Financial Consultant (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at TIAA-CREF as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsTremendously talented co-workers; good benefits; lots of vacation; great history; used to be a not-for-profit; great clientele

Consno upward opportunity; secretive management; pushes product; compensation structure is impossible to figure out;

Advice to Senior ManagementGive people the opportunity to prove themselves at something new- just because an employee hasn't held the exact job that they are looking for doesn't mean that they wouldn't do well.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
