Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – January 15, 2019
Conservative environment and culture not for progressives. Great if typical Administrative work is your thing and you have been in the field long-term already. Basically you help the advisors make their money taking in whatever demands they place on you therefore progression isn't enforced or promoted because they depend on you. I found it is the type of environment that may deter you from this industry for good due to the very unappealing almost hostile atmosphere. Very very Small office, therefore generally quiet and not much interaction. Unprofessional management that may alter entire job outlook.
Benefits and pay aren't very good either nor competitive in the industry.
typical 8-5 hour job, location (near metro)
unprofessional management, poor benefits, dead end, hostile environment, low pay
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
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 13, 2018
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
Trading Associate (Former Employee) – St. Petersburg, FL – November 8, 2018
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.
Branch Services Specialist (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – November 5, 2018
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.
