  1.  

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

    I have been working at TIAA-CREF

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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".
