Mutual Fund Accountant-Finance Department (Former Employee), Manhattan, NYC – June 24, 2014
Pros: i felt like the employees were great as if they were my personal friends
Cons: the laid-back environment was abused by some of the employees
Working for TIAA-CREF was excellent! I felt like The employees and environment were very good to me. When I needed help there were there to the rescue! I love them I wish I never left! sometimes in life we make decisions that are not good, but we have to live with them Right.
I was there from the time they moved to their facility. Worked lots of overtime supporting a lot of people. I felt appreciated at times but as the years rolled by, worked harder and was appreciated less.
Service Excellent Team (Former Employee), Lewisville, TX – June 6, 2014
Pros: the work enviorment
Cons: department was let go and hard to move around without a lincense
A typical work day for myself would be inbound call for varies things with investment backing for an unlicensed representive. With great management that work with you for advancement with becoming lincensed. The hardest part of the job was trying to become lincensed and not passing. The most enjoyable expereinece I had at the job was the enviorment.
Employer was called The Wackenhut Corp. Job included monitoring security alarms onsite for TIAA-Cref in Charlotte. Updating the daily report after every shift and making sure security procedures were followed.
HORRIBLE. Do not go to the call center. You will die a slow painful death. The management sucks, systems sucks, no work life balance, mandatory overtime everyday, horrible bonuses, you are a robot there.
Management Consultant (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – March 8, 2014
Pros: great location
Cons: charlotte is congested
Great people to work with and good work if you can get it. The problem with being a contractor is that you usually don't go perm. The managers are great - other contractors are highly skilled - the campus is beautiful. Location is central - close to everything.
