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

    Pros

    Name recognition and on-site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Training on the job specific material was rushed and too much material covered in too little time. Facilitator, while very knowledgeable about the subject matter, was a poor "teacher."

    Conditions of employment NOT communicated until AFTER I began working. Examples:
    1. Employees must have their financial portfolios with EJ.
    2. Call Center environment...stuck at desk for 8 hours w/headset.
    3. Team lead who hired me NOT doing my evaluations...another Sr. Team member is.

    Advice to Management

    Need full transparency during interview/hiring process.
    Less drink the kool-aid training...more emphasis on job specific training.

    "Disappointed in company policies. BOA Texas"

    Pros

    Can be a nice desk job if you work with a good and fair financial advisor. Great technical support from home office.

    Cons

    Can be a nightmare working with a horrible financial advisor. High FA turnover. Company will side with FA over BOA's.
    Can feel isolated at times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so afraid of losing income from unethical FA's at the expense of loyal BOA's.
