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 (more than 5 years)


    One of the best "corporate" cultures in America. The highest rated in advisor satisfaction among major brokerage firms for 20 straight years.

    A partnership owned by the employees with ample opportunities to earn partnership regardless of your position with the firm.

    Exponential earnings potential limited only by your ability to create and maintain clientele.

    A "one FA per office" concept that essentially makes you pseudo-independent and eventually your own boss (as long as you're meeting/exceeding expectations and/or profitable).

    A dedicated business office administrator (BOA) who handles the operations of your branch.

    Some of the best training in the industry. Many firms attempt to hire new FAs away from EDJ after their first few years.


    Hard Job. Convincing people you're the right person to manage and invest their money is not easy. Even if you're good, creating new clients is still a daunting task. This is a job best suited for extreme "people-persons" or type-A work-a-holics. 8 out of 10 hired don't make it.

    It can take a while to really make money. Those fortunate enough to receive some form of "asset-sharing" can start quicker. However, it all comes down to effort.

    Stressful job depending on your personality. You are responsible for other people's money, which isn't a task to be taken lightly. Down markets aren't fun. You always have to continue growing the business.
