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

Pros

Edward Jones cares about its employees. As a financial advisor, I run my own office, manage my own assistant, and am highly paid. I'm 27 years old, and have been an advisor for over five years. I would never consider leaving this company.

Cons

You have to work hard, especially in your first five years. You get out of it what you put into it. Those who don't put much into it fail quickly. Don't come to this company if you don't want to make a career out of this business.

    Managed platform is limited.
    Can't do covered calls
    The people who survive churn stock
    Their computer support is terrible outside of east coast business hours

    I have been working at Edward Jones as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company gives all employees a great level of support. They really care about each employee and are always working hard to improve their systems and communications. Edward Jones also has an excellent culture and truly is a unique place to work.

    Cons

    You really need a sales personality for certain positions in order to succeed. If you don't like sales, the FA position is not for you. Also, since each branch is like its own business, there can be immense pressure for FAs to succeed quickly.

    Advice to Management

    The management for this firm is phenomenal! The company is very well organized and always looking for ways to improve.
