Transamerica is not a good company to work for. No room for growth in my current position so I left the company to further my career.

A company striving to be the best
New Business Intermediate Associate (Former Employee), Denver, COMarch 5, 2015
Pros: benefits package, self growth
Cons: work from home program not quite ready to be rolled out when i started working from home.
My typical day at Transamerica was filled with deadlines, quality assurance and developmental meetings to better the company and its processes. I learned that sometimes, change takes time. Management always let you know where you stood with the company in relation to service level agreements. My co-workers were an amazing group of people who would push each others boundaries to be the best! The hardest part of the job for me, was working diligently while being forgotten as a work from home representative. The most enjoyable part of the job was stepping away from the grind, and developing morale boosting activities for my co-workers.

Inbound Contact Center Employee (Former Employee), Cedar Rapids, IAAugust 25, 2014
Pros: benefit packages, customer service, cafe, gym
Cons: advancement opportunities, lack of communication
A normal day in the life of working at Transamerica involves going to work, logging into the phones. (Being wired to a continuous queue.) As each phone call comes in you never know what is going to happen... Could be simple or extremely complex! All day it is back to back phone calls, and a majority of the co-workers are great!

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.
