    I worked at Ameriprise

    Pros

    Great benefits, the company truly cares about its employees. Unbelievable 401k company contributions. Management is always available to listen for suggestions or creative feedback

    Cons

    Some long hours at times, but the pros far out weight the cons. It does take awhile to get built up to maximum PTO hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure there is always an open door policy.

    I have been working at Ameriprise

    Pros

    I have been with this company for 8 years! They have really good benefits. They have great training and opportunities and recognition. In my experiences, I have had great teachers and are willing to help me reach my goals.

    Cons

    The salary levels should be better as well as bonuses. It would be nice to see an improvement especially if you have given 5, 10 or more years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are really good at relaying information and stats in company town halls. They keep us up-to-date with the field and our competitors.

    I worked at Ameriprise part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a a lot of flexibility to make of it what you want to. The people your working with really make the experience. I was lucky enough to work with a small team of intelligent, hard working professionals and respected each other and communicated well.

    Cons

    The technology and support from headquarters could use a lot of improvement. Often updates, software bugs and other issues would be the biggest hindrance to productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on technological improvement and supporting your advisers and you will do far.

    Decision-making takes longer than needed and the rationale for certain tasks directed do not always make sense.
