I have been working at Ameriprise full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

They pay for your licenses. The trainers do their best to prepare you for trying to work with clients. A stepping stone to a better firm.

Cons

Too many to list. Long hours, diminished client base. Toxic management and expectation from them to churn client accounts. Most advisors don't make it past 2 years. The system almost seems designed to get people termed after 18-24 months. The job has continually gotten worse in the two years I have been there. The senior leadership does not seem to understand what is happening in a rather large department of their company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a new system, your current one is broken.

    Pros

    Emphasis on development and learning, espeically in their Financial Leadership Development Program. Paying for finanical exams and having technical classes are helfpul. They rotate you around which is great.

    Cons

    Hard to move around in the company. There isn't much room for growth (especially at Columbia Managment in Boston). There isn't much focus on paying entry level. The focus is on the sales team. That is where there is growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more growth opportunities for those outside of sales. Sales team is paid very much and perks go to them. Would be nice to share the love.
