  1. "Excellent People, Collaborative Environment"

      Former Employee - IT Project Manager in Minneapolis, MN

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Ameriprise for less than a year

      Pros

      People Processes well defined Good technology Focused Organization Cafeteria onsite

      Cons

      Small desks that are too crowded for contractors (regardless of level).

      Advice to Management

      Provide larger spaces to work for contract staff. Not enough desk space can be frustrating, chairs easily back into other contractor chairs who share cubes. Not enough space to review paperwork.

      Pros

      Many opportunities to be on challenging and unique projects that aid in great experience and resume building

      Cons

      Contractors are most times treated different than Full Time staff, and leadership can often micromanage. Projects can be demanding where some work long hours week over week, and leadership still demands more

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

      Pros

      Matrix organization structure and each role is very entrepreneurial. You are given tools and resources to leverage to the best of your abilities.

      Cons

      If you’re new or young in the financial industry it’s a very steep learning curve.

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

      Pros

      There are a ton of opportunities for growth if you are willing to grind out the work. There are some good benefits and great people to work with.

      Cons

      A lot of good work goes unacknowledged. People will pat you on your back for something and turn around and give someone else an award for it.

      Advice to Management

      Recognize good employees and give better raises

      Pros

      Positive work culture -- good teamwork Great customer focus

      Cons

      Long, long hours (including weekends and holidays) Inadequate support for work/life balance

      Advice to Management

      Verify resource availability (with appropriate skills) prior to communicating end dates for major initiatives and projects. Unrealistic deadlines have caused us to lose many strong performers to competitors where obtaining work/life balance was possible

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Ameriprise for more than a year

      Pros

      Compensation is reasonable for contractors. Some people are great to work with. Products and Services are competitive and the company makes a lot of money.

      Cons

      You will face an ocean of mediocrity when working with Technology partners. Inaccurate estimates, high complacency, little to none risk avoidance, failure after failure, delay after delay, incredible increase in investment which reflect in your PM reputation. A true PM revolving door. You will regret accepting the offer. Environment is not welcoming. There is no culture, there are no values other than maximize profits.

      Advice to Management

      Hold the Technology teams accountable for estimates and deadlines.

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

      Pros

      Most of the benefits are very good, like on site healthcare, generous planned time off, matching 401k, and recent emphasis on philanthropic volunteering and community giving. Emphasis on diversity at many levels. Many employee networks to become connected and grow in leadership skills. Emphasis on employee development, and many things can be tuition reimbursed. Working from home is possible but depends on the leader,...

      Cons

      Employee development is highly regarded but can feel slow to translate into job transitions. Posted jobs can read extremely specific and targeted to either outside candidates or specific persons with unique combinations of skill set. As a result, many of them stay on the posting boards for a long time or get re-posted and like a home on the market, there is caution before one thinks about applying. Training department...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees more and spend time understanding what can make their jobs more interesting and rewarding, particularly in phone and operations areas. Many leaders are not struggle to do the basics well (regular 1:1 meetings, confirm staff are following processes) because of extra heavy meeting loads. Delegate and grow staff more.
