Solid company. Great for 'newbies'. Nice benefits.
IT Storage Engineer (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – April 11, 2017
Was a great firm to be a part of 10 years ago in the IT field. Somewhat antiquated and unique processes, hardware and methodology where process improvements were easily applied. Massive data amounts, lots of hours beyond 40 per week, outsourcing IT to India, direction of IT uncertain. Training is at mgr's approval although company's policy to promote training.
Beautiful campus, work-from-home program in place. Good place to use for retirement planning and saving but you might not retire from there as an employee.
TIAA has changed from what it was 'financial services for the greater good' which was unique. The IT arena changed leadership every 4 years on average and with it restructuring and job loss. TIAA could use a checks/balances team to ensure best interests of the company, client and operations are enforced and maintained.
Great campus and benefits.
Outsourcing IT to India. Storage hardware changes not based upon personal preferences only.
