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

Pros

TIAA-CREF has a lot of great people to work with and their benefits are amazing for those who want a very good retirement ahead of them.

Cons

TIAA-CREF is very corporate, so it's hard to have any visibility or transparency to what's going on sometimes.

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

    Pros

    Base compensation is above average for the financial services industry.

    Some unique financial products that "practically sell themselves."

    Cons

    Constantly changing business processes and goals. Many Directors bring micro-management to a whole new level and demonstrate a complete lack of integrity.

    Prohibitively inefficient administrative support structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reign in the several layers of middle management. They're suffocating their employees and are a barrier to productivity and high moral.

    Improve the administrative support model.

    You are not nearly the only company that "leads with planning." The financial services are of the company is significantly behind competitors in several key areas.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, salary, opportunities. Best job of my career thus far. Looking forward with great anticipation. It appears that there is a lot of opportunity for growth, both professionally and personally, They really seem to value a work / life balance more than anywhere else I have been.

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to navigate. Many processes and procedures that could use some tweaking. Can often take a long time to make progress it seems. Too much organizational change at times. A somewhat complex hierarchy of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to value the employee, as well as, the customer.
