Raymond James Downtown Vancouver BC
Administrative (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC21 August 2016
Staff is okay. Management is okay. Work is repetitive with lots of phone calls, and paperwork.

Lots of cubicles that are close together with lots of sounds that some people may or may not like.

People treat people nicely even though they make mistakes, they keep their voices polite and sympathetic.

They always make sure the people stay no matter what.

assist team (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 October 2016
Good work hours, as per industry.

Don't trust anyone/everyone.

Poor leadership, promises are not delivered.

Co-workers are caring and supportive of each other.

No clear direction or goals established by immediate supervisor.

Direct report doesn't micro-manage.
Pros
Free lunches, doing puzzles during work hours, personal days off

No clear goal setting/feedback, culture (mgmt) seems secretive

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC7 April 2016
RJL runs lean as you would expect of a financial inst. and this is apparent in some areas. The location is downtown Vancouver an easy commute. There is a lot of people who have been for there for their entire career. The management team is good and strong and on top of business. Conservative and very old school in most departments.
Pros
Accountable people
Cons
Old school, conservative work environment

Registered Representative (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON20 April 2016
A typical day at work involves a variety of activities. Responding to client needs, offering investment advice, monitoring client accounts for asset allocation and cash balance and Financial planning activities.
I have learned that at the end of the day a successful firm and advisor is about client first . The securities industry requires attention to detail and strong education to keep current.
Management at Raymond James has a healthy balance of conservative and progressive enhancement of it services to both clients and advisors.
The company attracts professional and generally established individuals. Co-workers get along and sense of respect is prevalent.
Hardest part of the job is not having enough time to use all the resources and information available. Most enjoyable part of the job is getting results for the client.

ASSOCIATE FINANCIAL ADVISOR/FINANCIAL ADVISOR (Current Employee) –  Toronto1 February 2015
I found they kept changing the grind, making it harder to hit commission targets. It also had a research department that was more often wrong on their projections than they were correct.
