    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One year of training and a lot of support from headquarters in St. Louis.

    Cons

    It's a two person office. Salary raises, bonuses, promotion to SR. Branch Office Administrator (SR. BOA), incentives, etc. depend entirely on the perfomance, success and advancement of the Financial Advisor (FA). FA also completes an annual review that determines a salary raise.

    Advice to Management

    BOAs should be able to get better raises and promotions regardless of FA perfomance after being with the company for a certain number of years.

    Advice to Management

    Correct the aforementioned cons.
