    I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time

    Pros

    The culture is really good. I work with a great group of people and I feel as if I can make suggestions or criticism freely. The St. Pete campus is nice.

    Cons

    The benefits are definitely lackluster, and that is a generous adjective. The PTO is not competitive, the healthcare option, while in line with what other companies are moving to, is not financially feasible for many families, and the 401k match is a joke, especially for the industry. The company's benefits package does not allow for employees to customize what they want/need. Although the maternity/paternity leave is generous, someone who does not have the need will never benefit. Also, many companies, RJ included, look for people with degrees, yet there are no benefits available for student loan repayment. Lastly, compensation is a touchy topic, especially in my field. It would seem that new people coming into the company make more than those who have been here for a while. The best way to get what you are worth is to change positions.

    Reputable company. Truly does care about the client first. High morals.

    Cons

    I happen to work for an advisor that I respect and respects me. If I didn’t have that it would be so different. So find someone you trust and can work to build together.

    Advice to Management

    I love working here.
