I have been working at Ameriprise full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Work independently. Develop business in a variety of ways with focus on the type of client desired. Equity ownership in franchise. Full array of financial products. Good product support at corporate level.

Cons

Lots of internal changes. Changes in payout rates. Lack of support at the advisor/frachise level. Once franchise is sold, not allowed to work for the company. Good array of products, sometimes not competetive for clients.

    Pros

    Franchised offices get a certain level of autonomy and depending on your office you may have room for quick growth

    Home office support and technology lags behind some competitors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time training corporate employees and more money updating technology

    I worked at Ameriprise full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good compensation. Great coworkers. Very good manager who actually cared about his team. You can sell whatever you think is best for clients. Base salary. Leads were pretty good when I started.

    Cons

    Work life balance is pretty bad, late nights and long hours. Technology is terrible, so bad that its not worth complaining about, you have sales to make. The leads are now terrible, these people have been called weekly for 1.5 years by someone different every week. A few unethical Advisors and Managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Hiring and shrink the dept to 150-200 Advisors.
