The best place I ever had a job. Edward Jones is a company that cares for the employees and the clients
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – September 16, 2016
Every day I had the opportunity to have a positive impact on multiple generations of one family.
I learned that people often have emotional ties with their assets and do no want to make changes.
Management is best done by example. When I do what is expected of me, coworkers are more apt to do what is expected of them. They will often do even more than what is expected.
My team member in the office was contnually doing more than I expected and went above and beyond to try to get me to succeed.
The hardest part of the job was getting prospects to see the need to create a financial plan. With clients, it was hard for some to put their money to work.
The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to tell clients that they would be able to retire when they wanted, they would not have to reduce their lifestyle, they would not outlive their assets, and they would be able to leave a financial legacy with their family.
Training and support- best in my entire work experience
Dealing with the stress that comes with making quotas was the hardest part
