Edward Jones – Why Work For Us?


A More Personal Approach to Success

You know the financial services industry, but you may not know Edward Jones. We are a unique industry leader known for our more personal approach to business. From locating single-Financial Advisor offices in the communities where our clients live and work to our investment philosophy that focuses on quality and diversification, we believe that building long-term relationships with our nearly 7 million clients is the key to our success.

Each Financial Advisor autonomously runs a firm provided, community-based office while enjoying the resources, tools, technology and support only an industry leader can provide. They get to know clients on a personal, one-to-one basis, offering them the diversified products and services they need to help reach their goals. All Edward Jones Financial Advisors enjoy the power and freedom to choose their clients, from investors just starting out to those with well-established wealth and resources.

Each Edward Jones office also has a branch office administrator who provides critical support services for our clients and Financial Advisors. We hire and promote hundreds of financial services professionals and branch support specialists to work in our full-service headquarters.

You’ll find that wherever you work at Edward Jones (in a neighborhood office or from one of our headquarters locations), our blueprint for success is to provide you with the tools and resources you need to achieve your goals.

Highly motivated individuals from a variety of backgrounds can join Edward Jones as Financial Advisors., In this role, you will work independently from your own neighborhood office helping clients work toward their long-term financial goals.

Becoming an Edward Jones Financial Advisor has the potential to be a life-changing opportunity to experience all the freedom and rewards working for yourself brings along with all the support of an industry-leading organization. Our highly-decorated training programs are designed to support you whether you are new to the industry or looking to grow your practice.

It takes a special person to fully capitalize on this opportunity. Here are some attributes we find in successful Financial Advisors:

  • An ability to self-manage
  • Motivated by challenge/reward
  • Independent, yet comfortable working in a structured environment
  • Sociable/outgoing
  • Analytical - motivated to learn new things
  • Self-confident
  • A positive attitude about a career in financial services

  • Edward Jones operates two full-service U.S. headquarters facilities in St. Louis, Mo., and Tempe, Ariz. These two locations serve as the key hubs to support our expanding network of branch offices.

  • Our headquarters opportunities are segmented into divisions, each with its own set of responsibilities and activities. We strive every day to best serve our clients while providing our associates with the tools and resources they need to achieve more.

  • Here, you'll find that your work can make a real difference in people's lives. Every position ultimately supports our branch network of Financial Advisors, who provide the investments, services and advice our clients need to work toward their long-term financial goals.

Edward Jones Financial Advisors are known for building quality, one-to-one relationships with clients – and they're able to maintain those relationships with the help of the Branch Office Administrator When clients have questions, the Financial Advisor will often depend on the Branch Office Administrator to provide a timely response.

An effective marketing communications program is only as strong as the person who implements it on a daily basis. At the Financial Advisor’s direction, the Branch Office Administrator updates prospect and client data records, executes direct mail programs, assists with planning seminars and makes follow-up calls to set or confirm appointments. The Branch Office Administrator also helps the Financial Advisor to deepen existing client relationships by preparing a variety of reports for scheduled appointments and scheduling systematic contact activities.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time


    -For the amount of hours we work compared to your average Wall Street analyst in NY, our compensation is pretty good - though it would be right to increase given our increased responsibilities
    -Awesome awesome team culture. If there are office politics, I sure as heck don't know about them.. feels like a family to me.
    -Really truly, above any other place, feel like you are working to improve the lives of clients. The success of our clients ALWAYS comes first in any decision made.
    -It's a privately-held partnership... hard to explain until you see for yourself. Partnership offerings held every 3 years for employees.


    - Only 2 weeks vacation if working for less than 3 years. 3 weeks vacation from 3 years of employment until you've been working for 10 years. That NEEDS to change. It sucks.
    - High deductible health insurance (not a fan)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, for the love of goodness improve the vacation days. PLEASE.
