Its the journey that counts

A proven track record.

Being there for customers in good markets and bad – and putting people first – is in our DNA.

Transamerica’s roots stretch back to 1904, when Amadeo Giannini created the Bank of Italy in a converted San Francisco saloon. His goal was to make financial services available to everyone, not just the wealthy few. And so he did. After the 1906 quake and fire, Giannini set up a makeshift bank on the San Francisco docks, giving residents loans to rebuild, secured with only a handshake.   

Giannini’s business went on to become Transamerica. In 1999, the company began a new chapter when it became part of one of the world's leading international financial organizations: Aegon N.V.    

Though the iconic Transamerica pyramid remains a prominent part of the San Francisco skyline, company headquarters are in Baltimore.   

Today, Transamerica is as committed to helping people as we were 100 years ago. Our passion is empowering people to charge toward the future with a healthy account balance and a healthy heart to match, to do more today to prepare more for tomorrow.

A career that matters.

Working at Transamerica is more than a job. We’re focused on helping people save, invest, and protect what they’ve earned, so they can enjoy the lifestyle they want.

Let's build tomorrow together.

    I have been working at Transamerica full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great management team. Great product positioning. Tons of upside potential. Great brand. Lots of smart people who work hard for Transamerica's success. Very minimal politics/back stabbing for the size of the company.

    Cons

    The biggest issue (which I think senior management knows) are the lack of quality tools to capture management information quickly and in a way that leads to smart strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Improve i/t tools for better information. Establish a culture where embracing the tools for better long term infrastructure is more important than just getting to the right answer quickly in the short term.
