    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.

    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 Management

    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.
