Pros

Edward Jones is an incredible opportunity for people that are self driven and motivated. There is unlimited earning potential with a schedule that you set yourself. No need for time off requests or vacation days. You work... you get paid, well.

Cons

If you are not disciplined, this is not the job for you. You are responsible for all goals and production. It is 100% commission, fee, and bonus based. This can be very stressful when things are slow.

Advice to Management

Continue to improve how FA's get started in the business. Starting with $0 under management is very stressful and discouraging. It is a motivator, but it can break you early on.

    Full Autonomy, it's your business, it's all up to you to make it or throw in the towel. Great home office support, good training.

    Door to door prospecting, door to door prospecting, and door to door prospecting,

    Advice to Management

    I like the company and I like their mission statement, I'm just not cut out to do door to door prospecting.

    Pros

    -Great benefits, flexible schedule, good compensation. They provide you with all the training you need to get started. If you get along with your advisor, life will be just fine. They have profit sharing and 401k matching.

    Cons

    The health benefits are not the best. If you work in an office where you hate your advisor (boss), life could be miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Allow BOA's to get licensed without having the branch being profitable. Work on getting better health benefits that don't cost so much for a family.
