    I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company and benefits. They truly care about their employees.

    Cons

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that lasted about 15-20 minutes. I was well prepared and qualified, thought he interview went well, and sent a follow up email that was well received. Two weeks later I got a stock email saying they were moving forward with other candidates. It was frustrating to have multiple direct contacts with the interviewer and then a very delayed, generic rejection from an unmonitored email account.
