Current Employee - Manager in Charlotte, NC

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

Pros

Flexible schedules and ability to work from home

Cons

Systems still archaic (ex: still using IE6)
Clueless middle management
Opportunities for advancement/transparency

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employ knowledgeable managers by promoting from within.

It is tiring to hear that we don't have enough money to hire more resources at the ground level, but every month we hire a new executive.

    I worked at TIAA-CREF full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Retirement Plan benefits, paid time off, ability to work remotely

    Cons

    -Internal career path for mid-level managers and directors is non-existent. They hire from the outside for positions higher than director (notoriously from Fidelity).
    - Sr. leaders are out of touch with what really happens in the rank and file employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership is intimidating and due to fear factor employees will not say what is on their mind. Also increase career pathing for managerial and director level employees. If that position isn't filled from outside first it takes someone leaving the company for a person to get promoted.
