    I worked at Edward Jones

    Pros

    after the initial 2 years of hard work the freedom to work when you want and earn alot, plus no start up costs. there is no end of training and the times voted edward jones the 2nd best place to work for in the uk last year, that speak for it's self. you might be wondering why im not still there, mainly i was 23 and couldn't handle working on my own all the time, the avarage age is 41. so please do bear in mind that you will only be working with one other person your pa. i left on great terms and will re apply in 15/20 year from know, when im sick of working with poeple!

    Cons

    your alone much of the time, you have to generate your clients by knocking on thier door
