I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than a year)
GREAT training and support staff. Good benefits. Obvious unlimited earnings potential. Loved the culture, very family friendly. All the "higher ups" were FA's and know what its like to work there, and what it takes to succeed. AND they are all very willing to help you succeed within the Edward Jones model.
Grueling work (to be expected with the earnings potential). The first few years feel like door to door financial sales.
Advice to Management
Great a better atmosphere for college grads. The FACD program is great, but most of my class are gone. There needs to be a succession plan or support structure in place to allow an even playing field. I don't know anyone who left that hasn't found a higher paying job in the same field. Wealth Management groups, financial advisors for banks, financial representatives for equally sized firms. We are young, eager, and talented. We have the drive to get what we want, and we are smart enough to take good opportunities to get it. Yes EJ is a great opportunity, and I learned a lot from being with them, but I was not going to knock door to door to build a business when I saw my friends getting picked off for better jobs (with equal earnings potential).
