Difficult Environment to Work In
International Clearance Team Lead (Former Employee), Southfield, MIAugust 3, 2014
Pros: very steady, profitable company
Cons: lack of opportunity to advance without relocating
The company has 3 back office sites located in St. Petersburg, FL, Southfield, MI and Memphis, TN. The organizational structure is set up so managers have direct reports in different sites. This causes a lot of issues within departments. There is a lot of miscommunication and differences in philosophy.

Compliance Analyst (Current Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLJuly 22, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, nice work environment
Cons: sexism, favoritism, cronyism, low pay
It was a nice place to work at first, but now the culture is changing. If you are not a male, a part of a click, or someone's crony, your opportunities for advancement are very slim. In addition, the pay is very low for other firms in this industry and this size.

Branch Operations Specialist II (Former Employee), Beachwood, OHMay 29, 2014
Pros: the benefits!! very friendly and wonderful co-workers!
Cons: good work was never appreciated. bad work was always noted.
I truly enjoyed working at Raymond James & Associates, corporate side.
The day started quickly (8:30am) and stayed fairly busy until after the end of the day (5pm).

I learned a great deal about the stock market, and how fragile it truly is. I learned that most people really don't understand why stocks go up and why some companies fail. I also learned – more... how to make a fillable tax form for those running for political office. Very interesting!!

Management, while no one is perfect, was pretty good. Unfortunately, if you're not one of the producing Financial Advisors, you are replaceable, and don't forget it.

The support staff was amazingly helpful and most were very friendly. We had the opportunity to go to lunch at the same time, which gave us time to be ourselves and become friendly with one another.

The hardest part of the job was keeping the Financial Advisors happy while still keeping in compliance. Everyone is different, and you really need to understand how they all work, individually, and with their teams. If your personality didn't match what they liked, they were not friendly.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the clients and working with them as well as the other support staff members. It certainly kept you on your toes! I enjoyed interacting with the clients tremendously. – less
