Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Goshen, NY – October 17, 2018
Went to work for the Goshen, NY office approximately 5 years ago. They hired me part time to train me. After approximately 2 months I was told they wouldn't need me anymore. No warning, nothing. When I was hired I was led to believe the job would become permanent after the office manager returned from maternity leave. She left to have the baby and I was left without a job.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Minnesota – October 10, 2018
This is a good place for new advisors to learn and be trained in the business. However, it is too limiting for experienced advisors. They encourage advisors to rely heavily on high fee managed products and over charge for simple financial planning, which consists mostly of computer generated boilerplate.
Ameriprise is a great place to work. Many employees continue to work at Ameriprise for over 15 years. The most enjoyable part of my job was planning a end of project party for my team to celebrate our successes.
Manager retaliated upon me filing a formal complaint against him through Human Resources. He was very verbally aggressive and abusive towards me which caused me great anxiety and stress. He was unapproachable and horrible to work for and with. He managed by fear and intimidation. And, his staff was fearful of him.
great hours and benefits
Lack of HR support when problems arouse, Company does retaliate even though they stand firm in that they don't, My job was therefore jeopardized because of it.
I was lucky to have a good boss for the short time I was there. Wish I was there longer. There are some cons and that is you are alone in this office and see no one but the advisor. If he had clients come in to see him that will be rare. Majority of the day you are alone. There was not much to learn and no career advancement.
Claims Support Representative (Former Employee) – De Pere, WI – September 27, 2018
The management I had was very unprofessional and the communication was difficult among us. I didn't feel the pay was fair for the amount of hours you'd put into a day or questioned why you were working over time, so obviously she was not aware of the work load.
Associate Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – September 26, 2018
The company is great, but individual teams can be very different in how they do business and treat their employees. The AFA role can be drastically different from practice to practice. Make sure you have a senior advisor who wants to be a mentor.
Senior Auto Claims 1 Adjuster (Current Employee) – Green Bay, WI – September 25, 2018
Stressful days. I have learned how to manage my desk and phone. My leader is the best one I have ever had.The hardest part of the job is the dealing with the stress. You cannot have a great work life balance. I do not feel like we are paid enough for the work and stress we have to deal with.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – September 25, 2018
It was a continuous drive to take care of client needs and bring on new clients. There are unspoken demands and pressure to perform and not a great deal of recognition except for the very top producers
Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 19, 2018
I was promoted from Administrative Assistant to Client Service Coordinator within a 2 year time-frame. Typical day at work consisted of contacting clients regarding appointments, completion of forms, etc.; checking updates in the systems for FA's, providing weekly numbers for goals set week prior; event planning, code calling, following up on financial plans. Ameriprise was an excellent company to advance in your career.
