Hardest work I've ever done

Financial Advisor (Current Employee)
Des Moines, IA

I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 5 years

ProsYou'll ultimately be given your own office to run with significant autonomy. A chance to build and run your own business with minimum interference. Technical support when called upon is generally positive, prompt, and quite helpful.

ConsCompensation is not as glowing as advertised. Significant dropout rate of new advisors in first 3 years. Lots of pressure for you to help recruit new advisors. Training geared towards selling rather than building strong portfolios for clients

Advice to Senior ManagementTendency to describe those who leave as slackers who just didn't work hard enough...as in, yes their is turnover but we're losing those who really weren't willing to do the work. Don't significantly raise goals in the midst of a significant economic downturn.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Thick Skin is Required

Financial Advisor (Former Employee)
Des Moines, IA

I worked at Edward Jones

ProsTheir is potential for a lot of upside in your compensation.
Can be very fulfilling experience.

ConsThe first few years will be the most difficult possible and you will feel like quiting 5/7 days a week.
This job require at least 80 hours of work a week; if you have a lot of family commitments this job may not be for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't Go Public and Don't Sell Out!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
