    I have been working at Nuveen full-time for 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,...

    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...

    I have been working at Nuveen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Worklife flexibility- ability to work remote- although it's more strict now. Great benefits

    Cons

    little to no salary increase despite good performance hard to move up in career decision makes do not care for morale TIAA culture is great- Nuveen- not so much.

    Advice to Management

    boost employee morale- why is it a surprise employee survey are performing poorly. you have silent employees because you don't listen to them.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Nuveen full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      It was a great company with a worth of valuable people, where knowledge share was openly promoted. A big (what I would call) family styled organization.

      Cons

      After some major company changes, it began to be noticed that the direction wasn't so clear. Many staff members became very reserved and morale dropped terrible.

      Advice to Management

      Recognize the employees for the value that they bring, and fight the fight for the people who back your leadership in the direction that you have.

        I have been working at Nuveen for more than 8 years

        Pros

        From a business perspective Nuveen is participant and client focused, has great benefits, working towards a global vision.

        Cons

        From an IT perspective Nuveen: offers limited internal mobility; managers are territorial and combative; limited strategic vision; values big talkers over big ideas; does not understand the role and value of Architect from either an application perspective or a data perspective. Quality is just a catch-phrase. You will unlikely be working on any technology that furthers your career. The technology stack is 20 years...

        I have been working at Nuveen full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        The benefits package is decent and the healthcare covers a lot.

        Cons

        Salaries for non-managers have stayed flat for several years no matter how hard people work. Communication between and within departments is so shoddy that work is affected. Management has been repeatedly told what they can do to improve and does nothing. Instead, they hold town halls to boast about how well the company is doing and in the same breath cry poor mouth and budget cuts to justify working their employees to...

        Advice to Management

        Communicate more, brag less, pay your employees for their work, stop driving them to burn out or quit.
