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

Pros

Great training. High pass rate for Series 7 and 66 exams. You will always know what is expected of you and what you need to do to accomplish your goals as well as theirs. The job is tough, but Edward Jones will make sure you aren't alone.

Cons

The Edward Jones culture can be overwhelming at times. Also, you will be limited as to what you can provide for your clients, but most of what they truly need - you can provide.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

So much consideration is given in the beginning of a career at Edward Jones, but once you are successful, the company will leave you alone. Sometimes this harsh transition can be difficult.

    I have been working at Edward Jones (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company seems to offer competitive benefit packages. Their training program for both Financial Advisors and also BOA's, is impressive and easy to follow.

    Cons

    As a BOA, it seems difficult to transfer to the corporate office for career progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to provide a career path for those BOA's interested in career progression.

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

    Pros

    Only have to work with one person in office. Work life balance is right on. The benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    The pay is very low for a BOA position. Should be higher because of the amount of work you do compared to the amount of work the FA does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make salaries more desireable.
