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

    Pros

    Freedom, flexibility, ability to control one’s own destiny; unlimited income potential; travel awards; partnership; being one’s own boss.

    Cons

    First few years are hard. However, it’s all relative. For a mature person, with other experiences, the link between effort and reward is extremely rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Obviously our leadership is getting good advice from those smarter than me. They don’t need my advice.
