    I worked at Ameriprise full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, generous 401(k) and retirement plan match, decent PTO and a company culture which encourages employees to use it. Respectful work culture. Headquarters perks such as cafeteria, gym, and medical clinic.

    Cons

    Salaries below market, and annual merit increases less than inflation. Absence of women and minorities in upper level leadership roles. Development and growth opportunities are limited the higher up you climb.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize and track diversity retention and hold upper management accountable for results. Hire and promote women and minorities to leadership roles. Recognize that a "good fit" with company culture is code for "will fit in with the white old boys club" and adjust accordingly. Match market rate base pay to keep employees happy.
