    I have been working at Ameriprise

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to get licenses and designations without paying out of pocket. I also like that we are a client relationship based firm and not just a place to call your trades in. Ameriprise has a strong fundamental concept with its approach, though I feel that sometimes upper management does not realize what all of its "change" will feel like when it trickles to the advisors and staff on the franchise level.

    Cons

    pay is lower than the competition, but job security is better. Compromises have to be made sometimes... Also they need to work on training their call service people a little more. It is frustrating to call in to solve a client's issue and getting 3-4 different answers from different people. This creates additional leg work and cuts down on productivity.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a good idea to extend corporate benefits to the franchisees to make working for a franchise more appealing. Senior management need to target nore training opportunities towards staff because more often than not they are the ones using many of the new improved technologies.
