    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great company to work for. Even though each office is generally set up for two employees (the BOA and the FA), I felt a lot of camaraderie with other offices and never felt 'alone.' I only left because the FA in my office went independent and I joined him.

    Cons

    The experience is only as good as your relationship with the FA. If s/he likes you and all is good you are all set but it can be a difficult environment if you don't mesh with the other person.

    I have been working at Edward Jones (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to expand own business climate. Business culture. The ability to become your own boss. Hours you put in determine your level of success. Willing to work would reflect positively.

    Cons

    Lack of strong leadership, local management. Edward Jones uses an old school technique to gather your own prospects face to face. Expectation is high to go door to door.

    Advice to Management

    Have a longer learning process that actually pairs a new advisor with a leader or trainer for a much longer period rater than just a weekly 1 hour meeting.

    Senior leadership knows how to steer the ship. Good pay and benefits. No layoffs.

    Cons

    It depends on the area you are working.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    EJ has onsite cafeteria. This helps since a 1 hour lunch break is unheard of and/or frowned upon. Descent salary.

    Cons

    Culture, culture, culture. If you are an independent thinker or prefer autonomy, look elsewhere. Watch your back!

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time

    Pros

    Great training, bonuses, office environment

    Cons

    Branch Office Admins are expected to be a team with the Financial Advisors but do not get the same incentives as Financial advisors

    Advice to Management

    Give incentives to all positions instead of just the advisors

    Pros

    Very stress-free work environment with a lot of autonomy given to associates. Team is young and energetic.

    Cons

    Your product of work is important, but the only thing that truly matters to advance to an analyst is passing the CFA.
