Time to start kissing up to your boss in the futile effort of being recognized as a higher contributor than your peers who are all chummy with him/her. Remember, being a buddy to the boss is ALWAYS more important than hard work, dedication, and... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Raymond James Financial Inc.
In the past 8 months under Amie Seamore's leadership, we have lost both our managers and 3 associates. DO NOT come to this department unless you hate your life. HR has to see there is a problem here!
Couldn't wait to leave RJ after watching the slow, painful descent of morale and the rise in unethical treatment of employees. My fear was the same as everyone else's - hard to leave a job, even one that you hate, when you've got bills to pay, and... read more
Sharpen your pencils.
The business side of RJ is still a great place to work, but IT is suffering with huge moral issues that aren't being addressed. A number of long term associates have left recently and management is replacing them with contractors. Even the... read more
Unbelievable how this firm continues to be male centric across the board. They love young women that are cute, young and wear short skirts - even in HR. It s---s to be a women in this firm,... what happened to the survey they did about it? we like to... read more
Someone recently posted a thread here, but I don't see it now. ???
The Marketing Department has awful leadership and cannot identify true talent. They promote a-- kissers that have zero management experience and even fewer people skills. Meanwhile, truly hard working employees are overlooked and viewed as... read more
Hallmark of a company that underpays. I've never worked for another firm that essentially says, "But look how much we pay for your insurance!!" It's almost tacky. So, if anyone from management is still monitoring this page, take a hint. Don't justify... read more
I didn't see this on RJ-net. Probably not worse than what was told to the press. No way!!! Paul and Bella are straight shooters
Or do they dare to have another one?
Are the board of directors blind, do they not see that HR does not do anything but care about getting those cheap oversea laborers in, paying for their visas. What about the American worker. Oh yeah, we let bosses sεxually harass them and make them... read more
One gone already and one heading for the door. How the hell are they keeping up with the turnover?
Getting the message; we don't care about you, your family or your insight survey comments. We just care about squeezing every penny out for our NY bonuses.
Surprise, they are under Todd Ferguson, not really. Todd Ferguson's team scored the worse department in the IT insight survey, so expect more than surprised.
So much for that d--k Vin's word. NY piece of crap.
Toxic leadership often causes employee dissatisfaction, low productivity, interdepartmental conflict, stagnant innovation, and a high turnover rate. Unfortunately, in many organizations toxic leaders are a painful but undeniable reality. With their... read more
How is the hand pick by Andy Zolper going?
Getting more money and leaving the D**Kweed Todd Ferguson behind. How can it be wrong?
Andy Zolper is a douche leader and wholly deserves the lowest score from the insight survey in IT.
Cost cutting started. Wondering what's next and when...
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".
