    Quit the Cubicle: It's Time to Branch Out

    A cubicle is a great way to collaborate and work alongside your colleagues, but you may feel that you've earned the opportunity to work in your own space. At Edward Jones, we agree. Our financial advisors operate from their own branch offices in the neighborhoods in which they serve.

    Pros

    The autonomy to build my practice focusing on my strengths and having the support of a large company to help in areas that are not the best use of my time to serving clients' needs is unparalleled. The opportunity to earn ownership in the partnership is open to everyone at the firm not just the financial advisors.

    Cons

    Takes time to build your individual practice.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue focusing on supporting the branch team and not just the FA. Thanks for making the tough choices with new regulation to keep the partnership healthy for future generations.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Edward Jones.

    Interview

    Applied for position. A few days later had an email requesting a phone screening. Phone screen was very simple. Lasted about 20 minutes. I was only asked 3 questions. STAR type questions. Immediately received an email asking to move towards application part of process. Filled that out and next day was asked to do a face to face with a local FA. I'm currently at this step in the process
