    I have been working at Ameriprise full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smaller offices than big banks so you get to work with people more on a face to face basis. If you're lucky enough to work with advisors that actually care, which are few and far in between, you may learn a little bit.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a clue how to run a business. They change how they do things like the wind. No real leadership. They promote whoever works more than their fair share for the longest amount of time with the least amount of complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified people, not whoever is friends with so and so.
