I have been working at TransUnion full-time (more than an year)Pros
As a member of an acquired organization, the individual organization has a great deal of individual opportunity. We have some great advantages over other area offices.
Toolset; Progressive initiatives; Accountability; Location; Salary + Benefits > avg; ample training/ conference opportunities; consistent process evaluation; abandoned off-shore/outsourced software development; local scrum teams led by FTEs augmented with contractors; Diligent release process; dedicated operations support dress development efforts to continue w/out production fire interruptions; maturing Agile processesCons
It's not a boutique development environment where developers & engineers have free reign - some folks struggle with a PCI compliant environment. Developer accounts are not admin accounts. Working around the restrictive permissions is a challenge. Ninjas find ways to negotiate the system constraints with fluidity. If one were to strictly follow processes, delivery pace would be quite a bit slower.
Often times, a high ranking title associated with your name or close manager buddies are the only way to get a request executed across the enterprise.Advice to ManagementAdvice
The Agile tides are coming to corporate, the days of big up front design and strict process are eroding. CMMI has it's place, but software is malleable, allow fluid change in development processes and the existing production gates should remain effective.
Acquired offices have differing cultures than corporate and are often the source of the ingenuity that TU needs. When these child companies interact with corporate teams, often the tools and skills are not in sync. Corporate teams tend to adopt "change is bad" fear, and will not adopt newer tools and tactics. Predictably, this creates constraints when hiring new folks and integrating modern technologies. Adopting of modern tools and skills will attract & retain talent.
