I had a great experience at RJF. I learned a lot about the corporate world and how to act in a professional manner.

I have been working at Raymond James Financial as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Most of the departments are pretty laid back and everyone is easy to talk to. You are a part of a team and not just "an intern."

Cons

I did not learn a lot about Accounting but I did do some internal auditing, which has been a big help in my career search process.

    I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love the company, our clients and the people I work with over the phone at the home office. I run the office and am the only admin person here, so I am basically my own boss.

    Cons

    My boss! (I can't go into detail due to the rules on posting reviews.) I am sure that most Branch Mgr.s are great people though. Mine is just that "one in a million".

    Pros

    No Micro-managing, management/supervisors are flexible and allow us to work from home when needed, good work-life balance. Team gets along well for the most part. There are many, many dynamic, driven and talented individuals at RJ, plenty of high-caliber mentors. My team is encouraged to get any license they'd like to obtain. Good support from leadership, company engages in community service initiatives, and is working to improve diversity. Good benefits, profit sharing (cheap 401k match though) health insurance, etc.

    Cons

    Pay is low, despite education and licensing. "Good old boys" mentality is rampant, but new leadership is changing that dynamic (albeit slowly). The general concensus is that anyone who went to the University of Florida walks on water; these people have established their own 'secret society' in which the choice positions and projects are reserved for "Gators". Middle management is an issue- many of them are older, have been at the firm over 10 years, are used to things being a certain way and are uncomfortable with change. Moving internally is difficult (unless, of course, you went to UF).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of middle management, diversify those in charge, give people who DIDN'T go to UF a chance to grow at the company, too. Evaluate middle managers and the priviliges they give each other. FIX HR- the department is a mess. Other than that, I am very confident in the changes Paul Reilly will bring and has brought thus far. Very competent leadership.
