I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great training. Plenty of independence. Assistant is not shared so you have lots of in office support. You own office.

Cons

If you arent fortunate to get a good head start your doomed. Odds of success are not relayed to potential candidates when they are explaining the job. First 3 years expect to be paid slave wages if you dont inherit a $50mm office. No 401K match for FA's.

Advice to Management

Make asset sharing more fair. Minority Advisers are not treated the same as the good old boys

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

    Pros

    Surrounded by professional people and the company culture is great.

    Cons

    Lots of door to door canvassing required to create new business.

    Advice to Management

    May want to look for new ways to train advisors other than door to door canvassing as this seems to have become a bit antiquated as times have changed as well as no soliciting laws.
