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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work independently, and enjoy the benefits of your own hard work. You meet great people in all aspects of the company. Peer support and mentoring are part of the corporate culture and you will quickly find your niche if you pay close attention to your chosen business region.

    Cons

    Long hours. Hard work. Self-care is mandatory = Make it part of your personal schedule. Some limitations can seem ill-informed but are actually there to maintain simplicity and transparency in an industry that can be seen to be ill-informed or immoral. No one ever got into trouble keeping things simple.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appropriately certified, or informed, individuals should be given more latitude to 'test' access to specific markets - with informed consent.
