    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Many associates are kind and supportive

    Cons

    A horrid place to work. Witnessed racism from "Police Lives Matter" being displayed by security to discrimination based upon race. The foreign nationals that run the place openly display favoritism towards their fellow country men/women. HR does nothing when reported. The technology is old and poorly implemented. Whatever vaunted culture may have existed is long gone couldn't wait to get out of there.
