    I have been working at Nuveen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being an Internal at Nuveen is the most magnificent and unbelievably rewarding experience I can imagine. I wake up everyday excited to come into work because I learn so much and feel like I make a positive impact on the FA's I serve. Nuveen has such an abundance of products to sell, that I am never without a great idea to discuss to add value to my client's business.

    I feel like I am on a very strong career path, which will permit me to provide a generous living for my family for decades to come. There is so much intellectual capital at Nuveen and there is a phenomenal combination of competition and camaraderie.

    Cons

    Being allowed to work remotely a day or two a week would be nice. However, I just love coming into the office and interacting with my fantastic colleagues--I could not ask for a greater group of people. I am working among an extremely smart group of people, of which I have created great friendships. During lunch we play board games and have interesting financial discussions. It’s exciting to wake up and go to work knowing that I’ll be collaborating with the best colleagues I’ve had in my career.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more remote work, but keep up the great work!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nuveen in August 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and a week later got a call from HR for a phone screen. She asked about my current job and straight up told me the field I’m working in right now is weird. (Half jokingly, but you don’t comment stuff like that at a job interview) Then she said she would forward my materials to the hiring manager and should he/she be interested she will call me to set up further interviews.

    Fast forward 1 month later, nothing so I guess no.
