Edward Jones is a great company. It is well managed and it cares about it's employees. It has a family atmosphere, and the values are in the right place because they really care about doing what's right for clients. They are a high performance company. If you are a financial advisor, you will work hard at what you do but be rewarded and encouraged for your success. This job is not for the faint of heart. It is really hard. If you like sales, you will like it more. If you like people, you will like it more. Be ready to learn a lot - investments, life insurance, annuities, regulations. You will do well if you like being your own boss and being a local business person in your community, but you are also willing to follow the rules of a larger organization. This job will stretch you. You will grow as a person. One drawback is it's hard to move, so make sure you really want to spend your career where you establish your office. Overall, I think Edward Jones is a great company. They demand a lot. In return, they give a lot.
