I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time for more than a year

Pros

Decent pay, good benefits, benign neglect.

Cons

Not a high performance culture. Everything takes longer than it should. Have to remind people over and over for any request. Nice place to hang out - don't count on getting much done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

have a cup of coffee, make some decisions, quit coddling sycophantic dawdlers

    I worked at TIAA-CREF full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good compensation, good benefits, vacation, etc...

    Cons

    Poor management, unrealistic expectations, not a good work environment. Company really down played sales aspect of the job during interview process. I hit most of my goals and got fired anyway. Most of my co-workers were dying to move to another department. Managers make employees feel like crap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people know this is a sales job before you hire them. Figure out which metrics are most important and focus on those.

    I worked at TIAA-CREF

    Pros

    Large firm with long standing clients. Offers great retirement benefits.

    Cons

    The firm does not live by their core values and code of business ethics. You will be worked to death and not rewarded for your work. They will not pay your required overtime even if you work beyond 40 hours. You will be put down emotionally and mentally to the point of exhaustion and pushed out of the firm. Beware of false promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management plays the blame game only to make themselves look better. LIve up to the statement of "For the Greater Good" and not for your own personal gain. Listen to staff and their plights. Big changes are needed at this firm.
