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

    Pros

    Training was top notch. The firm pays you while you are studying for licensing exams. Some folks in the region seem to genuinely care about one another.

    Cons

    You must be excited about going door-to-door in residential neighborhoods trying to "sell" your services and the firm's services. If you are not passionate about this process, you will struggle. Be prepared for long days with the hope of getting a handful of phone numbers each day (if you're good and lucky enough to catch folks home). Hopefully, of the phone numbers you get, some will answer when you call. Of those that answer, hopefully a few will agree to meet with you. Of those that meet with you, hopefully a few will open accounts and move assets. Then you continue this process for 3-5 years until your book of business is built. Other FAs will tell you that they built their business without door-knocking. It rare, especially at the beginning.

    Former Employee - Financial Advisor 

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time

    Pros

    The people at Edward Jones are fantastic. You will be given an enormous amount of support and encouragement.

    Cons

    You will need every bit of the support you are given in order to succeed. EJ utilizes an out-dated marketing platform that emphasizes door-to-door sales. They believe in this method as the bedrock of their institution. There are better, more efficient and much less humbling ways to raise assets.

    I worked at Edward Jones

    Pros

    Make own schedule, salary while getting certs, well known brand name

    Cons

    Door to door can be tiring, no leads, inadequate sales training, lacking in tech compared to competition, they expect more than half to leave, try to scare you with letter to repay training if you leave or get fired, salary is almost impossible to live on and commission is gutted for 2 yrs, no real support in field. They talk a great game and they give people chances from all industries but they fail to teach you how to sell this service. Your success will heavily depend on your trainer and territory.
