Featured Review

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.

Former Employee - Senior Human Resources Business Partner

I worked at Capital Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

My decision to leave was based on a unique growth opportunity. I deliberately waited until after a year to post a review as I wanted time away to reflect on my experience and also compare the role... and environment to my current employer/position. The opportunity to grow here is dependent on how much effort you put in. I had a ”tough as nails” leader who expected the best and was completely invested in our growth and development; she pushed me out of my comfort zone and I became a better HR professional because of it. My small team was a supportive group of caring, smart, and highly capable HR professionals. The HR organization was comprised of some of the smartest and kindest people I had the pleasure of working with. Work is done with the culture and employee experience in mind. Communications and planning of future initiatives were well-vetted and executed. Having been at another prime employer before Capital where culture and employee engagement were at the top of the list in terms of importance, I didn’t really appreciate it until I left. I now realize that Capital is really a special place. Nothing will be handed to you here. If you have the opportunity to work here and want to be successful for the long-term, be humble, proactive, forward-thinking and solutions-oriented. If you try to coast by, you will not get the most that this company and department has to offer. It may not be for everybody, but then again, not every company and organization is meant to fit every person. Lastly, the Total Rewards package is pretty great.

Cons

With any organization, there’s always room for improvement. Opportunity areas that I see here are the following: 1) Time it takes to make decisions can be lengthy and at times, an exhaustive... process. However, having been in my current environment for over a year, I can appreciate the extra effort 2) openness to working flexibly on a more frequent basis
