Edward Jones Employee Reviews

Rated as one of the 'Best Places to Work' by Forbes Magazine. I like the culture but there are some aspects that I don't like. For instance, some employees are given offices with substantial asset under management (AUM) leading to faster advancement, and Pay.

They provide extensive training and support. Good environment for someone who is a self starter and has a dynamic, quality sales background. You must be able to have a good background on finances and help clients with solutions to their financial situations.

Pros

Dynamic people, bonus incentives

Cons

Life balance is a challenge

They will pay you a salary until you grow your business. Great company trips awarded to those who qualify. Business strategy of door to door prospecting for clients is very difficult and your limited to only seeking clients in your local area.

Can't say enough how great Edward Jones has been to my family and I. They took care of us for 6 years even while leaving multiple times on military leave.

Edward Jones is the best retail wealth manager in the business. It provides the best training for its people and offers a diverse array of investment opportunities for clients. A top notch firm to work for and do business with.

Edward Jones is a solid company that rewards employees for their hard work and initiative.

The management at Edward Jones is actively involved in helping and assisting their employees to be successful.

Cons

2 person office; sometimes difficult to get time off work

As a Branch Office Administrator, you are alone quite a bit so that the Financial Adviser can get customers. Answer phones, file, send out mailers, etc.

Cons

Salary is not very good

Expectations of management were realistic and communicated to us daily. The product line was well balanced and had something in every financial demographic. Great training with regular re training as needed.

This was a great company to work for and I recommend it to other applicants. Good job for people who are looking to have

freedom in their schedule

Enjoyed interacting with the clients. It's more personal when you can sit down and have a conversation with the clients.

this company was a fun plce to work, the only reason i am even typing right now is because indeed is forcing me to lol so this is the review that they get from me, they should ake this optional

I enjoy Edward Jones very much. But, there are no advancement opportunities. I have learned my job and do it very well. But, I'd like to do more and the opportunities just don't exist

Pros

You learn a lot about Finance, Budgeting and Retirement Planning

Cons

No real advancement opportunities

Although my office had many transitions through out the years, my office continued to run smoothly. I was allowed to manage the office and let the Financial Advisor focus on selling, exactly what they are licensed to do. The online training made me an expert on everything and the resources were limitless to get questions answered. Personal relationships with clients were amazing. What a great time I had helping people!

Pros

Fun opportunity to work independently

Cons

Lots of transitions in my office

I really like the culture. I am looking to relocate Otherwise I would continue working for Edward Jones. very friendly

management promotes and guide you to advance.

Working as a BOA at Edward Jones is a great experience. You get to work closely with the clients and the Financial Advisor and learn a lot from both of these entities. The pay is good and steady, it increases based on the work that you do individually, and the longer that you work there, the more benefits and time off you are given.

Worked extensively with the branch office administrator. The advisor was available to help answer questions about the industry and position. Given opportunities each week to improve skills and learn.
