I worked at Transamerica full-time

Pros

Transamerica Retirement Services has a lot of nice people who have been at the company a long time. The company offers good benefits and salaries generally seem to be fair, if not above average. They offer a lot of training to get employees up to speed with products and legislation, as well as to improve skills.

Cons

Very little innovation in this company (just look at the dated website). The people who have been at the company for 10-20+ years are nice but are pretty much stuck in their ways; new ideas are met with a lot of resistance. The company got hammered during the recession and doesn't seem to be doing much to adopt to a new world order. Executives almost all come from within the company; very few outsiders seem to want to work for TRS.

    I have been working at Transamerica full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Transamerica is a big contributor to the local community. It give mes a sense of pride to work there.

    Cons

    Until 3 years ago, Transamerica had not had a major lay-off in the 10 years I have been here. Unfortunately, teh economy has caused the company to cut back several times in the last couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People can only do more with less for so long before they get frustrated and want to move on.
