Pros

Good culture, all the experienced advisors try to help the new people as much as they can. You can get lots of support when you have questions too

Cons

The landscape of building a business is so different from 15 or 20 yrs ago as it is today. Need to get new advisors with access to clients who have money faster

Advice to Management

The way to retain people is not to have them under constant threat of termination.

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

    Pros

    Bottom drawer sales training
    Develops people skills
    Some financial product exposure

    Cons

    Slimey,controlling peers
    Terrible heath benefits
    Poor Technology
    Sophomoric approach to business development
    Meager pay first few years

    Do not start as a new-new. It is a revolving door and a way to for established advisors to gain assets when the new broker dies on the vine. Jones's 20/20 vision ( They want to ramp up to 20,000 advisors by 2020) has them cramming advisors on top of each other in small towns. Being the catfish of the financial industry already, this initiative is hurting advisors cash flow. I traversed neighborhoods that have been recently prospected by 3 different Jones guys.

    There is a lot of propaganda out there: Jones being a top 10 place to work...I want to know who Fortune is talking to; most likely home office weenies or advisors who inherited $15 mil plus. I was with Jones almost a year and a half and didn't see one new-new survive from my region.
