An outstanding company to work for
On-Call Branch Office Assistant (Current Employee) –  Danville, CAFebruary 7, 2016

their clients first.

specific departments at home office that we can call
if we have a question or need help with a task.
Pros
Help with any problems by calling our HO 800 number.
Cons
commute depending on location of office

Very tough but rewarding career.
Investment Representative (Current Employee) –  Normal, ILJanuary 27, 2016
If you are willing and capable of working 70-80 hours/week for 3-5 years, Edward Jones could be a good place to build your career. There is a very strong sense of culture within the company and their training is among the best in the industry.

One area that needs to be addressed significantly is how to compensate those who join the firm mid-career. The expectations are very high and the financial consequences for missing them are severe.
Pros
Freedom to work independently. Unlimited growth potential.
Cons
Relentless rejection from clients, complicated compensation package not conducive to a single-income household.

Financial Advisor (Current Employee) –  Owasso, OKJuly 15, 2016
Manage many accounts, give individual solutions to investors and to people preparing for retirement or college planning. Have to prospect many hours of the week and get used to the word no. Enjoy meeting new people

Good if you can take over assets
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  South Bend, INMay 13, 2016
EJ is going for growth right now. So much so, that it will give more assets to advisors with less experience at other firms than it ever gives to advisors that have been working for them for many years.
Pros
Trips
Cons
Cult like culture

Premier financial advising firm with excellent training and support infrastructure.

Pros
Pay is commensurate with results. Excellent training program. Supportive culture.
Cons
Prod. reqs for trnees are strict & do not account for diff levels of exp regardless of effort.

unfortuntately very bad experience
BRANCH OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) –  Pompton Lakes, NJFebruary 1, 2016
New young FAs need to learn personal, communicational skills and know how to treat their Branch Office Administrators (especially when it's 2-person operation, per branch), instead of calling the Home Office and making complaints behind BOA's back.
Cons
very low salary for investment company

Very small offices and not very high starting pay
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 10, 2016
It can be very isolating being in an office of one assistant and one financial advisor, but the work load is light depending on how many clients the FA has. If you like being alone a lot and not having a lot to do everyday, this might work for you. They start you out making very little money, but the benefits are pretty good.

Financial Advisor Intern
Financial Advisor Intern (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMarch 14, 2016
Very hard business to start out. Many fail but the rewards of owning your own business can be incredible if you make it. The day as an intern is more of an administrative role but you do learn a lot about the investment world.

Great company to start out with. Horrible health insurance but great incentives if achieving your sales goals. Little to no micromanagement but mentorship is available if needed.

Lots of initial training, lots of support fro home office and other branches; very little opportunity for promotion.
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Millburn, NJDecember 2, 2015
Great initial training and support system in place for new hires. Company generally allows branches to work independently but is available for help when necessary via home office help desk. Very little opportunity for promotion or advancement unless you are a financial advisor. Can be a great experience if you have a good rapport/chemistry with your financial advisor/team leader; if not, it will make for a difficult work environment.
Pros
Great training, very friendly colleagues
Cons
Pay for branch office admins, health insurance, lack of promotion
