    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.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training, support, autonomy, very high income potential. Clear expectations. I’m already making more income than forecasted and I’ve only been here a year. I love working hard to earn bonuses! There is always someone in HQ to promptly answer my questions when I need help but....

    Cons

    Must stay humble enough to ask for help! This job requires emotional endurance, months of classroom training and testing. Initial setback in pay because initial offer is typically 70% of provable income history. This does not include bonuses. Self direction and discipline can be hard when working alone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fantastic in field support

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Compensation; Friendly Culture; Affordable Medical, Dental and Vision Benefits; Career Advancement; Career Development; Trimesterly Bonuses; Great Fringe Benefits; and Paid Vacation.

    Cons

    Lack of technology to be able to advance processes and transplant associates are not being encouraged to follow the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in our culture and make the invesstment in technology and systems to better our abilities to support the firm and the branches. Our culture is our big draw to the company and what sets us apart. Bring new hires up to speed on our culture while onboarding them.

    Pros

    I was an intern, and then hired as a on-call BOA. The internship was paid, and I worked with an understanding FA who guided me and helped me grow a lot. Great for first "real-world" experience.

    Cons

    Because the company is well established, critical thinking was not predominant. Also, a job here might not be too relevant if you are not passionate about sales.
