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.

Pros: great people to work with

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.

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.
