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

Pros

Quality training, ongoing support, autonomy, building your own business, ownership feel without the costs, top notch research and analysts.

Cons

not for everyone, some forget why they originally chose Edward Jones, but over all I am very happy with Edward Jones and most that don't follow the process or don't believe in what they are taught don't succeed

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay based on personal achievement, partners genuinely encouraging me to succeed, compassionate with personal issues like illnesses and death of family members, ability to earn travel, having a personal Branch Office Adminstrator, being proud of the reputation of the firm, firm is constantly working to innovate and improve, striving to treat everyone equally with no special treatment based on production like better rooms on trips etc.

    Cons

    Higher net worth individuals don't understand the Edward Jones business model, new hires don't understand and appreciate the culture and history of the firm, other firms in the industry look down on the firm, we don't have consistent standards as to office appearance

    Advice to Management

    Continue to organically grow the firm and be strict about adding employees from other brokerage firms unless they truly understand and appreciate the culture

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At Edward Jones, Financial Advisors have the opportunity to run their own business without having to own their own business. There is a lot of autonomy, so your income is based solely on the work and effort you put forth.

    Cons

    There are downsides to every company, but there is not a better company in the financial services industry to work for.
