I worked at Edward Jones

Pros

Can be a nice desk job if you work with a good and fair financial advisor. Great technical support from home office.

Cons

Can be a nightmare working with a horrible financial advisor. High FA turnover. Company will side with FA over BOA's.
Can feel isolated at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be so afraid of losing income from unethical FA's at the expense of loyal BOA's.

    I worked at Edward Jones as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    A job. 40 hours a week. Not the best place to work but ok for a while. Probably good as a full time assoc but not as a contract worker

    Cons

    Pay not very high, stressful work environment, hectic at times. No reason to go out of way

    Pros

    If you're working with the right person, if it's the right fit, and your branch is profitable, you've got pretty great job security. There's a good variety of tasks, so you don't get bored, and it's generally very rewarding to develop relationships with clients. The company is finally recognizing the importance of the branch team (as opposed to just focusing on the FA), and is tailoring more training to the team. The compensation is so-so, but the benefits are quite good, especially the profit-sharing and limited partnership. The corporate culture is unique and supportive.

    Cons

    As noted, the compensation is underwhelming, and there are limited career advancement opportunities for BOAs once you've made Sr. BOA. The biggest challenge is finding an FA with whom you're well-matched. I've seen many FA/BOA relationships turn toxic when their personalities just didn't mesh. The FAs get minimal training on how to manage their BOA, which contributes to the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should create another position for veteran BOAs who want to take on additional challenges/responsibilities, for appropriate compensation. They should also incorporate more "management" training for FAs.
