I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great place to start your career. They pay for performance, which isn't all that good.

Cons

If you don't want to be a manager, little opportunity for growth. Your manager will only know how to groom you towards becoming a manager. Not an analyst, bond trader, or anything analytical.

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

    Pros

    A company who is dedicated to doing what is right for the investor knowing it will be good for the company as well over time. Very focused on what the customer experience is and how it impacts the advisers business as well. Constantly improving technology to help the advisor be more efficient as well as have the needed information ready for a client.

    Cons

    You must be a focused, independent and hard working person to succeed. We want successful people from almost any background to consider Edward Jones. Previous investment knowledge is not necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the commitment to excellence going
