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

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.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get to work with really great clients. Meet people and get to help them understand more about their finances. Get to help them plan and save for all of their future financial needs.

    Cons

    Constantly under pressure to generate commissions and add clients. Milestones in my region were significantly higher then the corporate ones. The trainer I had was busy trying to build his own client base and had little time for training. Not a lot of interaction with other people in the company. Most of the time you are by yourself. Leadership team was the typical "A" type, over the top personalities and the expectations was everyone should be like them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Edward Jones is a great company with a long and respected history. The company is drifting away for the basic fundamental principals that make it an attractive place to work. Right now it feels like a place where you are being pressed to the limit every day. Like your trying to make people quit.
