Great company to work for under certain instances.

Financial Advisor (Former Employee)

ProsGreat core values. Investment platform and resources are top notch. Great support group. Training and development are terrific. A lot of quality people that work for the company. Compensation is great once you find your niche and start producing.

ConsVery old school approach at growing your business. If you are not provided an office with assets, you will have a tough time keeping on board with their door knocking and cold calling approach to growing your business. You are often times on an island by yourself with your own thoughts. Stringent standards you must meet or else you will be terminated.

Advice to Senior ManagementIts the 21st century and although door to door can be an effective way to growing your business locally, you must teach alternative ways using favorable introductions with family and friends. People are very opposed to doing business at their door step.

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

    WARNING---Watch Out

    Financial Advisor (Former Employee)

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for less than a year
