Approves of CEO

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.
