Ameriprise Financial Employee
in Glendale, CA

"I was a full time employee at the Glendale, CA location. I have had plenty of full-time jobs and in different industries. This was by far the worst ever. My boss/the broker was a narcissist who played favorites. My coworker was a real jerk who was always late, always disrespectful, and always obnoxious. My boss didn’t care. She was a very poor manager. When I got sick and had to take medical leave, she fired me. If you’re looking for job security and consistency, you won’t find it at the Glendale, CA location. You will work overtime and not get paid. You will get fired if you get sick. And I don’t mean a simple doctors note. I mean, real, legitimate medical issues where the state certifies it as well. The lady/the broker that has posted an assistant/operations manager position is someone with no conscience. She is the boss that I worked for. My job is now available because she can’t control her emotions. She will fire you just because you are on medical leave and because she “has a nervous breakdown”, which will be at least twice a week. Good luck dealing with her and her uncontrollable emotions. I wouldn’t recommend even my worst enemy to work at the Glendale, CA location. It’s no wonder she is losing her clients on a daily basis. They can tell what a shipwreck she is. And good luck dealing with the coworker you will be sharing a room with. When I say he is obnoxious, rude, and psychotic, trust me there, words are nothing. My description is an understatement. He is the worst coworker ever, who will break all boundaries and to be honest is in many ways the reason her clients are leaving on a daily basis. Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t yet know who the real problem is. She thought that by firing me she would feel relaxed, but she doesn’t know the real devil is still working for her. Good luck to anyone who thinks they can work at the Glendale, CA location. Only two employees working there."

"My experience with Ameriprise has been rewarding. I learned a lot regarding their protocol and support platform. Ameriprise is a high profile company and it was a pleasure to be a part of their team. I was especially appreciative of Rick Stensrud, the lead technician for the group. He allowed me the opportunities to resolve problems and support the technology in the building and other sites."

"This company absolutely doesn't understand how economy works and the core responsibility of IT. The major issues is how the business thinks. They except you to be a servant, work 24/7, and be knowledgeable of everything they do. Lazy assholes run the company. Do not invest here and do not work here."

"Solid place to begin a career, but future growth opportunities limited"

What do you like about working at Ameriprise Financial?

"In you are looking for an entry into the world of financial services, Ameriprise is an excellent place to begin a career. Training and personal development are top notch at the entry level to mid management positions, and its possible to gain a great deal of experience by moving within the firm's many business lines."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If possible, make a connection with a current employee of the firm so you can be referred with an open position. Referrals are taken pretty seriously at Ameriprise and candidates who were recommended by existing employees often get looked at first."

What don't you like about working at Ameriprise Financial?

"Upon reaching a middle management level position, additional career growth is pretty limited. Upper level positions (VP and above) are often filled through external searches and compensation packages are based on midwest salary data (low compared to East / West coast firms). As a result, the firm pays a premium to replace lost talent instead of promoting from within and paying more competatively."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"If the greatest asset of the firm is its people (a stated value of management in company materials), it would be wise to increase that investment to retain talent and promote from within for higher level positions as opposed to getting talent walk out the door and paying more to replace with some hot prospect from outside the firm."
