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

    Pros

    People - most are hard working and great to work with
    Performance oriented growth opportunities - hard work pays off

    Cons

    Top Heavy - not enough workers to support existing goals let alone aggressive growth goals
    Centralized - goals driven by US Parent
    Reporting requirements (internal) are getting cumbersome - multiple reports, same content, 100's of slices
    work environment has progressed to very chaotic
    Work/life balance is encouraged but hard to attain with current workloads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look at hiring more workers - people burning out and feeling like a # and working in a sweat shop
    people are starting to feel negative about their performance as they are always rushing, fighting fires and have started missing deadlines etc because too much workload - workloads are an issue. People want to do well but are being hindered by too much on plate
    serious departmental analysis is required I believe (ie: ratio of mgmt to workers in depts. to output needed etc)

    I have a lot of respect for the senior team and fortunately work in a great department. Salary, benefits and perks are excellent and you're encouraged to voice your opinions.

    Like most companies; there can never be enough staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each team meeting should include how we as employees live the company values.

    Pros

    Work life balance is great, ability to work off site.
    Coworkers are friendly and work as a team in my experience.
    Solid benefits and time off.
    Really bright team in executive management, Thought leaders bringing about tangible improvement.

    Cons

    Some outdated processes/operational redundancy.
    Communication and documentation of S.O.P's could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, there is a very positive buzz amongst the other employees that I talk to!

    I worked at TransUnion full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is above market rate. Decent coworkers once they get to know you. Plenty of project work due to antiquated systems.

    Cons

    No real vacation or sick days. Received 19 PTO (paid time off) days for the year. Most management was brought in by their friends from former companies. Lousy growth opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie at the interview about flex hours and ability to work from home when you really don't mean it.

    Pros

    TransUnion has a great company culture and offers a true work-life balance. We are in a period of transition which makes it an exciting time to be with the company. You have the opportunity to be apart of projects that contribute to an evolving company.

    Cons

    During a period of transition, you have to accept that roles/tasks/projects are not always clearly defined and change will occur. You have to be open to changing priorities and be able to adapt and go with the flow! Which is not a con for everyone.

    Pros

    TransUnion is a wonderful place to work. They really care about their people, strive to always be better and have a relaxed working environment you typically don't find in this 'type' of business.

    Cons

    I think this company is only getting better, each and every day.

    Pros

    I love working for TransUnion. I'm really early into my career and have taken advantage of many opportunities TU has presented. Love to new brand. For the most part, I enjoy my coworkers.

    Cons

    For a tech company, we're not very tech savy. Small example, I was told that I need to restart my computer every time I'm having issues with the sound. Every. Single. Time. Nothing like rebooting during a presentation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully commit to the trch company personality.

    Pros

    The Austin division of Transunion Healthcare is a great place to work at. There is a mix of old timers and new blood. Together, you get to develop solutions to old and new problems. The technology stack is .Net and SQL, but the problems you get to solve and the projects you get to work on are interesting and cutting-edge. There is a lot more flexibility than what I had heard of. Very collaborative work environment, lots of growth. Good benefits too.

    Cons

    Not a great place for people who don't enjoy attention to detail, and don't have a natural inclination to work with lots and lots of data. I don't see anyone wearing shorts to work even in summer. Glad to see jeans all the time though. :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be mindful and don't take a step in the wrong direction. We have a good going right now.
