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

Pros

Positive work environment, good leadership

Cons

Small two branch offices make the days lonely. Door knocking was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. It is particularly difficult in saturated areas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop opening up branches in saturated areas like St. Louis and Chicagoland. You shouldn't drive down one street and find three Edward Jones in less than a mile.

    Pros

    The People Are Willing To Help Make You Successful
    Great Potential Compensation
    Opportunity To Run Your Own Business With Little Outside Influence Once Established

    Cons

    It Is Realistic That Once You Are Established In An Area, You Aren't Leaving & They Know It
    Some Practices & Mentalities Were Not The Most Encouraging
    At The End Of The Day, Making Money Is Number One & If You Can Help The Client A Little Bit Too, That's A Plus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No Advice, So Long As You Are Willing To Accept & Do What They Are Told. Not A Company For Someone Who Is Creative & Looking For Something Outside The Box.
