Nuveen is a challenging place to work. There is constant organizational changes and poor leadership. Nuveen lacks effective managers and inspirational leaders. Often the wrong people are in charge.

Nuveen was bought over by TIAA and at my time of employment there were still mapping out their IT strategy. This meant a lot of policy changes and management changes as well. Overall the company is great to work for but some of these changes between the parent company (TIAA) and Nuveen can still be ongoing

Certain groups are better to work in than others. Since TIAA took over, the company has changed a lot- not all for the better. Growing pains from a small company like Nuveen to a big company with a lot of bureaucracy like TIAA.

Good atmosphere with a rich history in the asset management industry. Many options for career progression if you are willing to keep evolving and willing to adapt.

I worked for Nuveen for almost 10 years and all of my time there was very satisfying and productive. Unfortunately, there was a cost cutting plan in place and many senior people were released in March of 2019. I am a talented fixed income professional who has worn many hats. From portfolio management, credit analysis, client relationship management, asset gathering, technical writing and personnel management.

C'mon people, get it together. What are we working on? Who is going to do what by when? It seems that the senior ranks are so clueless as to basic project management that they want to appear above it all by delegating anything that would help clarify basic logistics of the real work safely beneath them.

Excellent company to work for, but not much upward movement. Great work life balance, mission-driven and in its own class in terms of financial services.

Nuveen is a great place to work. They truly care about their staff and clients. The operate their business with the highest levels of honesty and integrity. Their benefits are superb and the corporate culture and core values are second to none. There are many opportunities for learning and being promoted at Nuveen. It's a superb place with superb people.

More reorgs than an average person can wrap their heads around and negatively impacts culture and morale. Direction of organization is not clear and upper management is disorganized.

Management has a history of over promising and under delivering. Lots of talk each year on huge growth opportunities but constantly fail to deliver. Additionally, it is well known that they underpay relative to their competitors.
Pros
Work/life balance
Cons
Compensation, lack of career advancement

The culture is an old boys club. Very cliquish. It's much more of a plutocracy than a meritocracy. Also, the Nuveen culture seems very oily in comparison to its parent company. Very good compensation and product suite are the strong aspects to the firm.

Performance reviews are designed to both evaluate general performance and measure progress around specific goals. Both negative and positive aspects are incorporated in these reviews as they should serve as a point of reference to both look back in evaluation and ahead in anticipation. Pulling back from daily demands in order to assess and review employee performance allows managers to focus their attention on specific departments and clarify what is high priority to their company.

This company is stuck in their old ways and doesn't do anything to evolve and grow. I had a manager who didn't even know how to use Microsoft word or excel. She could barely use a computer! You only get noticed if you worked there for 10 or more years and they don't help you to advance or grow. The only thing that made me stay was the benefits and retirement incentives.

Not a good culture in my experience, one sided, heavy on management side, not taking into consideration employees' recommendations. Very hard to advance internally.
