Felt expendable
Annuity New Business Processor (Former Employee), Denver, COAugust 24, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers, nice office
Cons: no job security
The New Business department has a terrible attrition problem because the upper management doesn't seem to care about the employees very much. Management would rather just replace employees than change their broken procedures that are causing their high turnover problems. Definitely not a long term job and almost no advancement opportunities.

Insurance is a tricky industry
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Kansas City, MissouriJanuary 21, 2014
Although Transamerica is a well-known company, they have been known to move around the country quite a bit which cause some hardship for their employees. This type of change created a lot of turn around within the organization which caused some unhappiness with employees.

The environment is somewhat ambiguous. This is a plus if you do not like being in a box, but can be disconcerting if you need structure.

Pros: dental insurance and 401k plan with paid training.

Good company to start at and learn about Annuities, I have gain a lot of experience in helping customers over the phone. There is no much contact with coworkers since we have to be on the phone all the time with limited break times, but great opportunity to interact with the customers. No much room for growth.

If you're familiar with or interested in life insurance and annuities, then this is a great job. The customer service training process is extensive, a lot if information crammed into a few weeks. So be really comfortable with annuities, interest rates, insurance, stock market, & claims if you want to feel comfortable. Management & training staff is – more... awesome, small office so very frequent department bonding occurs. – less
