You can not really write a review about Raymond James unless you work at the Home Office in St. Petersburg, Flordia. Each office is independent and everything can be different in each office. I was fortunate to have several perks.

Support Specialist I (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FL – January 24, 2013
I was given the opportunity to learn about the financial industry which helped me in my personal life as well. The company did a lot for its employees. Raymond James gives its people lots of opportunities for advancement.
At RJ it is not what you know it is who you know. Home office associates are greatly undervalued unless you are a manager. Managers are the only people who count, the rest of us were very replaceable. They played favorites and there is no advancement for anyone who is not an insider. You are expected to know everything and train others, including your – more... boss, and never ask for help. They use metrics and time everything, micro managed to the hilt. Mid level management is a joke, glad I'm gone. – less
