An assistant position at an Ameriprise franchise is a good way to get your foot in the door of financial services.

Financial Advising Assistant (Former Employee)
Fairfax, VA

I worked at Ameriprise part-time for less than a year

ProsEmployees and advisers are friendly, honest, productive, helpful. The adviser gives you a good sense of what being an adviser is actually all about. Once the adviser has confidence in your ability, he or she will generally allow you to take on all of the responsibilities of an adviser, aside from the ones precluded to you by law. The adviser helps you understand sales in a way that simultaneously retains clients as genuine friends.

ConsThere were not many cons. Depending on the number of accounts your adviser handles and client needs, you may need to stay past the usual eight hours, but this is rare. Currently, it is difficult if not impossible to be hired as an adviser with Ameriprise.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe only dissonance between my instincts and the adviser's routine was probably just a generational difference. Any younger employee may naturally feel that an older adviser is focused to an extreme on traditional social convention as opposed to online marketing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Hire management who… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
