    Pros

    Been with the firm for about 13 years. Last year earned about $200k, I'm a limited partner and typically earn two company paid vacations per year. I earn trimester bonuses and profit sharing each year. There's no ceiling on my earnings and I make my own schedule. Our firm makes a huge effort to hire women and minorities. I believe the firm really cares about their employees; offers a complete benefits package. Home office support is normally great. I'm free to run my office the way I want as long as I'm legal, ethical and profitable.

    New advisors are paid salary + commissions/bonuses over their first three years with additional bonus opportunities over the 3-6 year period.

    Cons

    Commission sales isn't for everyone, and if you're lazy or feel entitled, don't apply. It took a lot of work when I started -- 12-15 hr days. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it.

    Our business model (only one advisor in each office) isn't particularly cost effective. That said, I like the idea that I control my office & expenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to foster the "Jones" culture. I trust our leadership.

    Pros

    Excellent relationship with clients
    Dedicated advisors
    Great training program
    Advisors with years of experience that exceeds expectations have great perks not only compensation but also exotic vacations

    Cons

    Door to door is not a great ideal if you're a minority race. You'll have to work twice as hard as new advisors in the rain, sleet, and snow. I'll rather work smarter than passing out from a heat stroke.
    Boring environment
    This business structure seems to work best in smaller cities and towns
