    Pros

    Training was engaging and thorough. Training department personnel were more than helpful and always available for follow up. Regional events are very high end and accommodating.

    Cons

    Knocking on doors and not having an office to work out of is a major problem when trying to get advisors up and on their way. After being out of the company for a year I am still meeting people in the community that say there was no way they would have ever used EDJ based on the way they seek out new clients. New advisors are never given straight truthful answers. Makes you feel so less of a person than you are. 800 contacts through door knocking and networking with less than 6 months of being a vulture and attempting to get at the prospects money makes it an impossible task for a "new, new" advisor. Ask the hard questions before accepting a position with this company and make sure you get the answers not some half witted, beat around the bush answer that gets you off of their back. Very disappointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take away the "new, new" advisor status and figure out better ways to inject advisors into the community. It will give the company more respect and give the new advisors a better experience. Truth is how you earn respect.

    Pros

    Love working in a small office. Lack of office politics.

    Cons

    Once a Sr Boa, not much else to do unless you become a FA.
