    I have been working at Ameriprise full-time (More than 10 years)

    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

    Pros

    Very competitive with their salary, PTO, sick time and benefits. The company supports all volunteer opportunities and does gift matching.

    Cons

    Working downtown especially if you drive into the city because it's expensive to park. It's hard to advance if you're not in a financial role.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team they can provide great feedback and can be a really good resource.
