I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time (More than 8 years)
Great company and benefits. They truly care about their employees.
Many advisers are still stuck in the 70s mindset. You can have just as many licenses, education, and years of experience as them, but many consider and view you as a "secretary." You eventually get stuck in advancement opportunities at branch, unless you want to take leap to adviser position.
Compensation is not up to par with competitors.
Advice to Management
A lot of success can be completed if advisers began using their resources (staff) in a more efficient manner. Too often time/talent is wasted and not utilized to the extent it could/should be.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Tampa, FL).
6 round superday interview in Tampa. This was following a thirty minute skype interview. Questions were mostly basic -- accounting, a brain teaser, a stock pitch, etc. Main one that you should be able to nail is 'why raymond james'?
