Good to get started and learn to be independent. You work for them and they own your business.

I worked at Edward Jones full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Really good training on the basics of your business. They will give you the step by step guide on how to start a financial advisor business.

Cons

You have to be connected or have good timing to get an office to take over. If you start from scratch, chances are, you will not make it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the option to move into an office more available.

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

    Pros

    Edward Jones created a wonderful culture. Everyone you work with is very supportive and pay is competitive. They also provide great training.

    Cons

    It's long hours, but that's what it takes to build a business. Expect to work more than 60 hours a week for the first few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand product availability. I understand the need to protect clients, but many of them are sophisticated enough to use options.
