    I worked at TIAA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, lots of volunteer opportunities. Recruiting process is fantastic and TIAA seems like it should be a great place to work - until you get inside the door!!

    Cons

    Lack of training and no one really tries to help new employees. Everyone pretty much keeps to themselves. Departments have way too many levels of hierarchy and no sense of community or teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leaders are terrible (EMT level). Some of them need to go (and everyone knows it but does nothing about it). HR is a joke. They spend more time covering up for those bad leaders than working with employees.
