Pros

The ability to be your own boss. You can make as much or as little money as you want it all depends on how much drive you have.

Cons

HIGH PRESSURE JOB. You are responsible for the retirment and income of hundreds of people. It you make bad decisions they are directly affected by it and you will be affect as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your direction has helped get Edward Jones through many storms that other brokerage firms have not been able to. Great job and keep up the ideals that Ted put in place.

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom that comes with the financial advisor position. You run your own office and have your own assistant. You do not have to put up any upfront money for your office they just want you to put in the time to build it up. There are more ways to be compensated for your hard work, not just commission. There are two great trips each year you can win for your successful sales, bonuses and a chance to become a partner of the firm down the road. Overall Edward Jones is a great company to work for

    Cons

    Technology is finally getting up to speed but it has taken awhile to get there.

    Pros

    Set your own hours and unlimited potential gains.

    Cons

    Unless you are a real shark and are trying to get people to buy something, no matter the cost, then you will not fit in. The training program makes you go door to door trying to sell investments to strangers. Just ask yourself one question, "If someone came to your door and tried to tell you to give them your life savings and invest it with them," you would say hell no. Welcome to the outdated business model of Edward Jones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the training program and core business model.
