I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time for less than a year

Pros

Decent Pay, Nice Quite workplace, friendly staff, 1st year 20 days PTO plus 8 paid holidays and 2 floating holidays (used like PTO), Awesome 401k matching and they also pay a certain percentage of your salary based on age into a retirement plan. generous amount of overtime available and they buy lunch pretty often for everyone on the phones.

Cons

Health care is more expensive than my previous job, too many old systems.

    I worked at TIAA-CREF full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of anything positive about TIAA-CREF. I'm not a disgruntled employee, just don't want someone else to experience this horrible workplace.

    Cons

    culture of blame and fear
    leadership is out to maximize their bonus by exploiting direct reports
    no work life balance - you are their slave - yes really
    disrespectful behavior allowed and encouraged to get results...or "get big bonuses for leadership"
    corrupt Human Resources Department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice as Sr leadership doesn't want to hear it. They like their big bonuses and will do anything to keep that going. Sad.....no conscience, no soul, no integrity required to be part of leadership team at TIAA-CREF.

    I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay and retirement plan. Can't afford to leave, but looking.

    Cons

    Disorganized training dept.
    Outdated and slow computers
    They tell you how they are ethical and fair and act just the opposite
    High turnover (people leaving), not people being promoted as they tell everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul your training department and lower to mid management.
    Treat employees like people, not machines
