Project Analyst IV - Mutual Fund Operations (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – November 19, 2018
The best part of working for Raymond James was the fact the location was in a good location not far from the interstate. The worst part of the job was the management that was in place. This job had the old boys club, where seniority matters more than ability. I was hired to do the job of a project manager, and six months into the job I still wasn't given a project to manage. They want very highly skilled workers but don't want to give them the roles and responsibilities that come with those skills. They are also not a competitive paying company when compared to many in the area.
location and hours
poor leadership, direction, and attitude of senority more important than ability

Fun office to work for. Stayed busy most of the time. I have been in the industry for 33 years. Management was fair to everyone Nothing hard about the job due to knowing what needed to be done for over 30 years.
Great people to work with
My FA's would get mad if I was sick or on vacation.They just did not like trying to do my job

Raymond James Financial Culture is one where they care about the employee's personal and professional health. There are education options available in a wide variety of competencies to everyone if you chose to take it. There are also many company sponsored functions to get out of the office and into the real world.
Raymond James provides good support for their branches and the associates. With their myriad services and partnerships they are able to support branches and employees to deliver excellent customer service.

At Raymond James there is a different type of management that goes on based on what department you work for. In my original position my supervisor was we’ll knowledgeable about all aspect of the jobs that he was over. The second department that i worked for. The supervisor was not very knowledgeable about the positions that she was over.

I worked for Raymond James and was the worse mistake I ever made. My experience was not what I expected and unfortunately it was a little to late by the time I realized it. I wish I would have never joint them.
New Accounts Associate Position is Tech Support Call Center
New Accounts Associate (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – October 12, 2018
The description for a New Accounts Associate is totally inaccurate. You will go through hours of financial terminology and processes training to come out and actually only be a Technical Support Call Center Associate. Due to a failed corporate wide system overhaul, you will literally sit on a phone for 8+ hours a day trying to figure out computer error codes with understandably upset Financial Advisors and associates. The actual technical support department for the company was purposely not put in the loop of the new system upload and are not authorized to help with the incoming problems incurred with it. The tech support associates can receive discipline for attempts to correct the errors received. High turn over rates, even with seasoned/seniors associates that are stressed out. Mandatory overtime and a shift that is micromanaged in 15 minute increments. You do not actually receive all of advertised vacation time. There is also a 90 day freeze on any promotion received -meaning you cannot leave New Accounts for 90 days if you receive a promotion, which in turn is causing other departments to not hire from New Accounts, because if they need an associate in two weeks, they cannot afford to wait 90 days for the needed employee.
Exec. Asst. to Senior Vice President, CAO (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL 33716 – October 10, 2018
I very much enjoyed my position at Raymond James; however my executive chose to move me to a hard-to-fill position that I was not interested in, in order to replace me with an assistant she could share with another department.
Overall, Raymond James is an excellent company and I would highly recommend it.
Lovely campus; many excellent benefits; upbeat atmosphere.
