    Cons

    Work from home is acceptable in some areas and taboo in others. There should be a set policy in place. I’ve personally never had issues working from home, but have heard others complain depending on which manager you report to. Unfortunately, older managers tend to stick with “in-office” work only. Seems pretty redundant for a professional organization such as Raymond James is. Trust is key.

    No other cons

    Advice to Management

    Raymond James is definitely a leader in not only financial services but the way it treats its employees. The open door policy and willingness to share experiences and mentorships is incredible. I couldn’t be happier. Only improvement to make would be the work from home opportunity across the board.
