Pros

physically nice workspace, EXCELLENT in-house Raymond James school for learning, good comraderie among employees. the in-house education was fantastic, during work hours, and helped one constantly keep abreast of the changes in the financial world.

Cons

no advancement beyond stated "levels" no matter how qualified you may be. no moving from Level 3 to Level 5 without first going through the hoops of Level 4, even if you clearly are capable and pick things up quicker than your peers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

promote people based on work product and skillset rather than just how long they've been with the company.

    Pros

    Open to diversity in the work place, with a superb effort in trying to equalize the workforce, middle management and senior management. They are pushing to bring in and elevate women in management as well as minorities. The workplace is generally stable and there are work excellence recognition programs in place. There is the "Raymond James University" with job relevant training courses. There is the opportunity to transfer within the company and managment is generally supportive of those transfers.

    Cons

    There is an obvious lack of an "Open Door" with senior management. There is a definite "coldness" if you try to approach senior management with issues or concerns.

    They hire employees for their expertise and then turn a deaf ear to that expertise and hire consultants.

    Bonuses are lopsided - high grossing financial advisors and senior management get large bonuses - standard associates get miniscule rewards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your employees - establish a true "Open Door" policy where an associate feels safe in bringing their concerns to you - not all issues that require an open door policy are HR related.
