    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Only thing I appreciated were Co-workers and paychecks

    Cons

    Worst management I have ever seen in a department. Measurements with the position were not only impossible, but irrelevant to what the position required. Also too many hidden agendas. Pay was beyond ridiculous and HR was useless in investigating ongoing issues within the department. Overall just the worst type of experience due to hack departmental management. Glad to be gone, best move Ive ever made.

    Advice to Management

    Human Resources needs to actually do their jobs and not look the other way with departmental issues. Advice to management in my department.....resign.
