    Pros

    2-person offices allow you to get to know your Branch Team. We care deeply about the client experience and building life time friends/relationships with our clients. This atmosphere fosters close family-type empathy and caring. Desire is to have clients you'd love to take on vacation with you and it happens. I've made friends for life in my 25+ years here. Every day is a learning experience with no two days the same. Industry is changing constantly which gives room for growing as an individual as well as with your Branch team. For Financial Advisors, you can work your own schedule and make things happen around the balance of family and business and career. Regional activities open doors to serve in the community while supporting each other in all areas of business. Edward Jones attracts the best people in the industry, the cream of the crop. It is a place to learn and grow for anyone who seeks to work hard and make a difference on a daily basis in other's lives.

    Cons

    Because we are mostly 2-person offices, you see both the good and the bad days of individuals. You must learn to give space when needed to your Branch team while respecting their needs as well as your own.

    Advice to Management

    There is no limit (expect yourself) to the Financial Advisor in reaching personal goals in business. Regional opportunities give possible leadership roles. Moving to Home Office positions can be done to advance into higher management positions if desired.
