Start your day at TU by grabbing an Intelligentsia coffee or a tasty, hot breakfast from our onsite café. Head up to your workspace where you'll get down to business amidst the inspiring backdrop of beautiful downtown Chicago. Brainstorm onsite with team members in a variety of colorful huddle rooms or collaborate cross-functionally with our offices around the world via video conference, Skype or our intranet. Check things off your to-do list as you continually make progress on key business initiatives. Need a quick break? Challenge your colleagues to a game of ping-pong, pool, foosball, pop-a-shot or Mario Kart in one of our three onsite game rooms. Ready to hit the gym? We have one right downstairs complete with a personal trainer and a selection of free instructor-led fitness classes. Keep your energy up. Take a conference call at one of our walking or bicycle desks. Then attend the quarterly town hall to hear from the TU leadership team on progress in the current quarter and plans for the next. After a day of innovation, wind down in one of our massage chairs or join your colleagues at North Avenue for a game of league volleyball, sponsored by TU!
