    I worked at Raymond James as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Ideal location, eating area, competitive pay and genuine kindness. Office culture is eccentric.

    Merge here! Life is a Journey not a Destination.
    Typical day flies by the seat of your pants. Management loves you and is not afraid to show it. Keep an eye out for the nuances as it may not seem like it. Be sure to reciprocate! Plenty of opportunities and offers to advance whether you like it or not. Co-workers are a mixed bag of goodies. So sweet, they will give you cavities. Hardest part is learning the info, software and processes. Keep at it and you will come out...on top. Watch out for the lightning quick sense of humour or you will miss it! Dorothy, you are not in Kansas anymore. Take a seat, stay and enjoy the ride to this road less traveled!

    Cons

    If they like you, they will keep you...forever! More training or job aids regarding processes and software learning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an open mind. Not everything is what it seems.
