My feedback as a senior business analyst

Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I worked at TIAA-CREF

ProsVery intelligent workforce and stimulating work environment. Co-workers will go out of their way to help you get up to speed. Knowledge sharing is a high priority. Resources are adequate and the workplace environment is very pleasant. Like a college campus.

ConsIT is a fiefdom. They do not like to work with the business side and vice versa. TIAA seems to have a hard time realizing they are in business to make money and that they answer to clients. They seem to think that since they service college employees that they are themselves a college.

Advice to Senior ManagementBreak down the walls between divisions. Do the work needed to convince all the various groups that they are all on the same team with the same goals.

Pros: Amazing retirement contributions! Can you believe 12.5% employer contributions… Cons: Unable to move up. Work really hard, put in the extra effort, go above and beyond, and be congratulated with high five.… Advice to Senior Management: Promote from within!
