Edward Jones is a great company, but the two person office setting can create problems.

Pros

The history and culture are part of what makes working for Edward Jones so rewarding. Helping our clients to meet their financial goals is at the center of everything we do.

Small office setting is really like extended family. It takes a lot of work to keep the relationships productive and rewarding.

    Pros

    Training, co-workers bend over backwards to help out new advisors.

    Cons

    Build client base by going door-to-door. First performance benchmark is at four months. If not met, termination of employment is a real possibility. 14 hours days (10 on weekend) expected of new advisors. Selling front-end loaded mutual funds (5.75%) difficult when many superior no-load funds are available.

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

    Pros

    The "status" of the company's name. That's all I've got.

    Cons

    Perpetual meetings, too many projects to handle effectively, ill-equipped, "mean girl" female manager who played favorites, substandard pay, after hours work expected with no compensation, a CTO who was making millions while the grunts did all the heavy lifting. Leaving there was one of the happiest days of my life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire your team leaders based on merit not on tenure with the firm. My team leader had plenty of advice on how her team members should do their jobs but had NO IDEA how to do the work herself. She was unable to use software that should have been STANDARD for her title and department but she had been there for over 20 years so she "earned" the role of team leader by time served.
