Current Employee - Financial Advisor in Santa Rosa, CA

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

Pros

Great support to become licensed, conservative values

Cons

No work/life balance, cult like culture, lots of scripts, health insurance lacks negotiating power with providers, technology and tools are limited

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Decision making processes in recruiting and placement into offices need to be restructured to identify staffing opportunities, "ownership" messages to advisors should be objective, more effort in diversity and technology

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Former Employee - Financial Advisor Intern

    I worked at Edward Jones as an intern (less than an year)

    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
