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

Pros

Positive work environment, good leadership

Cons

Small two branch offices make the days lonely. Door knocking was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. It is particularly difficult in saturated areas.

Advice to Management

Stop opening up branches in saturated areas like St. Louis and Chicagoland. You shouldn't drive down one street and find three Edward Jones in less than a mile.
