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

Pros

The ability to advise clients and invest their money with a high degree of objectivity -- Edward Jones does not produce its own financial instruments, so there is essentially no proprietary bias.

Cons

It's hard work in the early years; be prepared for long hours and long weeks. But the rewards are commensurate.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Cooperative 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.

    Cons

    This 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.
