Ask a lot of questions about who your direct supervisor will be and ask to be paired with a female mentor from the get-go. They are there and getting in with that mindset will help ensure success.

    When I first started, many employees were remote, which I thought was progressive. But there are unwritten rules about needing to come to the office at least 3 times a week to show your presence, schmooze, etc.

  • Recommend to Women?

    There are departments within TIAA that strive to empower women and even offer good female mentors. However, the one I was in went rather "rogue" and was able to follow whatever rules they wanted with little consequence. This particular group, left to their own devices and with no watchful eye over them, operates in an good ole boys network kind of way. They know what they're doing and fully support the others in the network. When I tried to strike out, effect change, try a different approach, then the pack came after me. P.S. - TIAA changed their name last year from TIAA-CREF to TIAA,

Look carefully at who your direct supervisor and chain of command will be. Research those people on LinkedIn. There are good women leaders at TIAA and if you're lucky enough to get in one of their departments and even become mentored by them, you'll have a very good experience.

    The rules are in place to create flexibility, but if you use them, you're "dinged" when it comes time to rate your performance...

  • Recommend to Women?

    TIAA is a big employer and there are many good departments run by women leaders, doing great things for gender parity. My particular department did not.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    My particular department at TIAA needs structure and leadership. It is such a siloed organization. There are departments that can run amuck and cause havoc within the general company, which happened in User Experience.

Great Place to work with generous maternity leave and time-off. Upper level management is more male dominated, but not as much as heavily seen in other organizations

Good flexibility with hours and telecommuting, but many individuals still frown upon telecommuting.
