    Encouraging and Supportive

    Aug 11, 2022 - On-Call Branch Office Administrator in Murfreesboro, TN
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to learn and grow; plenty of support via Home Office and JonesLink (internal documentation). Someone is always available to help you over the phone. My particular branch is small, which for me is nice; my FA (financial advisor) is highly encouraging and supportive, providing advice and additional training. If you like people, are honest and trustworthy, and care about getting things done right--and maybe if you are an extrovert--this is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Not for those who don't like making phone calls or who get very nervous dealing with the phone (I have survived by the grace of God). It can also get overwhelming when many things happen at once (rare, but possible). Honestly, that's my only con.

    Great Branch, Great Job

    Aug 10, 2022 - Senior Branch Office Administrator 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Company with great character. Encouraged and rewarded for my job. If you work in a good Branch for a great financial advisor, you will stay for years and have a great career and income.

    Cons

    Each branch or financial advisor determines the main percentage of bonus that you receive. So depending on that person's discretion about your job performance or even their willingness to share their bonus with you is in their hands

    Family oriented place to work

    Aug 3, 2022 - Financial Advisor 
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Edward Jones emphasises family and allows you autonomy of your schedule and calendar to build you own business.

    Cons

    Gifting of assets to too junior of FAs keeps them from pushing to build their own business and should be reserved for those with a proven track record of success.
