    I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the employees truly care. About our clients and about the mission.

    Cons

    But, we've grown so much and lost sight of who we are. It's really sad. I understand that growth and the bottom line are critical to success. But some areas, like IAS (Wealth Management) are so focused (at the Sr. Level) on sales and meeting goals, that there has been tremendous turnover (both voluntary and involuntary). How does that equate to providing consistent long-term service to high net worth clients?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue and get out of your ivory tower. You talk a good game, but nothing happens.

    I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits, benign neglect.

    Cons

    Not a high performance culture. Everything takes longer than it should. Have to remind people over and over for any request. Nice place to hang out - don't count on getting much done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a cup of coffee, make some decisions, quit coddling sycophantic dawdlers
