I have been working at Transamerica full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – For some reason the company seems to be doing well. Provides a steady paycheck and pays the bills. There is some room for growth if you are politically in favor.
Cons – The culture sucks. A lot of cronyism and a lot of workplace bullies. Most of management is grossly under qualified which breeds insecurity among all ranks within the company. Management treats employees like 5 year olds. The company is run like a true evil empire. They do not value their employees and the benefits are pretty poor for the industry.
Advice to Senior Management – It starts with leadership.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Transamerica full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – I don't believe there are any.
Cons – Where do I start? Very poor leadership. A mecca of nepotism. If you are not in the "in crowd" forget it. Also, each department is run by a salesperson. Most of the leaders came from the sales desk, which before and after they become a leader the sale desk person is treated awful...and once they get off the desk they forget where they came from. No training for management - so there is a huge liability for the company.
Advice to Senior Management – Stop trying to compete with asset managers. All of your leaders just say what you want to hear. Of course this is true - they are all sales people. I actually think it's sad that you have no clue what is going on and how people are threatened and treated so badly. Leaders just will not admit what they don't know..and since they only have sales experience, that's a lot. And of course, with sales people come huge egos - no exception at this place.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
