    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is the best company to work for- the support and perks make life so enjoyable.

    Cons

    Building your business from the ground up requires blood, sweat & tears and you don't see a good pay day for awhile.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Incredible training. Supportive network of advisors. You are given every opportunity to succeed with all the right tools. I was never turned away from another advisor when I needed help.

    Cons

    Perhaps more emphasis on sales training, and more exposure to the appointment process. Aside from that, I have nothing bad to say about the company. It is just a difficult industry to work in.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Bonuses, and can be challenging and fulfilling

    Cons

    Raises are only about $ 0.50 a year, and your only performance feedback is from your FA, and hinges on their mood / feelings. If you get a good one, your life is awesome. If you work with someone who is uncooperative, unproductive, unfair, etc, your work life is horrible. As it's just the two of you in the office

    I worked at Edward Jones

    Pros

    The company overall is a great company. I’ve met some great FA’s within the company but it’s hard to know how you will mesh with someone until it’s maybe too late.

    Cons

    If you’re not with the right FA then beware of retaliation of the Financial Advisor especially if they are a high level. If they bring in revenue you can contact HR about their behavior but nothing will be done because the company wants the money.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They invest in you quiet a bit through training

    Cons

    You have to be a robot and do everything to their complete specifications. Absolutely no room for flexibility. All they want to talk about at every meeting is 'door knocking' which is NOT enjoyable.
