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

Pros

Everything is taking care of by the firm. You get to focus strictly on adding and helping clients. If you follow the model it works.

Cons

Realistically takes 3 years to build a good client base. It's a long three years while working a ton of hours.

Advice to Management

New hires, especially new to the business, should be given a more realistic picture on how many years you must be patient to build a successful office.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture, very supportive especially with people who start in this industry ( offers a salary and bonuses for the first three years. EJ is the only company that offers a salary for that long). There is a great culture of " paying forward" .

    Cons

    Requires very hard work and extensive hours in the first couple if years ( normal in this industry)

    Advice to Management

    The Goodnight programs need some revision. Veterans get rid of their small accounts without clients' permission. In the long run that's going to hurt us.
