Worthy mission, great place to grow and lead. Can be operationally frustrating - but improving every day. Good people.

    Pros

    Beautiful “campus” in Charlotte
    Good pay, benefits, and parking
    Management tries to do good
    The culture is odd, masked political addenda

    Cons

    For Wealth Management clients, the issues with technology has been a monster, so huge it makes you want to take your millions and run to another company, even though TIAA CREF has better mutual funds, lower cost working fees for the funds, and good return rates. It is so frustrating when a potential client moves money to TIAA CREF, the process for the insurance end is a mess and not worth spending endless days or months hunting for your money, with millions or hundreds of thousands of dollars being lost in limbo. It will eventially show up, but it causes sleepless nights.

    Advice to Management

    Forget management, they are clueless with the changes above, since their position is always in limbo as well as ours. The place is very political, best to keep your mouth clamped shut…..of course the metrics are constantly changing it’s hard to keep up, for both management and their direct reports.

    Pros

    Mission driven organization with strong focus on putting the interests of clients first and foremost to help them reach financial well-being.

    Cons

    Somewhat smaller in number of employees and structural complexity as compared to other large financial services companies, therefore the number of opportunities for vertical movement may be less than others.
