Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 13, 2017
The workplace is great. It is a team environment and a very positive place to work. Not very much opportunity for growth. The only way to grow is leave the company and come back later when a better opportunity has presented itself.
I would not recommend TIAA for Wealth Management Advisors who want to be able to think on your own and run your own business. This position is very micromanaged and very data entry driven. It is hard core sales. Not much support. Work life balance is non existent if you are to make your goals.
If you can produce results and prove your worth this is not a place you can advance in your career. The only advancement is given to those employees that are in the manager's clicks. Promotions are not given on results but on who the manager's believe is most like them in which they like them better.
TIAA-CREF was a wonderful company to work for, had the perfect hours to work 7-4, the manager that I had to report to was an outstanding manager, was willing to work with you and anything you didn't quite understand she was willing to get you the tools you needed.
Great private company. Small family feel; great people and culture. I would recommend as a place to work, although, when I was there, they did not allow working from home, which would have allowed for a better work, life balance.

Sr. Digital Marketing Strategist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 25, 2017
I worked for TIAA as a consultant for 18 months and found a very positive culture. Since I had to learn the organization the employees were very helpful in getting me up-to-speed and were respectful of me just learning and very patient.
ability to move from CW to FTE is not always possible
The culture at tiaa is very competitive. If you don't respond and compete at a high level, you are talked to and even written up. They pay well and even pay great bonuses but that might be changing soon.
