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

Former Employee - Wealth Management Advisor in New York, NY

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

Pros

Overall retirement, vacation, and health Benefits.

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This 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.

    I have been working at TIAA-CREF

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good.. Vacation time isn't bad either. Annual bonuses can be generous if you're actually good.

    Cons

    Systems are horrible, very ancient.. Very slow. But it gives you a bigger bonus.

    I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many so if I had to choose it would be compensation.

    Cons

    Wealth Management Directors who manage with abusive tactics such as constantly threatening advisors with the loss of their jobs. Severe lack of focus on talent development and rampant finger pointing. Personal performance and achievement of goals does not matter as directors will find a reason to write you up if you are not part of their "inner group". Very convoluted and vague assessment criteria for Advisor performance and bonus calculations. Massive defection of advisors due to a very abusive culture within IAS. Many who have been with the firm for more than a year have learned to keep opinions and ideas to themselves for fear of negative backlash or retaliation. Work/ Life balance is discouraged. Unless your are with the "in crowd", forget about any opportunity for advancement and count yourself lucky if your not being managed out.
