I worked at Edward Jones as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Excellent relationship with clients
Dedicated advisors
Great training program
Advisors with years of experience that exceeds expectations have great perks not only compensation but also exotic vacations

Cons

Door to door is not a great ideal if you're a minority race. You'll have to work twice as hard as new advisors in the rain, sleet, and snow. I'll rather work smarter than passing out from a heat stroke.
Boring environment
This business structure seems to work best in smaller cities and towns
