I don't need a RJ Insight survey to tell me Andy Zolper's leadership is awful

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.

The RJ Insight survey is back in town.

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 2015.

Have you decided how to do your survey yet? Dare to tell the truth?

Do you say to yourself "I won't get let go. They need me." Think again.

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 RJ, but in corporate America. The current executive ... read more

I was one of the employees let go in April a few years ago. The writing was on the wall and all the signs were there.

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 of others. Sadly, they are in the same company ... read more

Management laid 7 people off in training a few days ago.

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. Curious how the IT HR lead person quit recently. ... read more

It has been almost 2 years ago in April since the Big IT purge...

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 greener on the other side, our lives are better, ... read more

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 last 2 1/2 years. Gee whiz RJ. Thanks for nothing ... read more

New 2015 IT Goal from the IT all meeting is 90%> Retention of Staff

I wonder why they need a retention goal now and a public one at that? I believe Best Practice is 10% turnover too.

Is any department (except IT) laying people off?

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?

Better yet, official RJ manager ranking site

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.

Notice in these last few months there has been a few people let go or laidoff?

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 have that down pat!

Tom and Paul are saying they don't want to destroy the great culture at RJ at the all hands meetings???

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.

What is wrong in security you ask Anonymous36559? Management! Plan and simple. The money has always stunk at RJ.

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. Recommend a steer clear attitude, but you can almost ... read more

Almost bonus time again!

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 important and valuable IT is or will we get subpar ... 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 else's job harder.

The layoffs delayed from last April are now coming. HR is getting the packages ready now. Welcome to Paul's new business plan. Expect it from next week to 30 days out. Most likely a week or two out.
