    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Edward Jones gives you all that you need to be successful. Their training is off the charts amazing and their support is fabulous. I am not going to lie, it is hard work but, if you're willing to work hard and follow their training, you can succeed. The work life balance is also wonderful. It's hard to find a company that cares as much about their employees as their clients, I must say, Edward Jones does great in both. Edward Jones will be my career for the rest of my life. Thank you Edward Jones!

    Pros

    They have a great culture and almost everyone wants you to succeed.

    Cons

    As a Financial Advisor, it is difficult to understand the position before you do it. This can make it difficult for someone to stay in the position.

    Former Employee - Financial Advisor in New Brunswick, NJ

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of freedom...you are not set to a traditional schedule but you are putting in far more than 40 hours a week Guidance and support are easily available from peers and home office employees Salaried worker for the first four years to help you get by while building your book. Great bonuses and trips

    Cons

    Sales generation is based off door to door if you do not already have existing clients to bring in The culture isn't for everyone, but for those who buy in it can be a great place for them to work

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They care about the employees and the clients served. They offer on-the-job training. In the first year, you may obtain two pay increases and bonusets. They ask regularly for feedback on their training, documents and leadership skills. The company is owned by the employees.

    Cons

    The starting pay is rather low and the learning curve is extensive.

    Pros

    Penny seems to be moving the company away from the good old boys club. If your an advisor your treated really well and can make unlimited amounts of money.

    Cons

    There is a good old boys club! Full service brokerage is becoming obsolete.
