Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Vienna, VA – September 14, 2012
I started my career not long out of college with American Express Financial advisors (now Ameriprise). It's been a good 9+ years but with so much change in management structure, it is hard to move up and advance which is what I want. Time for me to take a look elsewhere.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – De Pere, WI – January 30, 2016
I worked for Ameriprise Auto and Home Insurance for almost 10 years. It went from a small customer based insurance company that cared about it's customers as individuals to a larger customer based insurance company that did not look at the customer as much as a person but as a number and it's employees much the same. Growth changed the company and made it a hard place to work and feel valued, or feel like I was making a difference for my customers.

Business Continuity Intern (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 13, 2016
Daily tasks consisted of attending meetings in the mornings. Following meetings, I often worked on sifting through documents to find information for the business to put into an intranet database for the company.
Ameriprise is a great company to start. The pay does not reflect the additional skills and experience you gain thru your career. The people are great. I loved the environment and will miss my co-workers.
Site Administrator/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – January 10, 2016
In all my years of working at Ameriprise Financial Services, I had a great working relationship with all the managers and staff. It was like a family and since they knew I was conscientious about doing a good job, they let me do my job and if I had any issues I was comfortable enough with everyone that I could get assistance from them.
Excellent benefits including a 401K and retirement plan along with stock ownership of the company.
financial advisor (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – December 18, 2015
This might be the worst place to go, not only to work, but to get any kind of financial advice. When I worked there as an advisor, the only consideration as to what kind of financial plan to create for a client was "let's figure out what brings in the highest commission". There was never any consideration (though we went through the motions) for the clients financial situation, it was all about the commission. All we were instructed to do was present as a solution, in most cases the most inappropriate financial products given the clients circumstances, but solutions that would generate the most commission. Anyone who goes to Ameriprise, either to work or for financial advice is making a big mistake.
No growth for assistant. Typical day expenses, expense, filing, meeting, meeting, more meeting and take all work home with you. Didn't learn anything new. Management sucks. I have never felt so belittle in a workplace. Worst place to work. So many lay offs! Good luck! Hardest part is no structure.
