      I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Culture TRUE work/life balance Community involvement First name basis up to the CEO A very foolish-risk-averse, conservatively run company. They don't chase return. Pay is better than it was historically Great name recognition Very low employee turnover Great security staff Hiring, not downsizing Plenty of staff promotions

      Cons

      Hiring spree may have diluted the culture So many hires from large corporate entities has suddenly diluted the company culture. Management 4 levels above you may be dictating the minutiae of your job. Telling you how to dot your i's and cross your t's. PTO is below what is now the industry norm There's no formal avenue to voice a complaint or concern The structure has become top-heavy and more vertical

      Advice to Management

      Guard against becoming another Citi, BoA, Chase or HSBC. The cost outweighs the benefits. Protocol consciousness has infected the company. Creativity and empowerment may be stifled as a result. Add 40 more hours vacation. 😀
