Fine if you don't mind bending over backwards for advisors and management
Registered Support Associate (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 23, 2014
Pros: free lunches now and again, good way to learn multitude of advisor businesses, cut-ins can be profitable
Cons: too busy to ever take breaks, sometimes overtime that is essentially "unpaid" since you need preapproval first, management doesn't listen (surprise)
If you get in good with an advisor or two, you're usually fine. Most advisors however are the most needy, demanding, unappreciative individuals who won't hesitate to work you like a dog. The "voluntary cut-in program" allows advisors to bonus you, however it's just a way to take the responsibility of paying or bonusing staff off the company itself, – more... as the cut-in comes from advisors paychecks if they even elect to cut you in. You can make a decent bonus though and not feel like an endentured servant trying to learn the industry, if you're lucky enough to work with a good advisor. However, that's up to management who only looks at the production levels of the advisor to determine how many you'll support. Since that's NO indication of how busy you'll be, you can get overwhelmed and for no bonuses. – less

High energy position
Registered Support Assistant (Former Employee), Roseville, CAJune 3, 2014
Learned how to multitask such as cashiering, answering telephones for 14 financial advisers as well as work with five financial advisers with $1,000,000 in production.

The branch manager was very supportive of all my efforts. The co-workers were very helpful and fun to work with on a daily basis.

The most difficult part of working at Ameriprise was – more... trying to study for the Series 66 while working 10+ hour daily and taking care of my family life.

Meeting and speaking with clients was the best part of my job as I was able to help them by serving their needs. – less

Unfortunate Manager
Office Administrator and Client Support (Former Employee), Novi, MichiganMay 23, 2014
Pros: interactions with clients and co-workers
Cons: management and 60-70 hours per week
I was extremely professional and had great interaction with all my co-workers and clients. I learned a lot about financial planning and complete management of the office. That was definitely the highlight of my position. However, the offices of Ameriprise Advisors are all franchises and the Manager/Owner of the financial firm I worked for was tyranical, – more... abusive, made numerous jokes of a very unprofessional nature and finally I decided it was time to walk away and start my family. – less

The Ameriprise Adviser Center is a place for monotonous work with no room for personal growth.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVMay 16, 2014
The Ameriprise Adviser Center in Las Vegas, NV has changed from a place for young talent interested in the financial industry to gain experience, learn, and grow to a monotonous gear box designed to churn "clients" for their money.

Very productive and busy
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVMay 14, 2014
Cons: healthcare, compensation
On a typical day I answer phone calls from advisors that need assistant with either transferring an account to or from Ameriprise or they need asssistance with opening an new account. I learn new things everyday, there's never a dull moment. The hardest thing about my job is trying to decipher what the caller is asking.

misleading company hiring process
Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Las VegasApril 11, 2014
The company was great when I started but when they shifted how the employees should operate it negated everything promised from the interviews to obtain the job. I would not tell anyone to seek employment from this company who is a go getter and trend setter.
