Varying work environments, with community oriented and artistic culture
Portfolio Account Administrator (Current Employee) – St. Petersburg, Fl – March 18, 2014
There is a great opportunity to increase your knowledge and for self development. Each department within the company has its own flavor and personality. Depending on the department my typical work day has varied. Due to the community oriented nature of the company the co-workers over all are very inclusive and friendly. There are many net working groups within the company that have been formed based on a varying assortment of common interests that further encourage interaction and encourage tolerance through exposure to diversity. Overall working for this company has many great benefits. I would say the hardest part of the job is advancement due to the fact that there is so much longevity when it comes to the average career in this company.
The company as a whole has a great culture.
Each department within the company as a whole has its own set of rules, there is no consistency in policy for many things.
Forms Designer (contractor and direct hire) (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – June 21, 2017
Excellent company, but not the forms department. Poor delegation for forms requests, antiquated software with no support or classes available. Presence of constant, negative, passive aggressive attitudes.
Corporation is superb, great people, benefits, work from home, supply laptops, volunteer opportunities, online learning, amazing cafeteria, events and art collection
Ancient outdated Software, Forms Department overall (no local management), mandatory overtime

Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – May 12, 2017
Unless you know the right people at this company there is no chance of growth and advancement. You can have four degrees, more education than your manager, excellent work ethic, utmost professionalism and be highly skilled and qualified it doesn't mattrr. It will not get you any recognition to move up in the company let alone compensation no matter how much you apply and give excellent interviews. They hire their buddy and pals to fill open positions. Plus they promote who they like. This company is very cliquish. They have and will continue to lose top talent with this mentality. They need a culture that fosters growth and avancement. They need to encourage and foster educational endeavors and not just pay for performance but pay for how much education you have or obtain. Not everyone is on the same level.
work from home sometimes
pay is below industry, do not have the same positions as St. Pete
Excellent training and opportunity in a non-stressful work environment
Reporting Analyst II (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – May 9, 2017
I work in one of RJ's three operations branches. The hours allow for a good work/life balance and the management is very focussed on helping me succeed both inside and outside of RJ. There's a lot of opportunity to be recognized and move up in the company.
Raymond James is a great company to work for. There is much room for advancement. The benefits are great! People are usually there till retirerment. There is no part-time jobs there it is full-time and Salary postions.
Compliance Advisor/Senior Compliance Advisor (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – April 8, 2017
My main reason for leaving RJ was that they did not pay as much as competitors and they are okay with that. I compared pay between friends that were in the same position as me and they were paid $10k to $20k more. However, the culture is great. Managers take pride in their work as well as yours and really try to set up the entire team for success.
I started taking specialized computer classes in the 5th grade, it was something that was up and coming and everyone knew that. It was required the next two years but I thought "Why not get a head start". When you got from typing with two fingers to typing 46 WPM, you were paying attention in class buddy. Raymond James helped me get a little money for the summer and helped me utilize my to the best of my ability
Administrative Office Specialist (Current Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – March 31, 2017
Great company, Horrible department management. I have had numerous problems with office politics. It does not matter how hard you work, or how well you do your job but simply who you know and are in affiliation with.
IT Intern (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – March 22, 2017
This company I was just an Intern for 9 months, but the 9 months I was there it was great. The people are friendly, the job was challenging, and the benefits were very good, if you were an actual employee and not an intern.
