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.

    Pros

    High level of accountability, good working environment.

    Cons

    Limited growth for a BOA, no program in place to foster the transition from BOA to FA for those interested.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a training program for BOAs who are interested in becoming FAs.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    it has a great training program, probably the best in the industry.

    Cons

    You will knock on doors, you are a traditional advisor, you will have better service but higher prices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    turn into hybrid and become more like etrade schwaub etc
