Welcome to the Yellow Brick Road of Raymond James!
Mutual Funds Associate (Former Employee), Vancouver, BC, CanadaNovember 3, 2014
Pros: ideal location, comfortable eating area, competitive salary, cozy surroundings and genuine kindness
Cons: work stays at work…how unbelievably stable. once they seek you, they may keep you…forever!
Merge here! Life is a Journey not a Destination: wealth building at it’s finest. Typical day may fly by the seat of your pants. Management loves you and are not afraid to show it. May not look like love but having a hawk’s eye for nuances may help. Don’t fight it, just love them too! Plenty of offers to evolve whether you like it or not. Colleagues – more... are a mixed bag of goodies. So sweet or sour, you may get cavities. Hardest part is learning the info, software and processes. Slowly persist and you may be directed to where you would like to go. Watch out for the lightning quick sense of humour or you may miss it! Dorothy, you are not in Kansas anymore. When you are ready, take a seat, stay, turn up the music, and enjoy the ride...on a road where most folks may not have the opportunity to travel to! – less
