Good place to build skills

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Saint Petersburg, FL

I have been working at Transamerica full-time for more than a year

ProsGood Benefits, Generous Vacation Time, Tuition Reimbursement, Professional Affiliations, Average Pay Scale

ConsHiring process is slow, as is job transferring. Human Resources is very resourceful but throughout many locations so recruiting is slow and not the best in communication progress. Minimal flexibility in schedules for some departments and inconsistent management.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and conduct surveys to empower employees. One of the "must-win" battles is restoring morale and it would start with surveys to find where the opportunities are to improve.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
