    Pros

    The company is built and owned by the FA's. All thanks to Ted Jones who gave the company away to the rest of us. Because of that, the culture of our firm is like no other.

    Cons

    As we grow we start to look more like a big company, which means we create policies rather than have someone make a decision that may go away from the policy. Sometimes, we can do better for the client but our policies do not allow it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GP's enter the home office and create initiatives to get themselves noticed. Sometimes it feels like home office people forget that we have businesses to run. Too many meetings, conference calls, webinars, etc for Leadership team members.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    We have autonomy to truly do what is right for the clients. We can earn an unlimited amount of money helping our clients. We have a wide range of products and services that we offer, including services tailored to the high net worth client. The software systems are just what our clients need; our contact management system is second to none. Others spend time to help develop my leadership skills, which makes me a better person, as well as a better advisor.

    Cons

    There are no disadvantages to working at Edward Jones. I only wish I would have learned about Edward Jones earlier in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am thankful for the opportunity to work here. I appreciate the time that our partners spend helping this place be the best place to work.
