    I worked at Raymond James Financial as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Worked with very helpful and friendly people. Office had a casual atmosphere, yet still focused and work oriented. Flexible in scheduling for an intern, and everyone seemed to have a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Did a lot of administrative tasks, as an intern usually does, but wanted to be more involved.

    Pros

    Some of the mgrs let you work from home & some of them will let you flex your hrs to help avoid traffic.

    Cons

    Low pay; poor mgment (upper mgmemt has no clue what the rank & file are dealing with & don't care); too many long-term employees doing nothing because there seems to be no consequences; performance reviews are a joke - they reward their friends not the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the associates and care about them, after all they're the ones filling your coffers.

    Great Financial Company

    I have been working at Raymond James Financial

    Pros

    They have a great support system for their financial advisors. They give them tons of freedom and the tools to more affectively do their jobs. They don't pressure sells of any specific product.

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of any. To get manage your own branch you need at least 30 million in assets under management though

    Pros

    The name Raymond James still holds some respect in the Financial Industry. They will pay for you to continue to get your licenses.

    Cons

    The Culture has changed. I can accept low pay if the corporate culture is a positive one but at Raymond James the pay is well below the industry average and the culture and moral are just horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on cultivating strong leaders not micro-managers. Focus more on creating a positive corporate culture. Upper management needs to look at restructuring the pay scale if they want to keep the good employees.

    Pros

    Good life work balance. Great culture and employees.

    Cons

    Virtually no training. Manger runs team from his desk behind closed door, through Office Manager and email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To my immediate manager. Have more team meetings and huddles. Provide information on big picture. Not just the microscopic details.

    I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of the people that work there are pretty good at their jobs, they were truly apologetic about the round of layoffs, you probably will not find a better firm for work life balance

    Cons

    Super conservative, Some senior people have been there forever and are not open to change. Management has also promoted people based on tenure instead of merit which leads to conflict with newer associates, nepotism is also evident

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake things up, it is a bit boring
