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

Pros

Great support to become licensed, conservative values

Cons

No work/life balance, cult like culture, lots of scripts, health insurance lacks negotiating power with providers, technology and tools are limited

Advice to Management

Decision making processes in recruiting and placement into offices need to be restructured to identify staffing opportunities, "ownership" messages to advisors should be objective, more effort in diversity and technology

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The training on selling techniques is ok, people are friendly, the trips were first class. They put up a new sign outside and only charged my office $4,000.

    Cons

    The image they create that you are working for yourself is completely wrong, there is no question they control everything you do. The payouts are very low, they only pay once each month. The general partners call the shots and get all the money. Product offerings are very thin. They want you to sell A Share everything so the clients lose a chunk of funds to commission up front. They are now trying to jam everyone into managed accounts....which are more costly over time with no guarantee of better performance. Field supervision is repressive, questioning everything you do and forcing you to waste time explaining what you did even if it was suitable. The regional people forget your phone number when you need them most. They expect you to recruit and undertake regional tasks without remuneration.

    Advice to Management

    See above....tell the truth instead of creating a false image
