    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Ameriprise full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Boss is a top performer, fun to work with, and can be accommodating. (The boss is the only reason I did not give less stars) Pay could be better, but not bad for my lifestyle. Company operated well during quarantine. Company constantly trying to find ways to better itself.

    Cons

    My job was supposed to be a few months through a temp agency then hired on full time. This has not happened. It's been a year and a half of stress and letdowns, not to mention a 3 week unemployed gap due to delayed paperwork to extend my contract. This has nothing to do with me as an individual and everything to do with the lack of action between the companies I provide support to.
