Good place to work. Limited advancement.
Overall, I was very thankful for my time with Ameriprise. I appreciate the financial planning first approach. Unless you join a big and growing franchise however, it may be difficult to advance from a paraplanner to an advisor in my experience.

Excellent Opportunity
Your experience here depends entirely on your boss if you work for a franchisee. They have control over your pay, benefits, and workplace culture. The work life balance is pretty good, and the work is fulfilling as you are helping people.

Normal small work environment
Day-to-day tasks, worked under a team of financial advisors. small business, had to wear multiple hats to help the business move along. Best part of the job was the regional meetings and perks that the company offers.

I was under contract
None of the above regarding employment apply since I was contracted. They were fair and paid commissions I earned. Registered Investment Advisor-commission based only. Series 6, 63, 65, I had brought in four million dollars in assets. This was under a contracting relationship.

Great Place to start if you are in FA business
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.
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.

Long career but tough to move up
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.
