Financial Advisor (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLFebruary 16, 2016
Great company to work for if you're able to have a income that fluctuates with the market. I would love to work for this company at a more stable point in my life.

You are working for the company and not the Financial Adviser but he acts like your boss.
Senior Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Enfield, CTFebruary 13, 2016
The work is a grind. You do not get reviewed by anyone that has done your job. It is a two man office and if the other person is negative or the other person is depressed then the branch work can be awful.
Pros
Flexible. You can leave to pick your kids up from school.
Cons
The FA can be unduely hard, FA can run their office any way they want, the branch administrator is a manager but not compensated for it

An outstanding company to work for
On-Call Branch Office Assistant (Current Employee) –  Danville, CAFebruary 7, 2016
Edward Jones is a wonderful example of a company that puts
their clients first.
Client satisfaction is the highest priority.
Employee's are given extensive training and there are
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

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 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.

About the Job
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) –  Eden, NCJanuary 23, 2016
The job allows you independence and flexibility. It gives you the opportunity to learn how to run a business and market yourself in your community to be a leading financial advisor. The hardest part of the job is the instability of hours and compensation.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Instability

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.

Premier financial advising firm with excellent training and support infrastructure.

One of the finest firms I have ever had the opportunity to work both for and with. Their training is practical and relevant. The culture is supportive and genuine. Putting the client first is not just hyperbole but is practiced and expected at all levels.
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.

Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Excelsior, MNDecember 21, 2015
Assisted the Branch Manager with setting up appointments, entering customer transactions into their computer system. I had no co-workers, answered client calls, maintained brochures.

Did not like working here.

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
