A Difficult Pyramid Sales Culture
Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Brookfield, WINovember 8, 2014
Pros: commissions were great
Cons: no work/life balance and no guidance or training from management
This position was sold as a chance to help people. The company made no attempt to hide that they expected you to work hard, long hours. The company sold the idea that a new hire could work hard for 3 or 4 years and then be making outstanding money while working minimal hours. The company expected employees to work 57 hours per week at a minimum. Less – more... than 5% of hires become successful at this company, but they will hire anybody. Those that do become successful are promoted to become "managers" that are given all of the clients that those who do not succeed under their "management" were able to gain. – less

Great Place to start if you are in FA business
Financial Planning Analyst (Former Employee), Fairfax, VAOctober 2, 2014
Pros: great lunches, i was going for lunches with my boss everyday out in the nearby restaurants.
Cons: no carrier growth or opportunity, you have to be in the field for a very long time to build a book of clients.
Typical days start from 10-6, depending on the advisor you work for.
You will learn a lot about stock, bonds, mutual funds, annuities and etc.
If you are thinking of FA company to work for, ask if they require you to sell insurance (any kind), big payoffs but nobody likes it and nobody wants it.

Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOSeptember 17, 2014
A typical day at work for me was answering the phones, directing clients to advisors and filing client files.
I learned how to interact with clients/customers on a more personal and face to face basis and the ins and out of caring for an office.
My co workers were quiet, when there.
The job was enjoyable being in a laid back environment, clients were – more... usually interesting to interact with and the lunch meetings were great! – less

Be Careful
Sales Agent (Former Employee), Green Bay WisconsinSeptember 16, 2014
Cons: call center....horrible managment
Constant pressure meeting metrics.....call center setting so always busy...be prepared to take 50 calls a day unless your on mandatory overtime which is basically the entire summer....then expect more....hours are horrible...they change every 6 months and you could be working anywhere from 6 am until 12 am.....so if you have kids or a family...good – more... luck planning around that....managment doesnt care about anything but themselves...they act like they care about you and your issue but at the end of the day your just a number and if your not producing then they will find someone else – less

Big corporate culture, but good people
Manager - Corporate office (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MNAugust 23, 2014
Pros: generous vacation time
Cons: corporate culture
Ameriprise is a big bureaucracy, and has all of the problems inherent in corporate America - too many layers of management, excessive corporate-speak, etc. The people themselves are generally great, though. The benefits, especially paid time off are good, and it's hard to really complain about a job that is secure, comfortable, and pays the bills. The – more... place is cubicle-city, though, and the people who do well and advance are the ones who can drink the Kool-Aid, speak the corporate language, and play the game of pretending to care about things that don't actually matter much in the larger world. – less

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
