ConsYou need to be licensed to make any money, even in an admin position

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing really - you hire who you need; you seem very qualified to judge. I was treated well.

Fantastic company!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ameriprise

ProsGreat pay, fantastic environment and general office demeanor.

ConsFinancial jargon was difficult to learn at first -- stepping into an office manager role cold was quite a challenge. As soon as I got used to that, it was smooth sailing.

Ideal Working Conditions

Clerk/Archivist/Records Manager (Current Employee)
East Meadow, NY

I have been working at Ameriprise part-time for less than a year

ProsJeffrey S. London, under whom I work at Ameriprise, is politie, patient, flexible, and considerate to a fault. He has assembled a team, with whom I work, that are identical to him in every way.

ConsThere are none I can think of.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone. "Stay as sweet as you are."
