I have been working at Raymond James Financial

Pros

The culture is amazing. There are several events and programs that encourage employee growth, charitable events and just plain fun (ask someone about Halloween). Some of the most flexible and understanding managers I've ever worked for. Very stable even without comparing them to other businesses in the industry. They are very conservative in decision-making in order to control and maintain growth.

Cons

All that said, there is very little pay in any career paths that don't directly involve trading. For some, the cultural and non-monetary compensations stop making up for the gap in pay with respect the responsibilities they are asked to take on. Promotions are also done only once a year - so it's easy to be doing the work of a position for most of a year and not be paid for it until December. And even then, if the pool of budgeted money runs out, you could be waiting another year. I've also seen a failure to deliver on reimbursement for continuing education, even when it directly applies to the position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that while being conservative has enabled you to stay afloat through some truly traumatic economic events, you are also losing amazing talent by not loosening the belt just a little.

    Pros

    It is a very conservative and safe company. They do not have a history of layoffs or job reductions. Safe bet.

    Cons

    The promotion process is not very slow due to the fact that the work force is not really that skilled within the company. It is very silo'd (sp?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More cross training and things that would broaden each individual associate experience within the company would be very beneficial. As is, the system does not allow for a comprehensive understanding of the business.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to learn. Senior management is very accessible. Everyone is on a first name basis. The CEO will get lunch in the cafeteria and stand in line like everyone else.

    Cons

    Like anything, each person's experience will be determined mostly by his or her immediate supervisor. And like everywhere, there are good managers and there are bad managers.
