I have been working at Transamerica as an intern (Less than a year)
I came at a very convenient time for TCHS; they had just finished moving to a new office and were in the process of hiring a new program manager. The team is small, but I prefer that since I got to know everybody on a more personal level and there was never any drama. That also meant I got to try out many different roles and responsibilities. I ran the social media accounts, learned a lot about U.S. healthcare, researched improvements in environmental health, updated the website, wrote scripts for our radio shows, and a lot of other tasks that popped up along the way. The location is perfect, the Metro is right below the building, and the pay beats working for any other non-profit organization and even many for-profit companies in the public health field. I got fully reimbursed for taking public transportation and got taken out to lunch quite a few times to nice restaurants around the area.
There can be a lot of work at times, but the team is always helpful and is always quick to provide support. It is a great introduction into the non-profit sector and good position if you enjoy wearing multiple hats.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work with including the intern in everything! I got to join every business meeting and helped out with a lot of important projects. I felt like I was a full-fledged team member and was respected in the workplace.
I applied online. I interviewed at Transamerica (Los Angeles, CA).
You know there's no base salary and it's all commission-based when the employer has to sell you on why you should work there. It may be a great job for someone with a lot of friends who are looking for retirement/financial planning services but other than that, not worth the time.
