I worked at Edward Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Edward Jones is consistently rated by Forbes as one of the top 100 companies to work for. They are a professional organization and ensure all of their employees are ethical and honest in their business. They are community focused and encourage their employees to engage with the people in the city in which their office is located.

Cons

As a financial advisor at Edward Jones, you will be asked to do a lot of sales type activities and put in very long hours. The ability to earn a high salary is a far stretch and can take a financial advisor many, many years to achieve. And, their health insurance coverage is a high deductible coverage so be prepared to spend a lot of your own money out of pocket.

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

    Pros

    A perfect blend of business independence and excellent back office support gives financial advisors the ability to build a successful business serving investors.

    Cons

    New advisors receive a modicum of sales training and very little technical training. Investors are well advised to work with advisors that have been out for a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Consider implementing a process that gives clients the choice of an experienced advisor if/when their FA leaves Edward Jones. This will help build brand loyalty and emphasize the client experience over individual branch location profitability. This may be a better growth strategy than cycling clients through repeated inexperienced FAs.
