    Pros

    Great group of people who truly care about the job and the work we do. Executive leadership team does a great job communicating and being available to everyone in the organization. The company works hard to make sure employees feel valued and have a good work/life balance. Strong fast growth is providing lots of advancement opportunties. Great benefits package including retirement/401k, generous PTO, closed holidays and Sundays with a Saturday rotation.

    Cons

    The company's technology is outdated and cumbersome. The system is not intuitive at all, and is a bit quirky. That being said, this is an area the company has recognized and is taking steps to rectify.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to do what you're doing with regards to employee satisfaction, client satisfaction.

    Pros

    Difficult to get fired they need bodies in seats desperately.

    Cons

    Their performance measurements are unclear and always changing. If you ask for clarity on how you are being measured you get a different answer every time. It's hard to excel if you and not certain what exactly you are being measured by. Expect to put comparative negligence on a portion of your files. Management will expect you to find some negligence on every claimant even for cut and dry claims. Not very ethical and likely not in compliance with the DOI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate your processes and make them more streamlined you have your overworked staff wasting time on non relevant tasks. Take inniative to make your employees happy and create a positive atmosphere. If you listen your staff will gladly tell you how to do that. Retaining your employees is a difficult task for Ameriprise. It doesn't take a lot of business sense to realize it cost less to retain employees rather than hire and train new ones all the time. You hire people for their experience because you don't want to invest in training however you don't except imput from those with a lot if experience. Your staff is dying to show you how to operate more efficient and effectively.

    Pros

    Decent pay and commission plan, great benefits. Very nice amount of PTO. Holidays off etc.

    Cons

    Micro managed to the max, constantly changing guidelines, if you call in sick after a packer game they ding you double attendence points (so do not get sick during football season). They make it impossible for there sales reps to get a promotion. Dress code sucks, cant even where what you want on saturdays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the trusted employees have a longer leash.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, growing company, good product to sell, good communication and consistent managers who are helpful

    Cons

    In sales work on the phone all day every day, no room for advancement, bad work/life balance including working weekends, heavy micromanagement, hard to get any time off in the summer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give sales agents more opportunities to provide and develop the company, no one likes working on the phones all day every day and many agents want to take on additional responsibilities

    Pros

    Has good financial backing and some good front line employees. Is involved in the community.

    Cons

    Poorly managed and consultants have to be hired every 7 years or so to try and get the company back on track. A lot of favortism shown and is part of the reasons why there is a poor management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the favortism and hold Supervisors, managers, Vice Presedents more accountable.

    Pros

    Growth for go -getters and reward for performance. Leadership very personal and approachable. Generous pto and benefits. Free parking and subsidized cafeteria with wide variety.

    Cons

    Current legal dept inexperienced. To much limitation by parent company and finance dept. In selecting project work. Mid level leaders are a mixed bag with some fantastic while others disappointing and no accountability. Few outside experienced leaders creates limited viewpoints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need mandatory retirement age and more accountability for mid level leaders and staff functions. Need better counsel who understands the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they think they're doing a pretty good job; who am I to try to change their minds?
