I worked at Raymond James Financial as a contractor

Pros

My co-workers were nice and helpful.

Cons

IT Management has no clue as to which direction they are heading. You can't effectively run a company by only looking at operational cost. Without good IT people for support, the core business won't run smoothly no matter how much business is brought in.

Advice to Management

Stop looking at everything from a cost savings perspective and think about your employees. Loyalty has to go both ways.

    I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time

    Pros

    Great reputation in the market place. Cutting edge technology. Great support of Financial Advisors and their practices. Several flexible distribution channels to fit a variety of delivery profiles. Encourages Financial Advisors to be very client-centric and focus on what is best for the individual clients.

    Cons

    After six years of working with Raymond James, the only negative comment would be the brand doesn't necessarily generate foot traffic from the general investing public; however, most RJ advisors have already built their practice and don't need additional foot traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of business units to find your niche, abundant training opportunities,client centered philosophy, employee interest groups promote diversity and comeraderie

    Cons

    Large company, takes time to make and execute decisions, compensation is lower than peers. Business units run independently, so the silo-mentality takes hold.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the talent you have and deal with under-performers decisively.
