Sleepy and timid culture despite grandiose visions

Compliance Officer (Current Employee)

I have been working at TIAA-CREF full-time for more than a year

ProsDecent pay, good benefits, benign neglect.

ConsNot a high performance culture. Everything takes longer than it should. Have to remind people over and over for any request. Nice place to hang out - don't count on getting much done.

Advice to Senior Managementhave a cup of coffee, make some decisions, quit coddling sycophantic dawdlers

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
