    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some branch offices offer a lot of flexibility, but the job really depends on who you work with. You are working with one person and only one person 40 hours a week. If you get along and have a great relationship, it can be a great job. If you don't... If you can stick around, you can be a limited partner. At least 5 years employed. There can be some good income from that. otherwise, your salary will be low and compared to low banking type jobs.

    Cons

    There is no advancement for Branch office administrators. You can be a "senior" Branch office administrator after 3-5 years, but that's only a raise. You will be doing the same job from the day you start to the day you quit. There is no love or respect for BOA's from the home office or the financial advisors. Many FA's treat you like their personal secretary, no one is really sure what the BOA's role is. Make sure you really like the person you interview with before you accept the role. Changing locations is not easy, and there is a stigma that follows you even if it is the FA who is an unreasonable jerk. Recruiting - They want everyone to recruit new FA's. This will be a fire hose type situation and they expect you to be recruiting 24/7 even though you are paid hourly and BOA's do not receive any type of bonus for referring candidates.

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    2-person offices allow you to get to know your Branch Team. We care deeply about the client experience and building life time friends/relationships with our clients. This atmosphere fosters close family-type empathy and caring. Desire is to have clients you'd love to take on vacation with you and it happens. I've made friends for life in my 25+ years here. Every day is a learning experience with no two days the same. Industry is changing constantly which gives room for growing as an individual as well as with your Branch team. For Financial Advisors, you can work your own schedule and make things happen around the balance of family and business and career. Regional activities open doors to serve in the community while supporting each other in all areas of business. Edward Jones attracts the best people in the industry, the cream of the crop. It is a place to learn and grow for anyone who seeks to work hard and make a difference on a daily basis in other's lives.

    Cons

    Because we are mostly 2-person offices, you see both the good and the bad days of individuals. You must learn to give space when needed to your Branch team while respecting their needs as well as your own.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    One of the best support systems I've ever come across which ranges from home office to other branches. They truly make you feel welcomed and like you're part of the family. Great benefits and incentives to not only do better on the job but also incentives to be healthier and lower medical costs.

    Cons

    Over all pay could be higher for all the responsibilities the BOAs incur on a daily basis.
