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.
