I worked at Raymond James Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good reformance on their portfolios, Good technology that enabled users to see and find data, Good research including going sell side in real estate.

Cons

Compensation plan changed 3 in 3 years. Principal mangement low balled pay continuosly and had 17 compliance issues until they finally had him step back out of managment but it took them too long and too weak a change. The new principal was all company man and pay was not a lot better - still half on what I earned at other places. The company man ployed a course to steal clients and had "just cause". I had just come from a place with Zero (0) tolerance on compliance issues and management was anything but weak

Advice to Management

Ship up or ship out management at the branch regional level.

    I worked at Raymond James Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very supportive of financial advisors. Open platform with client focus allows advisors to structure their practices their way.

    Cons

    Very good place work. The only con is the amount of turnover in the sales assistants, but this is somewhat the nature of the business. Also, the independent nature of the company sometimes got in the way of establishing good processes for business. Occasionally felt as if one were recreating the wheel in doing some types of business, even if the business was somewhat common.

    Advice to Management

    None.
