    Pros

    Good benefits, likes to promote from within, generally forward-thinking

    Cons

    The aging board is out of touch with the reality of being an employee of the fund, and the resulting micromanagement in some departments is out of control. Appeasing superiors who lack trust in their employees has been anxiety-inducing and a colossal waste of labor/resources

    Pros

    Good people to work with depending on your department. Work is rewarding as retired teachers depend on the work you do.

    Awful place to work.

    Pros

    Most of the employees that work in this office are good people who work under very hard conditions.

    Cons

    Management - there is no leadership at the management level. The quality of some of these managers are beyond poor. Nepotism - there is a high level of this. Some managers are guilty of playing favorites within teams which has caused a high level of distrust and low morale in this office. Politics - There is a very high level of politics in this office that has added to the distrust and low morale between employees and managers. There is a lot of delegation but no leadership.
