Pros

I can not thank Edward Jones enough for the blessings that I have received for my family thu this wonderful firm. GREAT CAREER. GREAT COMP. GREAT CLIENTS.

Cons

THE POOR APPLICANTS (WHO MANY OF WHICH YOU CAN FIND ON THIS SITE WHO NO LONGER WORK AT EDJ)
EDWARD JONES IS A GREAT COMPANY THAT INVESTS IN THE SUCCESS OF EVERY EMPLOYEE. It amazes me to see folks who come to work for EJ and receive the best training in the INDUSTRY and then don't do their part. Then guess where they end up? Writing a negative review on glassdoor. The partnership pays over 100k for each employee to be trained and put on the path to profitability. If YOU are NOT WILLING to WORK HARD, save the partners the cost of training you and save virtually everyone at the firm their portion of the profit sharing that would have been more if it wasnt for the fact that you didnt do enough honest SELF-EVALUATION on the job you wanted to have.

That being said, please don't apply for EDWARD JONES, if you aren't willing to do the work to become very successful. (oh and by the way, no other firm wants you either; go to the top of this page and search in a different industry please. There is no way around the hard work to become successful)

    Pros

    Training to pass the Series 7 and 66, as long as you try, you should have no issue passing the exams. They pay for you to learn....

    Cons

    Limited help, failed advisors providing guidance, they are the Walmart of the financial industry. You are told to only sell certain products, some which may not be beneficial to clients.
