    I worked at A.G. Edwards & Sons full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My superiors, VPs and MD were very smart but also down to earth, happy to speak with me, helped me along in my career. Supportive environment, the kind of folks I was happy to go out for a beer with after work, and not run to my car and speed out of the parking lot.

    Cons

    Wish I was paid a bit better, but such are the times.

    I worked at A.G. Edwards & Sons

    Pros

    Used to be a very close knit family kind of place, until change at the top.

    Cons

    Politics, kissing up and back stabbing took over when CEO changed and sold out the company
