    Pros

    Great training for licensing. Everything is awesome at the corporate level. Great training at the headquarters in St. Louis. Challenging but rewarding.

    Cons

    BEWARE!! The local branch support was little to none existant. If you are not sure of the next step reach out and ask for some help. It can be intimidatin when you don't feel like you have anyone to go to.

    Advice to Management

    Help train the advisor. My advisor apologized for not training me and I failed the oral exam, losing my opportunity to work with Edward Jones. But it was their lose because I am not on my way to being a million dollar producer with a competitor.
