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

    Pros

    The culture, the people, the financial health and the overall investment to grow the organization. Diversity of business with advice and wealth management, asset management, insurance and annuities and auto & home allow Ameriprise to be uniquely positioned and continue to remain profitable even in a volatile market. An excellent organization where one can add value and contribute regardless of level. An organization that has a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    Titles sometimes are not as competitive with the industry. Pay close attention to the cash incentives. They might appear lower in target but that is because you have an opportunity to leverage your bonus up to 200%.. Historically Ameriprise has paid out above target considering the financial health of the company has been so strong.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you to all the executive leaders within Ameriprise that lead our organization with such integrity and cultivate an employee driven culture
