I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Most ethical advisor firm by far, truly look out for their clients
Great training especially if you have limited to no financial knowledge
Good Support and help for new advisors

Cons

Sales Sales Sales... minimal financial knowledge truly needed
Door knocking and cold calling, in all weather
Very high turnover/burnout rate

Advice to ManagementAdvice

New FAs are sold on the lifestyle and benefits of successful advisors, however little emphasis is placed on the high burnout rate, stress and hardships that takes to just survive in the business.

    Very unpleasant, with some nice people, many backstabbing people.

    Consider letting employees have some time off on the weekend.
