I worked at Edward Jones full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Edward Jones has created a terrific culture-- everyone is very willing to help each other suceed, good focus on family and work/life balance, simple business model

Cons

Unless you start in an existing office or by taking over existing assets, it can be very challenging to make any real money in the first few years. Be prepared to have a fluctuating and at time anemic income.

The income figures suggested as averages for new advisors are grossly inflated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent during the hiring process concerning what new advisors can truly expect.
