    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Mutual respect with Financial Advisor can be great. Clients gratitude. Excellent training and HQ speed dial for help.

    Cons

    Healthcare employee-paid [for me @ 25% take home pay] No wage increase for tenured employees. Too little pay to live alone.

    Advice to Management

    1. Bring back Jim Weddle's appreciation for BOAs.
    2. Don't brag about Firm's profitability while taking away from experienced BOAs.
