Pros

Solid job security, senior management is very competent. The CEO used to be vice chairman of the Federal Reserve and appears very fair and genuinely concerned about employee advancement. Lower level management is less caring, but in general reaching out to employees of all levels is helpfull. Company is dedicated to advancing employee's careers

Cons

There are a lot of old timers that don't share the same philosophy as newer employees. Job responsibilities are not fully explained, but this at times, this leads to higher levels of responsibility among employees. More responsibility however does not always result in a higher salary

Advice to Management

Increase salary and bonuese to a level that are on parity or exceed the average of the industry

    Pros

    Continuing education is paid for.

    Cons

    I worked at T/C for almost 5 years. I left early 2008. It was the best decision that I ever made! Management is terrible and dishonest. The managers choose their employees and play favorites. The whole working environment is very threatening. For the last couple of years, there was the threat of being laid off for any reason, for the simple fact that bad business decisions were made, and cost the company. So what do they do? Make the "small people" pay the price by hanging your job over your head. Do something wrong, and you’re out. They use any little reason to get rid of people.The people who moved down from NY with the big salaries are so “cut throat” towards the Charlotte employees because they’re so scared to be replaced by cheaper salaries. PENSION is one of the worst departments. The morale is TERRIBLE, and the working environment is very threatening. There are a few good managers, but the others have a power trip and are responsible for many of the bad choices and repercussions.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management who make the bad decisions should be held accountable. Some should even be replaced. (S.Kong)

    Pros

    Centrally located in midtown Manhattan, competitive salary, generous retirement plan (but that's changing).

    Cons

    There is an increasing distrust of Senior and Executive Management. They play favorites when handing out promotions, and they are becoming dishonest. They say one thing, but do another, and it's all designed to benefit them with regards to compensation, while they look for every means possible to reduce compensation and benefits for non managerial employees. They're putting a lot of effort into consolidating the wealth of the company at the very top, at the expense of the non managerial employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the rhetoric about TIAA-CREFs ethics and high standards, and try being fair and honest with ALL employees.
