Trusted and well established financial service provider
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Saint Joseph MOApril 29, 2015
Pros: Benefits such as paid vacation, sick leave, 401K
Cons: Only one co-worker and on slow days having no interaction with anyone else
Work pace varied at Edward Jones. I enjoyed the busy days much more than the slow days. I learned how to multi task and prioritize projects. I honed my already stellar customer service skills. It was a two person office, therefore I only had one co-worker. The hardest part of the job was dealing with a personality clash I had with my transplanted co-worker. The most enjoyable part of the job was discovering services that highly benefitted the clients and getting them set up for them. Really making a difference in their lives.

Large company and room for advancement.
Operations Specialist (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOApril 28, 2015
Pros: Large company, room for advancement
Cons: Noisy department, stressful environment.
Worked with an Applix system computer, entering data to register Letters of Authorization from Power of Attorney forms on the system. Took phone calls from branch offices for registrations of physical stock certificates and entered on systems to get them issued. I worked in a large department that was very noisy and at times it was difficult to concentrate. I enjoyed working with many co-workers and had a great relationship with my immediate supervisor.

Quality Financial services Firm
Senior Network Analyst (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOApril 21, 2015
Pros: work-life balance
Cons: slow, conservative pace of work in technology
For a financial services company, this is an excellent place to work, with an emphasis on work-life balance and individual responsibility. There is little to no micro-management, and they allow the individual to make a contribution. Highly conservative, perhaps to a fault when it comes to technology, they are consistent in their approach across the firm.

Good Company but lacking benefits
Operations (Current Employee), Tempe ArizonaApril 15, 2015
Pay is lower than other similar jobs around town. Same job I have 22 miles away at another financial firm has a $6500 starting pay difference.

Firm has profit sharing bonuses but still does not bridge the gap of pay. Not really a bonus, just an addition to your base salary.

No maternity leave for my husband who works here as well.

$500 401k match only.

Strict dress code policy!

Firm has a solid culture and people will generally do what is right.

I worked in a wonderful office with a terrific enviroment
Senior Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee), Williston, NDApril 14, 2015
Pros: flexiable hours, good back office support
Cons: being part time no beniftis
Edward Jones taught me how important it is to provide excellent customer service and how in the long run people remember it and how you went the extra mile for them.
Was the fist job I could say I loved to go to every day.
Paying close attention to detail, for you were dealing with financial situations,and buying and selling of mutual funds/stocks
Hardest part of the job was at times certain things had to be bought or sold before the market closed , verify time sensitive
I worked at my first Edward Jones office for 3 years and I enjoyed getting to know all of the clients and them remembering me
I only worked part time at this office

Job is about connections
Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Chippewa Falls, WIMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Fun working with people.
Cons: Success is based on who you know/luck.
Very difficult to get yourself established. The company starts with two different tracts...you start with an established book, called Goodknight...or...you start from zero. HUGE difference in likelihood of success. Know that going into it. If you have a large and financially strong social structure, odds are vastly improved.
