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

Pros

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for 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.

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

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Very 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 ManagementAdvice

    Its 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.
