Pros

Paid an hourly rate w/ OT figured in on a weekly basis (40reg + 5ot) during licensing, strong support culture, paid transportation and training, eventual storefront office in most cases,

Cons

Strong support culture - Business Coach, Perf Accountability Leader, Field Trainer, Regional Leader, Regional Leader Prep, Regional Leader Interviewer, Location Specialist, Visiting Vet......to many hands in the mix that results in confusion and frustration

Advice to Management

Look for qlty vs qty for your 2020 push of new advisors

    Pros

    Everyone you meet is part of a vast support channel. I was shocked to be welcomed with open arms in an industry that has a bad reputation for intense competition and back stabbing. I have not seen any of these bad rumors that my friends have at competing firms.

    Cons

    Rejection and hearing the word "no" can be intimidating.

    Advice to Management

    Edward Jones is for the serious, long term investor. With that said, there are restrictions for the investment vehicles we can provide to the clients because some of them are too risky. If I had any advice, and I say this with a grain of salt, is to open up all investment vehicles so we can offer our clients more.

    Pros

    Interesting work with great clients. Flexible hours and excellent office amenities.

    Cons

    With just 2 people in each office, there is no back up. The job can take over your life.

    Advice to Management

    BOA position should have several levels other than 2. The greater responsibility, the greater the pay.
