    I have been working at Raymond James & Associates full-time

    Pros

    You have the ability to determine how you would like to manage your program as there are few to none actual standard operating proceedures. Access to senior executives is relatively easy. You are recognized for performance. I believe the company is in the midst of a changing culture which is a good thing.

    Cons

    Lack of proceedures also means everyone does a similar job differently so it can be confusing to the end users. Compensation is average at best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work from home is not consistent and should be.

    I have been working at Raymond James & Associates full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company has a lot of room to move up or laterally and a wide variety of extracurricular activities. HQ has an art department and an associate art show. Lots of company sponsorships related to sports and charitable activities. Good benefits, OK pay. Overall a nice place to work.

    Cons

    There have been recent changes in management which completely changed the atmosphere in my department. I suddenly had to cope with the ugly end of a lot of favoritism. If management doesn't like you, no matter how well you have done in the past or how long, they will say horrible things about you in your review and make sure you can't move to another department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that this is not junior high. It is not good for anyone, on any level, to be spiteful or play favorites. Be honest and do what is best for the company, not just your buddies.

    Pros

    Raymond James has a great culture and is a great place if you're looking for a steady job working with generally very nice people. They also tend to promote from within which is great if you're hoping to move up.

    Cons

    Raymond James tends to be slightly lower than the average salary for positions albeit makes up for it with plenty of advancement opportunities and a steady job environment.

    Pros

    Great benefits, regular pay increases annually

    Cons

    Limited advancement options in local branch offices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complex structure hinders operational staff by adding additional steps not needed with indicvidual on site management . The ability to work one on one with an on sight manager that is aware of all the influences positive and negative within a branch office can not be understated. Sales associates continue to be given more weight than operational staff eventhough operational staff do most of the day to day tasks that maintain client accounts and relationships.
