Peter Principle at its best

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at TIAA-CREF

ProsUsed to have a very generous benefits package. Good concept of providing reasonably priced investment services to non-profits

Conshas strayed too far from its core, trying to get into all aspects of financial business, many "lifers" who get promoted only because of their longevity, not talent or abilities; tremendous hierarchy, where new titles and job levels are created all the time to give lifers somewhere to go.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean house, starting with middle management with 20+ years at the company.
