    I worked at Ameriprise

    Pros

    Minneapolis is a nice town to get around in. There are a number of employee networks you can belong to. The company has a high profile in the community and has projects like Habitat for Humanity that you can be involved in.

    Cons

    Environment can be political. Too much autonomy is individual departments where managers can take advantage of employees without protocol or process.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is awesome, approachable and genuine. Middle management needs to learn how to be more transparent and fair. Experimental roles and initiatives need greater structure and precedence.

For example, our Technology area is filled with bureaucracy that makes getting any technology changes accomplished very time consuming and very expensive. This makes it very challenging to quickly respond to business opportunities...

    Advice to Management

    I think you should replace the upper-level Technology leadership with business leaders and align the goals of this area with those of the business units. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need (or want) technology careerists to run the Technology area.
