    I worked at Raymond James Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They care about how you perform and update you on your performance every week

    Cons

    The supervisors in Southfield are extreme micromanagers and they use fear to make you perform well. It's very stressful for new hires as they're expected to become close to perfect within the first month.
    (Either you perform well in that short time or you risk losing your job)

    Their trainers are weak leaders whose insecurities get the better of them. They gossip about other employees in the office to the new hires.

    They discriminate

    Advice to Management

    Stop using fear to drive performance. It's never effective. New hires tend to feel out of place in the beginning anyway.
    Don't micromanage, especially to the extent of analyzing each and every question the new associate asked (and the number of times the question was asked).
    Micromanaging & instilling fear creates a very unhealthy environment and that certainly does not make anybody perform well or become confident in the job.

    Establish an effective on boarding program rather than simply handing over a manual to the new hires.

    Hire strong leaders to train new associates rather than the current ones who involve them in office gossip or openly express their biases towards people.
