I worked at Ameriprise full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good compensation. Great coworkers. Very good manager who actually cared about his team. You can sell whatever you think is best for clients. Base salary. Leads were pretty good when I started.

Cons

Work life balance is pretty bad, late nights and long hours. Technology is terrible, so bad that its not worth complaining about, you have sales to make. The leads are now terrible, these people have been called weekly for 1.5 years by someone different every week. A few unethical Advisors and Managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop Hiring and shrink the dept to 150-200 Advisors.

    Pros

    The payout is good in releation to similar production levels at wire houses

    Cons

    Compliance is very strict. They do not want you to trade stocks they do not cover or reccommend options. The firm has a case number for everything, and does not comprehend that an error is a timely situation.
