    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The second best decision of my life was saying yes to the EDJ opportunity. I have put four kids through college and am well prepared for my retirement. I will celebrate my 20th anniversary soon and look forward to the next 10 years.

    Cons

    No one will do the work for you. You must turn strangers into clients. There is no better way than starting with a handshake.
