    I have been working at Edward Jones

    Pros

    Very strong culture and ethics. The firm protects its associates and I have never been worried about my position being eliminated even through the financial crisis. Being privately held allows the firm to have a clear long term vision.

    Cons

    Compensation is very low compared to similar positions in the industry. Moving up in the ranks within the firm further decreases your earning power especially if you move up quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more freedom for direct leadership to compensate individuals fairly who perform at a high level. Too many strong associates are leaving to go to other firms that are willing to pay.
