I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

Pros

It has a fantastic training and support program. You are in your own office with one or two others, so getting along with them is a key. My Investment Adviser was professional, super ethical, and understanding. Great place to help make a difference and have your voice heard.

Cons

Unless you move to Missouri, there are only two positions, and it became cleat, as out office grew, it was not the career for me.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 10 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Edward Jones part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was a thrilling experience working there.

    Cons

    There should be some changing in 'Career Opportunities'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
