Cost Basis Associate (Current Employee) – St Pete, FL – October 16, 2017
I receive thinly veiled threats implying that I should do whatever it takes to get the work done. They know there is enough work to call for hiring extra associates but they see that we have been working over time for well over a year so the message received is that we have been doing it so we can continue doing it. Our personal lives are not a concern to them.
Management is not interested in personal development. They are only interested in what you can do for them. Pay is not on par with industry standards. Favoritism is rampant. Inappropriate relationships between management and subordinates is basically condoned, so if that behavior is accepted then you know other inappropriate behavior is overlooked. These things are swept under the rug so that RJ's reputation remains spotless.
Speaking up, providing anything less than positive feedback around here gets you nothing but reprisals. Their associate insight surveys that are done bi-annually result in apathy from upper management. They like to appear as if they are acting on the results but they don't.

Both Operation Managers at the Downtown Chicago Location weren't the highest quality. Micromanagement to maintain their own jobs was just a small fraction of why the work environment was/is miserable for most Client Service Associates that work there. If upper management spent more time recognizing what Operations is doing they'd see major flaws in the personalities in who they have chosen to hire. I could not have been more miserable in that environment. Sad because the company is a great company.

Everyone is professional. You can always count on someone for help. I always felt safe while at work. Lots of actives to boost the moral when it was going down. Lots of educational fairs with goody bags. Birthdays are celebrated :) i love the culture, the mission of RJ.
Vice President (Former Employee) – St. Petersburg, FL – August 23, 2017
The firm is only concerned with their reputation and their company. They talk the game of creating a beneficial culture for all employees, but in reality, they are only concerned with protecting the firm and the Raymond James name in these volatile times.
Senior Interactive Designer (Current Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – August 13, 2017
One of the most noticeable changes I experienced in moving over to Raymond James is the team atmosphere. The work is very fast-paced, and attention to detail must be high. However, when you need the team, the team is there.
They are also adamant that senior developers work not only to train onboarding employees, but also help them grow and reach their full potential.
Team Atmosphere, continuous growth opportunities, great benefits, and room for advancement
