Pros

The company offers a very good compensation package compared to other financial services companies. Benefits are great and there are opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Cons

Sometimes it is challenging to have the proper work-life balance. Although great strides are being made to upgrade the software and systems, numerous systems must be used to sometimes access information. Why are pay scales for individual positions such a secret?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Micro-management does not motivate.

    Current Employee - Risk Controls Analyst in Denver, CO

    I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Retirement benefit contributions of up to 15% of salary and 401k matches means most long term employees are millionaires. The company's mission is built on honesty and integrity and on helping university, research, and culture institution employees attain retirement security. Very ethnically and culturally diverse management and employee base. Great level of overall benefits including tuition reimbursement of up to $8000/year.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and a very slow to change culture. Uneven execution on corporate changes has caused many avoidable problems for the company and its clients. For better or for worse the company is becoming more sales oriented, like its chief rivals in the 401k and pension arena.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your execution on key corporate initiatives and don't forget the companies founding principles. Also be more transparent with employees
