The second-smartest career decision I ever made was coming to work here.

Financial Advisor (Current Employee) Flagstaff, AZ

ProsThe 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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
