    I have been working at Ameriprise full-time

    Pros

    Ameriprise has great benefits and creates a great atmosphere/place to work. There are many different organizations and Networks to join to meet people and network as well.

    Cons

    Pay is not comparable to similar roles at other companies. A lot of the atmosphere also depends on what department you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth, regardless of what they made in a previous role. Otherwise good people will leave for other companies.
