I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time (less than an year)

Pros

TIAA-CREF and the people who work there genuinely care about their clients and their investment outcomes. The benefits are great, including health insurance, fitness reimbursements, and compensation. Most managers seem to take seriously their employees' work-life balance. The corporate culture places a strong emphasis on diversity.

Cons

It is a large company, which sometimes translates into bureaucracy and monolithic thinking that is slow to change. The long name can be unwieldy at times. The company does not have the brand recognition it deserves, though it is trying to change that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help investors understand why your products are better, rather than just telling them that they are. Enhance training opportunities for new employees.

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

    Pros

    In recognition of the horribly out of date systems (ie 6, office 2003!, ECT) they understand that the only way to get people to work here is to pay more than comparative positions where you don't have to put up with as much.

    Cons

    Struggling to adapt to the changing pension industry. Processing seems to be paid on the number of forms they reject. Being hard to do business with is so deeply ingrained into the culture, organization, and technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 50% scores on the employee satisfaction and engagement surveys should be a wake up call.

    Negative Outlook
