I worked at Edward Jones full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

If you can stick in the business, your pay will be excellent over the course of time
Independence
Profit sharing and profitability bonus can be very lucrative
GREAT place to gain experience on many different types of assets/investments, esp for a young person looking to find a niche in the world of finance
Very ethical company

Cons

VERY, very, very challenging to begin as a young person without much experience
Expectations become lofty quickly
People with connections often get great perks (this frustrated me immensely)
You must be expecting a highly sales-based job - at times the "advice" is secondary

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give young advisors without connections a leg up
realize that when the economy/market is poor, sales are extremely difficult (expectations do not change)

  1. Great company to work for, door knocking and cold calling needs to be your strength

    Pros

    Edward Jones puts a great deal of effort into your success and gives you everything you need to make yourself successful.

    Cons

    Even if the company gives you training, it was a little lacking on personal supervision. I would have liked to work in an office with a seasoned Financial Advisor for 3 - 6 months before on my own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When the economy is hard, give the new Advisors a little wiggle room.
