Good place to work for life/balance; good culture and nice people
Paralegal (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJune 26, 2014
Pros: good people, good culture, great work/life
Cons: so-so compensation, ok benefits, not the best management
Overall it's a good place to work if you have the right leaders. There are opportunities for growth if you take the initiative and they generally support learning and development. Management takes a long time to make decisions and there is a lot of the good ole boy vibe in some divisions. However, the work/life balance is fantastic (in certain areas) – more... and the people are some of the best I've worked with. Compensation is not competitive and the benefits are ok. – less

Sky high attrition rate
Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Roswell, GAJune 19, 2014
Pros: company is like a family
Cons: client acquisition process is good way to get shot
The client acquisition model at EdJ literally involves knocking on doors of strangers and asking then to let you play with their money.

Company pays for Series 7 and Series 66 licensing and pays a salary while you train. They then lock you in for 3 years such that if you get fed up with walking the streets, you must repay them $60,000 or so to cover – more... their costs.

There are some very successful people working there and the company treats you well in general. If you survive for 3 years, you can win anywhere. – less

Great place to work
Sr. Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee), Odessa, TXJune 18, 2014
Pros: friendly, personal relationships
I always had something new to learn, and dealt with customers that became family. My boss was very giving for personal time and growth, he even let me take a bible study class once a week for three years.

Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Hilo, HIJune 10, 2014
Edward Jones is a great company to work for. Great culture and great support. However, you do need to learn how to like prospect clients by going door-to-door

Edward Jones is a Wonderful Place to Work
Branch Office Administrator (Current Employee), Georgetown, TXJune 9, 2014
Pros: great benefits, paid training each year, quiet atmosphere, easy assistance from home office
Cons: can be lonely on slow days & when fa is out of the office
Edward Jones does a great job of preparing their employees. As an on-call BOA, I was allowed 24 hours of PAID training at three different branches each year.
The hardest part of the job is trying to juggle multiple tasks at the same time while maintaining great customer service. The most enjoyable part is getting to know the clients.

Work directly for a Financial Advisor in a small branch office setting. Handle all client appointments and Financial Advisor's calendar
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOMay 30, 2014
Pros: was very close to home
Cons: no recourse if you have a problem with your financial advisor.
It's a large company with good benefits, but some Financial Advisors do not treat their Branch Office Administrators as a team member even though the Home Office promotes a team atmosphere within the branch. When it comes down to handling any branch problem, Home Office is always going to back the Financial Advisor and not the Branch Office Administrator – more... because they are viewed as the ones making the money. – less

Great training, great people, great products
Financial Advisor (Trainee) (Current Employee), Louisville, COMay 18, 2014
Pros: training, peers, products
Cons: prospecting methods
Edward Jones is a great company that only hires the best people. The training program is a little long, but it is wonderful. The prospecting method (door knocking in neighborhoods and businesses) is painful and out-dated. If you can get past door knocking (which lasts an average of 3 years for 6 days per week), this is a great opportunity.

Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAMay 3, 2014
Good company to work for.
Set own hours.
Report to no one.
Fellow FAs are supportive and helpful.
Prospecting door to door is tough. Getting paid once a month is tough.
Freedom with setting own schedule and not having to report to anyone is great.

Edward Jones Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Port Saint Lucie, FLApril 28, 2014
Pros: great company
Cons: industry is a meat grinder
The company ethics and morals are outstanding! I learned allot from my experience and wish I could have stayed there. Sadly the financial industry is extremely difficult and merciless by its nature.
