I have been working at Edward Jones

Pros

Job is commission only, so the earning potential is there but its a tough environment right now. There are alot of benefits for working with a private company and the culture is great.

Cons

Tough goals after a year or two. With economy in slump it is hard to make enough sales to meet current goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is fair in most cases. It is a very close relationship between very successful long standing emplyees and even the newest employee which is nice.

    I worked at Edward Jones

    Pros

    Was paid a salary during training (a joke) and studying for the Series 7, 66, and insurance exam. Free trip to Arizona to attend training classes or as I like to fondly refer to as a week of endless role playing with other poor shmucks involving various sales scenerios. If you like a cult like atmosphere and like being indoctrinated (the koolaid is served on a regular basis) you will truly find a home. Also, if you like to attend alot of indoctrination er training courses in the desert this is right up your alley.

    Cons

    One word. Doorknocking. For two years you are expected to go doorknocking like an Avon lady in the hopes that some old lady hands over her money to a complete stranger standing on her doorstep. They tell you that you are starting YOUR business and then do nothing but tell you how to run your supposed business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just call it what it is. Pyramid selling. We,re all adults here. The assets are what matters and the FAs are expendable, unless that one is related or politically tied in and in that case I guess they already are aware of the structure.

    Pros

    Compensation, The ability to make your own schedule, get to deal with great deals of people, help is only a phone call away.

    Cons

    Help is always a phone call away, Door Knocking is always a lot more difficult than people realize as people are very guarded about someone coming to their doors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to offer more help to young associates as many struggle throughout and just burn out all to quickly with out adequate help.
