Very productive and supportive work environment. Great learning experience!
Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee), Memphis, TNFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: great benefits, excellent employees
Raymond James|Morgan Keegan was the best employer I have ever worked for since I began working when I was 16. The management was extremely knowledgable of their business and willing to teach others. My co-workers were my friends and co-workers. The hardest part of the job was making deadlines for particular projects, but at the same time that was the thrill of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was going to work everyday.

The Day in the Cage of Brokerage Firm
Assistant Operations Manager (Current Employee), Buckhead, GAJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: never a boring day. always on the go.
Cons: hard to take a break.
I work in the cage of a brokerage firm office. The cage is the center of the office. This is where I had to place trade orders, open new accounts, go thru the daily mail, made the daily deposit to the bank, make sure that all the trades were logged in the trade. I also help the Branch Operations Manager with anything that she need done.

Manager (Former Employee), St Petersburg Beach, FLJanuary 16, 2015
Pros: great people to work with
Cons: managment would at times give mixed-messages
I learned a lot at Raymond James, branching out from my previous management responsibilities (ex. balancing budget, coordinating assignments with outside department, project managers and HR). The people were very friendly and career driven.

DO NOT WORK IN HR AT RJ
Campus Recruiting (Former Employee), St PeteJanuary 15, 2015
The RJ HR department is a disaster so do not waste your time by applying. The turnover is staggering and employee satisfaction is the worst. Everyone in Tampa/St Pete that works in the HR space knows not to work for RJ. Again, DO NOT waste your time.

Daily life at Edward Jones

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Return phone calls
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM - Vendor Meetings/Lunch
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM - Meeting with client
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM - Meeting with client

Taking care of the clients was best part of job. The lack of support was the worst. Each branch at Edward Jones was setup as an Island to run on your own. For the first 3 years as an adviser life can be hard with economics and time with family.
