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

    Pros

    Fast-paced, high degree of personal responsibility. Associates set their own goals for review. On-going training is a requirement. Personal responsibility for your personal and career development is high priority.

    Cons

    EJ has it's own culture. If you want to sit in a cube and only do your job, you will not fit in. There is no room for slacking off. Some of the technology is behind the times and level of competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Increase level of priority for technology projects that involve client ease of access to their accounts and transactions.
