I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time (more than a 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

    I worked at TIAA-CREF

    Pros

    Large firm with long standing clients. Offers great retirement benefits.

    Cons

    The firm does not live by their core values and code of business ethics. You will be worked to death and not rewarded for your work. They will not pay your required overtime even if you work beyond 40 hours. You will be put down emotionally and mentally to the point of exhaustion and pushed out of the firm. Beware of false promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management plays the blame game only to make themselves look better. LIve up to the statement of "For the Greater Good" and not for your own personal gain. Listen to staff and their plights. Big changes are needed at this firm.

    Pros

    Great benefits plan to include insurance, company contributions towards retirement, tuition reimbursement. Nice facilities to work in, doesn't feel like you are working in a box. There is also a clinic on site, just in case.

    Cons

    Depending on the manager, there could be some level of nepotism. On the whole, a good work environment to be in.
