    I have been working at Edward Jones part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable employment. You wont get fired unless you speak up against management.

    Cons

    The "culture" worsened every year since I began working at Edward Jones over 10 years ago.
    Discrimination and preferential treatment are common practice at Edward Jones.
    General partners can skip over any company policy.
    The CEO use the "suggs" suggestions box as a forum for scolding employees who complain. Some suggs don't get signed with the financial adviser's name for fear of retaliation.
    The company nickle and dimes employees while making huge profits. "Profit Sharing" is heavily skewed toward management and general partners.
    Forget about work/life balance if you decide to work for Edward Jones.
    The anonymous "feedback" the company solicits yearly or bi-yearly is NOT completely anonymous. Be careful of submitting a negative review via that system.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded about criticism and don't retaliate against employees who speak up.

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

    Pros

    Really good training on the basics of your business. They will give you the step by step guide on how to start a financial advisor business.

    Cons

    You have to be connected or have good timing to get an office to take over. If you start from scratch, chances are, you will not make it.

    Advice to Management

    Make the option to move into an office more available.
