I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Salary potential. Small, quiet office. Simple and clean, professional work environment. Phenomenal training and resources instantly available at all times.

Cons

Hidden costs. HARD work and hours for the first few years. Variable income. Poor benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be as up front as possible regarding what the experience is like and what the expectations are down the road. It IS all about numbers--not the clients--for the first few years. Show the balance sheet for an office. Explain what is provided and what is not.

    I have been working at Edward Jones (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Key Words: Stable, Love the People, Does the Right Thing for Our Clients, Treated Fairly, Good Benefits

    During the market crash in 2008 / 2009, management took the right steps to drive down non-compensation costs, which allowed everyone to keep their job and maintain profitability as a firm. I'm proud of how we handled the situation we were faced with.

    Cons

    Limited HQ Growth Opportunities, More Work To Do Than Resources To Do It, Often Unrealistic Expectations

    I often find myself frustrated by the amount of work we are expected to get done and the fact that no matter how much we can accomplish, it never seems like it's good enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus on creating opportunities for home office associates, prioritizing division level initiatives, and investing in home office systems.

    I have been working at Edward Jones

    Pros

    Job Security
    Pay increases
    Friendly environment ( If you work for the right FA, like I do.
    Bonuses
    Room for Growth within the company
    You can transfer within the company to another office ANYWHERE
    You learn a lot about the financial/investment Industry

    Cons

    Can be a little boring
    Very quiet in the office
    Not working with very many people. In a small office, it's just you and the Financial Advisor.
    If you like to work with other people, this isn't for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BOAs should get to earn a vacation like the FAs do.
