    I worked at Ameriprise (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This position is a behind the scenes role, your primary role is to assist the financial advisor. Its a good role to sharpen your financial planning skill set.

    Cons

    Promotion to financial advisor might not come as fast as you want, it really depends on your qualifications to be an advisor. Which entails you to be multi-skilled not only on a technical skill set but also a good understanding of client psychology.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really.
