One of the best companies I have worked for
Underwriter III (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 13, 2019
TIAA was one of the best companies I have worked for. The people and the environment were great. All until TIAA purchased a bank from FL. The FL banks culture led instead of TIAA culture and this lead to the mortgage department becoming no different than any other big lender, including downsizing, layoffs, and a less than desirable culture.

Great Professional Experience
Director (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 11, 2019
Working at TIAA has been one of the best professional experiences of my career. As a working mother, I was able to be a successful professional as well as a great mom. Throughout my time at TIAA, I was able to work remotely and advance in my career.

Unfortunately, with the termination of the remote work policy, I am now searching for a new employer in order to maintain that work/life balance.
Pros
Fantastic Mission Driven Company
Cons
Recent termination of the remote work policy

The most enjoyable part of my day was the nice colleagues I've grown very fond of. Folks tend to have a positive attitude and are always willing to help or give opportunities to learn and grow.
Pros

too much middle management and poor management
Specialist, Record Keeping (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 10, 2019
TIAA is a great company but recent changes and management have made it very stressful and nowhere near the company the founder had in mind. The diversity in higher management is severely lacking.

Very streesful environment
Director of Operations (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 7, 2019
The move to India was a chaotic disorganized mess that created risk and pressure to mid level managers like me. The C level leaders where in disarray after the Chief Digital Officer took much of their responsibilities. Lots of mismanaged change that created a terrible work environment.

Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 5, 2019
Keeps always busy with too many meetings and over expectations.

365 days busy by doing some thing or other.

Unless it is important to senior management, you wont get any support from the management.

Retirement Consultant (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 4, 2019
They'll compensate you well (watch the fine print on the retirement plans). Management is engaged and they've had a culture shift. I don't know that they'll succeed in the space they envision themselves occupying but it's a dynamic place right now.

Happy not to be working here.

Being Dragged Down to the Mean
Client Relationship Consultant (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 15, 2019
What once was a great company with a great mission is no more. Greed and need to survive in competitive financial services landscape has led the company to lose sight of its mission and if you are not on board with the new mission of pushing products, and selling at all costs with no regard for ethics and the client, then you are managed to the margins. The NY Times article was completely true and set the company scrambling a little over a year ago. The CEO went on a PR tour but it was nothing more than lip service. Fortunately or unfortunately the masses have short memories. The culture has changed for the worse, not the best and continues to do so, as it does away with work remotely options and generous paid time off policy.

Hypocrisy and discrimination rules!
Financial Service Consultant (Current Employee) –  Lewisville, TXFebruary 13, 2019
Poor management and discrimination. If you don't hang out with managers or don't have inside networks, you're just a number. They promote based on who they know rather than based on qualifications.
Pros
Benefit programs
Cons
Your hard work is ignored. Managers decide your fate. A lot of discrimination.

Delivery manager and key technical SME liaising (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 11, 2019
One of the best organizations that I have worked for. The peer group, leadership and environment was the embodiment of a good corporate culture. The mission statement and the founding principles should be a guiding light for other organizations.

Low morale. Poor management. No work life balance.
Recordkeeping Specialist (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 7, 2019
The was great to work for with excellent benefits. Poor management in the Operations Department. Promotions were dictated by the Sr. Director. He hand picked who he wanted in certain positions. It wasn't about what you knew but who you knew.
Pros
Onsight cafeteria, convenient.
Cons
Low morale. Poor management. No work life balance.
