    "Just another wire house"

    Current Employee - Financial Advisor
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Tended to stay out of the news in terms of litigation relative to larger wire houses during financial crisis

    Prospects with $1.5M or more can be flown to Tampa Headquarters for VIP trip on company's dime.

    Cons

    At the end of the day, RJA is just another wire house focused on selling expensive products to unwary consumers

    Brand recognition is virtually zero outside of Southeast

    The management came from a background where acquiring clients was more important then acquiring the right clients. (The "anything that will fog a mirror" approach to client acquisition)

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    People are friendly on the surface and generally very polite. Management is very effective at convincing employees that this is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Low pay. Poor benefits. No meaningful contribution to retirement. Employees are expected to work long hours for no reward. Scheduled vacation can be denied at the last minute. Many members of IT management have no technical training. Workers suffer as a result of poor management decisions. Employees are broken down instead of being lifted up. Moral is getting lower.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your home office employees better. If you want the best, pay for the best. Offer some retirement benefits.
