Pros

You are your own boss.
No propriatary products sold.
Vacation reward trips
Profit sharing
Opportunity to become a limited partern in the firm
Good reputation in the industry
Providing financial advice is the only business Edward Jones is in.

Cons

Poor health benefits
doorknocking
You work with one other person (branch administrator) in a branch office so you spend a lot of time alone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

NEVER go public. Ted Jones wanted us to own the company for the benefit of our clients.

    Pros

    The license preparation program was excellent and designed to yield passing scores and high scores, which it does.
    The training overall was very good and the facility in St. Louis was excellent.

    Cons

    Working from home without close support did not work for me being brand new to the business.
    Initial field work was impossible to do without being able to discuss financial information.
    There was weird vibe among veterans - almost cult-like, which made me slightly uncomfortable.

    Pros

    Edward Jones has a great reputation.

    Cons

    As a "new new" the prospecting methods they teach will not result in enough new accounts and gross commissions for you to keep your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with new hires that they will need to bring in business from friends, family and their own personal network in order to be successful.
