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

    Pros

    My paycheck was pretty good, but was probably one of the top reasons I was run out. They are now advertising for open positions at $12-$13 per hour (fast food wages) which is almost half of what I was earning.

    Cons

    Whether it was the Kuhlman/Gatny Show, or the rest of the building, everyone ran their mouths like they didn't know we worked in a call center. You could set your watch, every day at 5:30, because that's when those 2 females in the Customer Accounts department would scream in laughter for a solid 1-2 hours. It was impossible to service advisors, with million dollar accounts, with such unprofessional conduct.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your employees how to act professionally in an environment where people's life savings are being discussed all day. Follow your procedures on promotion opportunities, not when it's convenient, and keep your lip service to a minimum.
