Bilingual Licensed Insurance Enrollment Specialist (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – April 29, 2017
I did not enjoy working for Transamerica but loved my co-workers, still meet up with them. I did not like company operating policies or management operational ideas. Everyone is different, It was not the company for me,

Keeping the computer network up to date with essential patches, performed small tasks on servers and interacted with various vendors.

I flew 18 days and was home 12 days. I didn't fly air routes, I flew charter journeys. It was exciting. It was a small airline; we had 36 airplanes; I knew all the pilots and most of the flight attendants. I learned much about flying out-of-the-way places.

A good place to work with diverse oportunity and room to advance. The amount of change is a lot to keep up with but all employees are encouraged to share and implement ideas. Benefits and pay are competitive/average, flexibility is good. Employees support one another. Cross functional project assignments are well organized and interesting.
Insurance Contract Control Manager (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – April 18, 2017
TLIC is huge in cedar rapids IA they have a lot of good and a lot of bad. I guess for my time there management was weak mid level managers were basically out to pasture and supervisors are a bunch of people who if they had talent or ambition should have moved on 5 years ago but interestingly there still in the same role. I would never go back but my wife is going on 10 years with them
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 16, 2017
This was my first time dealing with health policies and they training they provided helped my out big time, being on the phone was not new to me but handling health policies was new and I gained a lot of confidence in that field that can help me in the future.
Transamerica is on the ascendant: lots of growth, lots of cool new projects, tons of interesting work and opportunity. The challenge of that, is that growth means lots of people are new, and lots of things don't have a clear process yet, and we're being a bit messy and scrambling. But that's part of the fun, if you look at it the right way
Marketing (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – March 30, 2017
This used to be a great place to work. They cared about employees and were actively involved in improving the lives of their employees. The past few years though there have been some changes in upper management and things went down VERY quickly. Now there is no communication and unless you are in certain locations you are made to feel like you are less important. The last 6 months of employment I had a manager that never spoke to me and a team that stopped returning my emails. This was after working for the company for over 20 years.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 27, 2017

New Business Processor (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – March 23, 2017
I worked at Transamerica for three years. I started as a temp, and it took a year-and-a-half for them to hire me as a permanent employee. When I first applied as a permanent employee there were "issues" with HR which delayed my permanent status by almost a month. Other employees who were there for less than three months were hired on as permanent employees before myself because supervisors "played favorites". After I was hired as a permanent employee, I worked on a project which was outside of my job description for approximately a year, during which time it was hinted I might get either a promotion, new position, raise, and/or bonus, but, when the time came around for my annual review I got only a $0.34 raise, and additional responsibility was added to my job description which included roles I had not previously filled over the past three years. When I would try to talk to my supervisor about any issue after she became aware I was no longer content with my situation, she brought in another supervisor to try to handle my complaints, seemingly to avoid confrontation between herself and I. Management was inflexible and unwilling to compromise regarding my situation. I gave not two, but three weeks of notice when I quit. There was NO EFFORT MADE to try to retain me. Not even any hint of appreciation for the hard work I put in over the last three years, nor the project I worked on which save the company tens of thousands of dollars, if not hundreds of thousands. Additionally, when times were hard for the company the first thing they did was ask for voluntary separation,more... followed by various department cuts, and then layoffs. While this may have made the most sense on paper, the way they went about it, in my opinion, was unprofessional. Perhaps it was just my particular department and supervisors which failed me, but from my experience I advise to AVOID TRANSAMERICA.less
Horrible Management which Play Favorites, are unwilling to compromise, and inflexible.
Call Center Supervisor (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – March 20, 2017
This was a very fast paced environment with much to learn daily. Benefits were decent and at times strenuous. Everyone who worked for the company was mature and got along. It was a family based environment.
