    Pros

    Set your own hours and unlimited potential gains.

    Cons

    Unless you are a real shark and are trying to get people to buy something, no matter the cost, then you will not fit in. The training program makes you go door to door trying to sell investments to strangers. Just ask yourself one question, "If someone came to your door and tried to tell you to give them your life savings and invest it with them," you would say hell no. Welcome to the outdated business model of Edward Jones.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the training program and core business model.

    The ability to be your own boss. You can make as much or as little money as you want it all depends on how much drive you have.
