I have been working at Transamerica full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The company is growing new business sales at a greater rate than the industry average,

Cons

Expense control is a very high priority. Most areas have overtime, and many salaried positions (lower management especially) are putting in 60+ hours a week.

    I have been working at Transamerica full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good work/life balance
    - Decent benefits
    - Great co-workers
    - Management asks for feedback
    - Interesting work (at times)
    - Good bonus potential
    - Since rebranding as Transamerica, now more of a known entity

    Cons

    - Most employees have been in the same role for 10+ years, limiting innovation
    - Many employees seem more concerned with protecting their position than doing what's best for the company
    - Organization is stuck in it's old ways - slow to respond to changing times
    - As a recent article pointed out - seems to be more concerned with protecting what they have rather than taking appropriate risks to move forward. Probably due to being owned by a Dutch Company
    - Seem to come up with a new change initiative each year but don't always follow through

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to identify and maximize the current talent pool you have currently.
