    Pros

    my own office, personal assistant, and I don't have to see anyone else on a daily basis. It can be the best place to work in the world if you have the assets and resources to make it through the first 3 years

    Cons

    Just as political as the other firms, but since you have your own office you can be out on your own and not having to deal with it on a daily basis. I was not considered for large offices because I don't kiss a$$. I guess if you are a kiss A$$ this is another pro for you. Also, they pay you next to nothing for the first three years, but you have tons of freedom. Have money saved before you embark on this career.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about the bottom line in your LP/GP and do what's right for this company to grow.

    Pros

    You will sit behind a computer all day long and have the opportunity to listen to your iPod if you desire. Also, management is pretty flexible when it comes down to start/stop time of your day.

    Cons

    Edward Jones claims to be a non-micromanaged workspace...that is a lie. If you like listening to our iPod very loud, this could be the place to work for you, because management is very loud and obnoxious when it comes down to socializing. If you are into management, then Tempe will be a good fit for you, if you want to get into Finance or Accounting, then you will have to move to St. Louis.

    Advice to Management

    If you want your associates to minimize their time socializing, then maybe you should lead with example. Honor promises that are made during one-on-ones...failure to meet goals is a total turn off to your employees.
