Accounting Associate II (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLOctober 16, 2013
Pros: within 1 month of me being hired i returned from lunch to a $100 bonus
Cons: parking
My days consisted of balancing brokerage accounts. I enjoyed this because I received a sense of a job well done at the end of each day. I was allowed to hone my skills of problem solving and effective communication while completing my daily job duties. The management team was amazing. I would work for either of them at the drop of a hat. My co-workers – more... were pleasant to be around and had a passion much like my own for the job we performed. The hardest part of this job was making time to attend the Raymond James University courses that were offered to employees to encourage continued learning. The most enjoyable part of this job was being appreciated and recognized by management. – less

Administrative Assistant, Receptionist (Former Employee), New Bern, NCSeptember 24, 2013
While performing administrative and receptionist duties, I also learned about financial advising practices, as well as compliance practices in this particular field. I was in charge of organizing and managing client data files and well as corresponding with clients, organizing events and acting as a book keeper for my employers. Unfortunately, this – more... was a part time job and my employers were unable to provide as many hours as I needed to maintain a quality of life, also I had to relocate to Pennsylvania from North Carolina for personal reasons, so I was unable to continue at this business. – less

Contractor (Current Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: good campus location in tampa bay area.
Cons: high work-load, lay-offs, some departments do not provide growth.
Departments put emphasis on team-building and camaraderie. Contractor positions are less integrated with rest of firm due to temporary nature, however full-time employees are encouraged to continue their licenses and certifications in various work-relevant areas on the company's dime (so long as employee can show that the certification in some shape – more... contributes to the company). Beautiful prized art-work collection located in all four towers of company lend to a more cheerful and interesting work atmosphere. Art collection located in offices is largest private collection in the United States and includes Warhol, and other greats. – less

Wonderful career move with a great company
Registered Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLAugust 6, 2013
Pros: the best company i ever worked for.
Cons: the opportunity for further advancement.
I was hired as a receptionist when they opened the local branch. Within 1 year I was a full time employee with my series 7 license. Within 5 years, I had made it to Branch Managers assistant and would back up the Ops Mgr, organize and follow through with Seminars and marketing events, train new Financial Advisors and Associates, as well as process new – more... accounts and trades. I was the IT manager of the branch which I enjoyed the most in this position, along with the people. My biggest obstacle, or challenge with the company was the opportunity for advancement once the market began it's decline. – less
