Pros

If you branch does well. You will do well.

Cons

Your salarie grow is directly dependent on someone else's work ethic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is really isn't any room for advancement. If you have a good financial advisor you have the opportunity for bonuses, but if not your will remain an minimally paid hourly employee.

    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.

    I have been working at Edward Jones

    Pros

    After finishing my first year at Edward Jones, I truly feel like this is the best company to work for. My pay was tremendously higher than I thought it was going to be in the first year. I love the fact that you have your own BOA, set your own hours, and win diversification trips by the hard work you do.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone. You have to be very self motivated, and have management skills since you are your own boss and have someone working underneath you. Don't focus on the ups and downs and look at the big picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When first starting out, try to give more training on the market and investments at KYC rather than mostly the customer service side.
