    I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP). Buy stock at 15% off. Hold it for one year, sell it for long term capital gains (lower tax rate). Buy back even more shares. I have averaged an extra $10,000 per year of long term capital gains over the past three years.

    Tuition Reimbursement: RJF paid for my Masters degree. Plus you get a 20% tax credit on your income tax. I made a profit getting my Masters.

    Cons

    Their conservative philosophy works well for investing; but lousy for management. They need to take more risks in people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be daring. You cannot be both innovative and conservative at the same time. Go back to our old "Work, Work, Play" culture. New ideas emerge when people have fun on company time by exploring new areas with no apparent return on investment. They may discover something new. They may not. However, discouraging play at work will result in no new ideas.
