    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 20 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.

      Drop the formal attire. This is 2019 and we want to attract talent.

      I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      The Edward Jones Internship is very interesting and hands on. The administrators are just as enthusiastic as their students and push their interns to think creatively while always offering their support when needed. Assignments, activities, case studies, etc. are helpful and very life like. Modules and discussions are in depth and participants are able to ask questions and share their findings with everyone.

      Cons

      Some assignments are a lot of work and will take a long time to complete.
