    Helping clients!

    Being in control of my own destiny, running my own practice. Sense of building something worthwhile,

    Communicating and sharing the values of my firm with clients,

    Giving back to the community.

    Very hard getting started. Recruiting qualified advisors. Marketing.

    Managing the day to day hassles of running your own business and having that take away from time with my clients.

    Continue to involve independent and employee advisors in the decision process of the firm.

    I worked at Ameriprise full-time

    Pros

    Ameriprise is such a great and diverse company. I loved the environment and people while working there. Many opportunities available to move within the company. Plus they have a variety of employee networks to join so you're always networking.

    Cons

    Office politics can be annoying as with any big corporation.

    Large stable financially sound firm.

    I worked at Ameriprise full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small offices create a "family" atmosphere - everyone matters
    Real client relationships - much more personal interaction than other kinds of office work

    Cons

    100% advisor driven and every office is different. Your experience is what they make it.

    I worked at Ameriprise (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities available and it is a company that stayed cash positive during the housing crisis. So you know they are a financially sound company to work for.

    Cons

    Drawbacks of working for a big company and a small office. You do not get the kickbacks from the company, because you work for a small business owner, but you have the regulations of a big company.

    Pros

    People respect each other, honesty and integrity are valued

    Cons

    There's a high tolerance for doing the least.
    Resources for tech improvements and staffing is scarce so no area of the business will volunteer to take on additional challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Identify the nonperformers and deal with them. Add tech resources - money and staff.

    Pros

    Coworkers
    Well established fiscally healthy company

    Cons

    Each LOB is different, but in my experience the culture doesn't embrace innovation, too many meetings, and good old boys executive team.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change, shows our care about your employees, support more women in senior leadership.
