Pros

Cons

There should be some changing in 'Career Opportunities'

Management is perfect, but as it is said 'There is always a room for improvement", So there can be new broader changes intended to Compensate the Employees.

    Pros

    Firm gives back to the community.
    New South Campus building is nice.

    Cons

    Home office promotions are completely political.
    Stone-age technology (still investigating Linux on the mainframe...)
    Salary frees on all associates so top 5 GPs can collect $30 in GP return (this in a down year)

    Advice to Management

    Realize that working at Edward Jones is not a gift to be treasured by associates - associates need to be compensated. Clearly, the GPs aren't working there simply out of pride for Edward Jones.

  2. This is a company that is constantly changing, and not always for the better.

    Pros

    Broker in a Box -- If you like McDonald's, you will like Edward Jones.

    Cons

    The only beverage is Kool Aid.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the clients, and the clients include your advisors, and "keeping" them not just "growing" your numbers. Attrition is a concern.
