    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.

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