What was once a great organization has become one without integrity.

Wealth Management Advisor (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsOverall retirement, vacation, and health Benefits.

ConsQuestionable sales tactics being employed to uncover and obtain client assets.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis organization once had integrity and always put the interests of the participant (client) first. The transition to the concentration on asset growth and brokerage platform introduced less-than-honest sales practices which NO LONGER put the interests of the participant first. Upper management would rather concentrate on uncovering other assets and bringing those in to be managed by TIAA-CREF regardless of the suitability or interest of the client. Andrew Carnegie would be ashamed of what you have done.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
