I have been working at Edward Jones part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I get to work with great people and I am constantly improving my people skills. I am also acquainting myself with Jones' internal systems so the transition into an Edward Jones Financial Advisor will be a bit smoother.

Cons

I honestly cannot think of many cons for this position as of right now except for the fact that it is only part-time. I suppose one could apply for a full-time BOA position, but I am currently a college student so that is beyond reason.

Advice to Management

Jones is a fantastic company to work for; all of your people are kind and extremely helpful. Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I truly feel they are focused on the client. There is a big focus on development. Decent work life balance and family friendly. Plenty of opportunity for more responsibility.

    Cons

    Even with a big focus on development, it is difficult to be promoted - Sometimes items out of your control or thoughts of the Partner responsible are what hold you back. More responsibility does not translate to better compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and try to shake the bureaucracy that has been established over the last few years. If you dangle the carrot too long, talent may seek other opportunities.
