    Pros

    The company as a whole offers excellent working conditions, excellent training, good benefits, the best integrity and exceeds all industry standards. For financial advisors, the income and opportunity, combined with support and corporate backing is beyond comparison (in my opinion). As a branch office administrator, the work/life balance is excellent, wages are very good, bonuses can be a huge plus if working with a successful and generous advisor. The ability to be your own person, work independently and achieve personal satisfaction is part of the business model at Edward Jones and can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    As is typical with any investment company, there are tons of rules and regulations to follow and be wary of. This is obviously an industry standard, but something to steer clear of if you aren't a "rule follower" type of person. There is no "doing things your own way" in this business; ever. Career advancement can be difficult, if not impossible with Edward Jones unless you know someone high up on the totem pole in the area you want to advance in. It's a big company with a small company feel to it and a lot of position advancement or location change comes from knowing the right person/persons.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis and importance needs to be given to the branch office administrators in regards to hearing and taking action about their concerns. Many of these women ( 98% are women in this capacity) would like to change their location or have a chance to split their hours with someone else (job share) but this is difficult, if not impossible. A lot of back stabbing goes on for the ones who don't mesh well with the advisor and Corporate nearly always sides with the advisor.
