    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great training as you advance in your practice, outstanding peer support, amazing opportunity if you are willing to do the work.

    Cons

    Tough in the first few years, work life balance is nearly impossible until you have established yourself in the community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the regional leaders or location specialists do a thorough analysis of the location for new branches. I am in an area where there were two new advisors ahead of me and and two new advisors behind me, all within a two year time frame. Made for a very difficult prospecting experience.
