Worked there 6 years and although fired unexpectedly would qualify it as a good place to work.

I worked at TIAA-CREF full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

- Good work/life balance.
- Good pay.
- Encourage educational opportunities.
- Senior management conducts frequent employee meetings.

Cons

- Management has a somewhat phony "openness".
- Power and decision-making very centralized.
- Poor accountability.
- If you're not promoted within 3 or 4 years, probably never going to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to give more decision-making and authority to front-line employees and managers actually doing the job. Understand you don't know everything and that's OK. Nobody does.

    I worked at TIAA-CREF full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Look to develop employees through training opportunities
    Believe in internal promotions

    Cons

    Too many layers of management and red tape
    It is near impossible to get a policy changed, even if it is outdated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know there is heaps of regulation in financial services, but TIAA-CREF is painfully slow to react to changes or policies that need to be revised.
