    I have been working at Raymond James Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I would die and go to he double hockey sticks than stick with this place. I am dying to leave this place. If you are the kind of person who doesn't want to do barely anything and kiss alot of butt then this job is for you. They will welcome you with open arms.

    Cons

    Every team is out to get everyone. Nobody cooperates. Every team spends massive amounts of money on junk and no accountability

    Advice to Management

    1. Paranoia is at the highest level in any place I have ever worked in.
    2. Nobody trusts each other including teams and each other team mates.
    3. No teamwork, everyone out to get theirs.
    4. Nobody communicates. Double work is created.
