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

Pros

Great training as you advance in your practice, outstanding peer support, amazing opportunity if you are willing to do the work.

Cons

Tough in the first few years, work life balance is nearly impossible until you have established yourself in the community.

Advice to Management

Have the regional leaders or location specialists do a thorough analysis of the location for new branches. I am in an area where there were two new advisors ahead of me and and two new advisors behind me, all within a two year time frame. Made for a very difficult prospecting experience.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Their training for the series 7 and the 66 allowed me to pass on the first try. I hear this is not the case at competitive companies.

    Cons

    Company needs to adapt more to having women as financial advisors

    Advice to Management

    More work/life balance needed if you want to attract high quality female candidates.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company seems to have a great culture and wants to be there to support you, especially for the new FA starting out. Most of the local support is by other FA's volunteering their time and expertise.

    Cons

    If you are fortunate enough to be able to work out of a veteran's office, and have them coach you, If you styles do not match that can make for some lack of support.
