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

Pros

Commission is at 40%, Profit Sharing, 401K, Two trips available to win every year, trimester bonuses. Most FA's are extremely helpful. Clients are excellent. One phone call away from Home Office at all times.

Cons

If you don't do the work, you won't make it. But, EJ gives the recipe, all you have to do is follow it.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Get great real world experience of being a financial advisor.
    Pretty good pay. Get to actually work with clients on investments.
    They pay you to study at home for Series 7 & 66.
    Get to speak with top producing FAs in firm.

    Cons

    In FACD the supervisors try to put fear in you, that if you don't score well on role plays, you could be fired. No commissions on what you sell in FACD. Program can drag on and get boring in the later stages.

    Advice to Management

    Somehow incorporate the FACD FAs to work with prospects that they actually develop into clients and earn the commissions.
