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

    Pros

    I am a home office associate based in St. Louis. Edward Jones provides associates a lot of opportunities to work on different projects, become exposed to many areas within the firm and not a company that tries to keep associates in the same role for 20 years. Edward Jones also provides many training courses in which you can choose from for your own professional development.

    Cons

    Like any corporate job, the workload can be heavy, efficient processes not always there and can be stressul at times. But this is called life and the reason we get paid to come in every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate associates on how they perform, not how they dress.

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

    Pros

    Hard working people will do well in the farmlands. Good reputation. Good place to invest $500 in a mutual fund if you do not have a bank broker.

    Cons

    Knocking on residential doors in the city or busy suburbs is ridiculous and should be banned like cold calling. No investment bank so do not expect high net worth clients. Misleading HR practices; recruiting is #1 goal, not increasing rep revenue. No leadership, no direction. Horrible training. Will hire anyone and 9 out of 10 will fail in the first year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay out of the cities where you clearly can't compete and build some integrity into your hiring processes.
