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

    Pros

    You really are building your own business. No one is standing over your shoulder or making you punch a clock. As long as you are achieving the goals that the firm as set, you will be very successful. Those goals are very attainable as long as you put in the work, have a clear understanding of the firm's expectations, and if you put in the work!!!

    Cons

    A job with little supervision requires a considerable amount of self-motivation. Not many people have that trait naturally. If you can't motivate yourself to get out of bed every morning on time and get to it, then you won't be very successful in this field.

    Advice to Management

    As boring of an answer as it may be, I would not change anything that upper management is doing. I have been around for almost a year and have not yet been lied to or taken advantage of. If that changes, I'll be sure to edit this field.
