I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Quality training, ongoing support, autonomy, building your own business, ownership feel without the costs, top notch research and analysts.

Cons

not for everyone, some forget why they originally chose Edward Jones, but over all I am very happy with Edward Jones and most that don't follow the process or don't believe in what they are taught don't succeed

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great support; good training, independence, unhlimited potential, great regional teamwork; everyone wants to see you succeed!

    Cons

    until the new FA has been granted a branch and/or a BOA the work is more challenging than someone that has a branch from the beginning. Prospects ask regularly where is your office? If you do not meet at their home, the challenge is finding a place to meet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, this is a great company, no complaints. The opportunity is real, but if a plan can be in place to help new FA with potential survive while they grow their business it would be great. It is not if the opportunity is legit, it is if I am going to have enough time to build the business based on my family obligations (bill, expenses) while the business grows.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Edward Jones is a privately held company owned solely by it's employees. This allows it to make different business decisions than other companies. It is a very family friendly company who always puts the interest of the client first.

    Cons

    This is a very difficult business for some people. You must have a entrepreneurial spirit, be self motivated and goal oriented. Working in an autonomous environment is also difficult for some people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never loose the culture of this firm.
