  1. Helpful (1)

    Great company to work for, but lots of politics. Plus some "empty suits" who have been there a long time.

  2. Wonderful mission and retirement investment vendor... being compromised by bogus management fads and short term metrics

    Pros

    One of the three large retirement investment vendors (along with Vanguard and USAA) where an investor can automatically plug-in to low investor-borne fees (i.e. management, wrap, commission, ME, etc.) and avoid the nasty industry elements involving sales-minded "advisors/planners".

    Cons

    Have moved from treating front-line employees as valued team members to unwelcome sources of liability and expense...

    Advice to Management

    Get the focus back on what you claim: Doing Well by Doing Good. It's the smart thing. Your Metrics attempts have distracted the firm into "looking good" instead of "doing good"... micromanaging all activities to make/fake attractive numbers for next weeks meeting. The business units have become disincented to collaborate with each other citing that "sorry, can't help with this... it's not on our scoreboard".
