Former Employee - Financial Advisor

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

Pros

Incredible training. Supportive network of advisors. You are given every opportunity to succeed with all the right tools. I was never turned away from another advisor when I needed help.

Cons

Perhaps more emphasis on sales training, and more exposure to the appointment process. Aside from that, I have nothing bad to say about the company. It is just a difficult industry to work in.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing! Just make sure your new hires are given the opportunity to see first and second appointments, and not just annual review appointments. Maybe provide some additional... sales training as well.

"GREAT FIRM"Aug 19, 2017

Current Employee - Current Employee

I have been working at Advent Asset Management full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Advent Capital management is a great firm. I have been an employee for over ten years and achieved success through hard work, contribution of co-works, and being on the Advent platform. Advent... provides all the necessary tools for each employee to get the job done. The environment is one in which co-works look out for each other and develop long term relationships both in and of the office. Although it is irksome to read the slanderous lies and comments on glass door, I understand that Advent Capital is not for all, there is no proverbial "free lunch". However, the actual free lunch that is provided is quite good. For those who work hard and have a positive attitude, they will be rewarded with success and robust compensation.

Cons

Being on top of your game and hard work is expected.

Advice to Management

Advent needs to do a better job in the hiring process to weed out those that are underachievers and have a negative dispositions.
