Talented people on an honorable mission
Sr. Business Analyst - Institutional Product PMO (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 15, 2016
TIAA is a great place to work, if you are looking for a challenging fast-paced environment. I really like the mission, which is to serve those who serve others in the non-profit and not-for-profit spaces. Work hours can be long, but compensation is very fair. The company also embraces telecommuting, which can really boost quality of life if you live in a large metropolitan area where the roads are highly congested (like Houston, TX).
The only "ding" I am giving the company is over job security. I was laid off after 2.5 years due to thin margins, interest rates, etc. They are not the only company that participates in this cost reducing practice. However, I think if you are going to talk about valuing people over all else, you should "walk the walk" and make that move as a last resort.
In any case, I still look back at my time there fondly. I feel as if I grew professionally as a result of my time there. I would gladly accept a position at TIAA in the future, and still recommend the company to anyone who is looking for a rewarding challenge.
Telecommute, fair compensation, challenging work
Light training, gigantic organization
