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

Pros

Great training. Plenty of independence. Assistant is not shared so you have lots of in office support. You own office.

Cons

If you arent fortunate to get a good head start your doomed. Odds of success are not relayed to potential candidates when they are explaining the job. First 3 years expect to be paid slave wages if you dont inherit a $50mm office. No 401K match for FA's.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make asset sharing more fair. Minority Advisers are not treated the same as the good old boys

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Their training for the series 7 and the 66 allowed me to pass on the first try. I hear this is not the case at competitive companies.

    Cons

    Company needs to adapt more to having women as financial advisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More work/life balance needed if you want to attract high quality female candidates.
