Topics regarding layoffs at Raymond James Financial Inc.
Time to leave RJ. It is really as bad as this site says. Took a chance on greener grass and it didn't work out. Thankfully found a new position. Will never make that mistake again.
I thought each manager was supposed to discuss the results of the Insight Survey with his team? Didn't happen here. Has anybody had an open discussion about the results?
Mass exodus. Changes. Everyone pissed off. What has happened?
RJ IT is just a shitty place to work. If you have been there for a few years and did not leave, you are a moron. Either you are too bad at your job to get hired anywhere else, or you are one one of the favorites making the place worse.
Managers are now allowed to tell bonuses and raises. Your thoughts?
Is this company really as bad as everyone makes it out to be on here? This company has won many awards for best place to work I find it hard to believe that it's really that bad.
Wanted some advice as to whether I should take a contracting position at RJ for a 6 month contract in IT with the possibility to extend or roll to perm. I've read a lot of bad things on this site and I am now uncertain whether I should accept or not... read more
I'm living the dream. I'm trying to move on to browner pastures. You don't need greener pastures to step up from RJ's culture or Andy Zolper's leadership.
Unhappiest place to work under Bella: IT-Security. Top Three unhappiest things in IT: Pay, Workload and Leadership. Bella and Vin's 2nd Survey. Nothing got better. Bad Pay feelings got worse. Looks like RJ is not making the top 100 places to work in... read more
I want OUT! There are so many secrets and BS!
Have you decided how to do your survey yet? Dare to tell the truth?
The reality is that if you are not in a position that directly brings up the bottom line or you are not in the skull and bones exclusive club, you are at risk for being let go. This is how the system works and it is the cost of working not only at... read more
The first sign that changes were coming to the company was the massive changes in executive management. The younger generation and the workplace in general does not have the values it did at one time. They will take what they can get at the expense... read more
They got slapped in the press and by the associates badly, so they are baby stepping the layoffs still. Slow and silent hoping nobody notices. Laid off a few people in November 2014 too. Just before the end of the fiscal year. Slow and silent... read more
Reminds me of that old Apple commercial called "1984".
Yes, it has been almost 2 years since IT people were walked out the door.. RJ took away our old faded ID badges that we given to us when we first started, walked us to our cars and then .... we left to find other jobs and have found the grass is much... read more
The official end of RJ in the top 100 places to work in Florida and top IT places to work in Florida.
I'm soooooo happy I'm not under her anymore. I really cannot express the happiness in words. A tumor in RJ and that is putting cancer down too.
We all find it hysterical, that after years of lying and denials that there was nothing going on between Tim Bradford & Samantha Davidson, and we walk into work today and find out they got married to each other over the holiday. For years, they would... read more
Is there a good source of average salary information for Raymond James? I've been offered a position but the compensation looks extremely low. I appreciate your response in advance.
What are your thoughts
All the blood sweat and tears warrants a measly $200 "special recognition award" as a thank you for the record profits. That won't make a dent in my attorney fees for the divorce my wife wants because I've been f-ing working too many hours for the... read more
What are your best memories of the old RJ culture? If you could turn back time, what would you want back? Having a sentimental moment.
Anyone know what happened????
this is the most awful company I have ever seen! I haven't even read about companies this seriously screwed up! Sad, but already I am ready and starting to leave. There is no compassion or empathy to the employees from the managers. None. Constantly... read more
You would think they would wait until bonus time ends, but they really must hate it there.
It looks like only IT layoffs are reported here? I am not sure if any other department lays people off. Or, maybe IT folks are just more vocal and comfortable posting info here? Thoughts?
They rank us so let's rank them! Open to past and present employees. Scale 1 to 10 with 10 being great and 1 being awful. Keep it at the I feel or in my option and the 1st amendment is fully in effect.
It seems higher than normal these last few months. Makes you think that is how they balance the budget now a days at RJ. "Tracking" associates, re-orging associates out, just hiring contractors,.... Now hiring executive management personnel, they... read more
Post your level, location and 2013 bonus info below. Here is mine: Equity Research Associate, Houston, TX: $11K bonus (and $3K profit sharing)
Are they both blind and stupid? Sorry Tom and Paul, that ship set sail back in April 2013. The family and friendly culture has been dead over a year now, but thanks for noticing it is not the same culture it use to be.
You are right too that 2 managers have departed, but more than a few associates have left too. One security department only has one associate left in it. One department has fired 2 people in 3 months. A Contractor has actually giving notice too... read more
Can't wait to see how much they value IT with the stock at an all time high and, according to Vin, the FAs totally happy with the direction of technology. Can't see nothing, but positives now. We'll see if management backs up their words on how... read more
This guy needs to leave or be fired. I have seen him 3 or 4 times over the last couple of weeks and it is like he is on something. We know you are a suck up and weak at your job but leave the recreational substances for after hours. It makes everyone... read more
