    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I would recommend as a good place to get some experience early in your career with a respected financial services firm. Then move on.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities. Firm prefers to hire higher level positions from outside rather than promote from within.
    Pay and bonuses not commensurate with level of responsibilities and contributions.
    General Partners have little respect for employees and sales force. Don't be conned by the "partnership" propaganda.
    Firm uses limited partnership as a carrot for tenure and a mask for low pay and mediocre benefits.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Mutual respect with Financial Advisor can be great. Clients gratitude. Excellent training and HQ speed dial for help.

    Cons

    Healthcare employee-paid [for me @ 25% take home pay] No wage increase for tenured employees. Too little pay to live alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Bring back Jim Weddle's appreciation for BOAs.
    2. Don't brag about Firm's profitability while taking away from experienced BOAs.
