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

    Pros

    I loved working here and would still be, but we relocated due to my spouse's promotion. They have great benefits. They will train you for your current position and they will pay for your education if you wish to advance within the company.

    Cons

    I was there for two years and I would say that you don't really see a variety of people working here. Actually, you don't really interact at all with people of other departments. Your free to after work though, they have some clubs you can join.

    Advice to Management

    None, just keep doing what you're doing. It's really a great place to work.

    Pros

    The longer you are employed here the better the benefits. They are Tiered on tenure. Max is 12 Weeks (Paid 100%)

    Cons

    If you are new to the firm, you have very little flexibility. .. but that makes sense from a business perspective

    Advice to Management

    Allow more flexibility to tenured employees

    I worked at Raymond James Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The training resources are fantastic, and the ability to share and view other's processes was invaluable. I always felt that I really mattered, and that the clients really mattered. They've made the concept of turning clients into advocates work exceptionally well, and they seem to do the same with employees. I'm definitely an advocate, even though I've moved on to another field.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of a down-side to Raymond James.
