me at TU.

    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.

    Cons

    - complex organizational structure
    - top-down management style

    Rethink top-down and overly complex hierarchy/structure; lead by example; ensure equal share of responsibility for success or failure of projects; root out problem children that think they are above work as well as everyone else; stop the favoritism

    I have been working at TransUnion full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love my job for these reason (and in no particular order) - people, opportunities, culture, knowledge, information, good challenges, work life balance, associate engagement focus, career development opportunities, philanthropic work, diversity, network resource groups, CEO, leadership and I can keep going. I've been with TransUnion for 14 years and I don't expect to go anywhere else, anytime soon.

    Cons

    we can always improve the tools and technology that we use, but for the most part, it sufficient.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring in good talent and people who value the same culture as TU
