    I have been working at TransUnion

    Pros

    One can get to learn many aspects of how the services of this company are provided, new technologies and products and participate directly in their roll outs. Very friendly work environment. There is room for individual growth and expansion.

    Cons

    Not well organized when it comes to documentation and communication. It can become stressful at times and impact work/life balance due to not always enough man power to cover all requirements of its products and their support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More people need to be hired in products and technologies support areas.

    I have been working at TransUnion as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Company has many social activities for engagement from quarterly business Town Hall meetings to monthly summer BBQ's. Leadership is approachable and can tap anybody to share knowledge. Employees have telecommuting opportunity. Flexible working hours.

    Cons

    The hot chocolate in the Star Bucks machine is often out. On the serious side, it is difficult to plan team meetings due to how busy most individuals are with their own departments..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent opportunity for internship and experience a growing company that has their employees welfare at mind. Many employees have been here many years due to benefits and workplace atmosphere.

    I worked at TransUnion full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, great working environment, good pay.

    Cons

    Sometimes management can assign projects to the wrong people and have it affect numbers, but overall they are good. One bad manager doesn't make a bad company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure quality analysis is actually random and not insert a problem call into a person's monthly quality assessment, make sure you promote the ones who are obviously trying hard to be an asset to the company and not just your friends.

    Pros

    Great autonomy. When you need to take time off its easy to do, but you need to look at others calendar first, gives great constructive criticism, if you need help with something egos are not an issue. Friendly work environment and culture

    Cons

    Depending on department, inters don't get a lot of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the awesome work
