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

    Pros

    Great training program for licensing and a good sense of community with lots of help from other advisors

    Cons

    flawed marketing plan, going door to door is no longer effective, no leads whatsoever, territories treated the same although drastically different, you have to sell commission products to meet sales goals but advisory is better for everyone long term.

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

    Pros

    Just making sure you read all the information give to you. The pros are they have a great training and way to look at the business. The issue they have higher fees than many and they have low client interest. Not many want to become clients compared to the other investment advisor companies out there.

    Cons

    The amount you agree to reimburse Edward Jones is $75,000.00. There shall be no reduction in the amount of training costs owed by you in the event your employment is terminated during the first year of service as a financial advisor of Edward Jones. If, within three (3) years after receipt of your can sell date, your employment with Edward Jones is terminated by you or by Edward Jones, you maintain registration of your license with FINRA and accept employment with any entity as either an employee or independent contractor engaged in the sale of securities and/or insurance business, you agree to reimburse Edward Jones
