Good company, though the early years are lean.

BOA Branch Office Administrator (Current Employee)

I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 3 years

ProsReputable firm, good people, very client-oriented, sound financial products, decent training, excellent benefits, generous paid time off policy, lay-offs are extremely rare.

ConsAs a branch office administrator (BOA), the base pay is quite low for the amount of responsibility involved. Some branch teams earn bonuses, and if you're hired into a top-producing branch, it may not matter about the base pay. But if you work for a lower-producer, it can be a struggle. Many BOAs that I know must work a second job to make ends meet. Other than the pay, the only negative for some people is relative isolation. Most branches are just two people: a Financial Advisor and a BOA. It suits me all right, but I'm sure it wouldn't be ideal for other personality types.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should really consider if BOA base pay is sufficient when so many of us need to work a second job.....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
