    I worked at Edward Jones as an intern (less than a 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

    Pros

    Will push you to get all of our FINRA licenses. You will learn alot about the industry. The products are top notch.

    Pay is low unless you are an FA. Not alot of upward movement unless you play the games.

    Promote from within.
