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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Top of the line training in the financial services field, good back office support, established brand in most areas

    Cons

    It works when it works, but when it doesn't don't expect any help from local leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your commission structure to further increase your employee retention.
