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

Pros

I truly feel they are focused on the client. There is a big focus on development. Decent work life balance and family friendly. Plenty of opportunity for more responsibility.

Cons

Even with a big focus on development, it is difficult to be promoted - Sometimes items out of your control or thoughts of the Partner responsible are what hold you back. More responsibility does not translate to better compensation.

Advice to Management

Promote from within and try to shake the bureaucracy that has been established over the last few years. If you dangle the carrot too long, talent may seek other opportunities.
