Bureaucratic & Intense Environment
Wealth Management Associate (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – April 17, 2018
Working for TIAA was very stressful and there was not a good work/life balance. The culture at TIAA is very bureaucratic and old-school and they are not progressive in their ideologies, technology, or thought processes. Management is very biased and it is a good-ole-boy system where they promote based on who you know and how much you are liked.
You have to work with antiquated technology, complex systems, cumbersome processes, and a very sales driven environment.
I went to TIAA because of what they promote as their values but once inside the doors it is a very rigid and intense work environment, very little opportunity for career advancement (mostly lateral moves), and not a warm or welcoming environment.
