    Pros

    Great training programs for systems and customer service from the home office. In the 21st century with their technology, many clients are tech savvy and appreciate this.

    Cons

    I worked in a branch and therefore was never able to visit the home office in MN. Would have liked to had assigned people in the home office that took care of our branch as opposed to getting a new person every time we had to call for assistance.

    I have been working at Ameriprise as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was able to use it as a resume builder, found out what I don't like in a corporate structure.

    Cons

    I had accepted and fully understood that I would be unpaid for this position, but I wanted to use it as a learning experience. Some of that occurred, along with having to file papers and bring partners coffee. Little respect was given as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't belittle the people who work for you, even if they are unpaid interns. Let them learn, not be your secretary.

    I have been working at Ameriprise full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great variety of tasks and responsibilities each day, great work/life balance, a very professional work environment, some training opportunities, and access to great research and trading platform.

    Cons

    Limited career advancement, few benefits, a sales company- so if you don't like sales this career/company is not for you. Ameriprise always seems to be a few steps behind regarding technology.

    Franchise of Ameriprise

    I have been working at Ameriprise full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Franchises have the freedom & flexibility to create our own client service model, so each franchise will be different. If looking at joining a franchise, be sure to find one that is consistent with your professional goals & values. Team based working environment. Managing partners provide professional guidance.

    Cons

    Weekly technology issues, which was a corporate issue & not the franchise. Within franchises there can be conflicting messages regarding employee roles & responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase involvement and/or awareness of how the company is being managed on a day to day basis, and how middle management is communicating with employees. Create a measurement of success for employees.

    I worked at Ameriprise as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are always fun and caring and sometimes laid back, which is nice. Strong company. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    I felt extremely undervalued here. They had a pretty intense interview session and they like picking top candidates for here, but I quickly came to realize the work was so mundane. For everyone in the office.

    Basically, if you aren't the advisor yourself, you'll be stuck under someone who will make you do grunt work for the rest of your time there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide an environment that allows your subordinates to grow and apply themselves

    I worked at Ameriprise full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good entry level opportunity to learn skills and get series 7 and 66 while being paid, pay was decent for the job you do, something good to put on your resume when you're right out of school. It's a very good company I just have a negative experience with this particular franchise office.

    Cons

    worked in a very small office.. 3 people including myself, my boss was creepy for lack of better terms and could get away with inappropriate conversation topics in such a small office; at will employment- meaning you can be fired for anything. If working for this company work for corporate office or a larger practice
