Best Company Culture Around

Financial Advisor (Current Employee)
Knoxville, TN

ProsCooperative colleagues, not competitive. The firm promotes putting the client first, growing your business through long-term relationships and service, and career-life balance. You have an extraordinary amount of freedom to run the business the way you would like and to recommend investments that you feel are best for your clients--with some limitations. There are no proprietary Edward Jones investments to sell and I have never felt pressured to offer a particular product or service.

ConsThis is a sales job, after all, and it isn't easy. This is particularly true while building your business--which is your responsibility. Because it is a BUSINESS, you have to keep the bottom line in mind. This career path can be quite mentally challenging and the earnings can be unsteady.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Be a hardcore salesman or you won't last as an FA

    Financial Advisor (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

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


    Pros: ****Before taking a job as an FA you need to look at yourself and seriously ask yourself if you are willing to cold call/knock on… Cons: - Prospecting and selling family, friends (can be complicated) - Always have to be selling - Your clients aren't yours if you leave, VERY BIG… Advice to Senior Management: Don't be shills for American funds. Around 70% of EJ funds are in American funds, EJ is essentially the sales… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
