I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

This job is not for everyone, but if you can handle rejection, ( I'm married so it's easy) and like financial products this job is second to non. You have the ability to help families with their retirement and become their trusted advisor. The relationships you have with your clients are better than the paycheck.

Edward Jones is a great company and everyone is so helpful. They want you to succeed.

I've worked in banking and accounting for 14 years and my current pay is 30% better than my salary. The harder/smarter I work, the more I get paid. Who complains about this? If you want a larger check work harder!

Cons

This job is very addicting, so I have to be careful not to neglect my family. Because you set the hours, you need to discipline, but this is true freedom!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more selective in hiring. Some new hires don't think this is a "sales" job.

    Pros

    Great people and great culture. They work hard to make everyone feel part of the team. They also rarely have to do lay-offs, which some of their competitors can't say for themselves.

    Cons

    The healthcare benefits are expensive. But this may be more of a comment on the industry standard rather than EJ themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the quality of middle tier leadership.
