Each branch has a Branch office Administrator and a Financial Advisor that work together to service clients. The home office assists as needed. The Branch Office Administrator's (BOA) role is to provide office efficiency and support to the Financial Advisor, helping the FA to run their business successfully. It is a team effort and the Firm is sufficient in providing training, meetings, and guidance to aid in a successful, comfortable environment.
I enjoy working in an office setting, with only one other co-worker, rather than with a large group of co-workers. Edward Jones provides decent benefits, although the deductible is high. They offer a 4 month maternity leave, which is practically unheard of.
