    Edward Jones is a great company, but the two person office setting can create problems.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time

    Pros

    Training, co-workers bend over backwards to help out new advisors.

    Cons

    Build client base by going door-to-door. First performance benchmark is at four months. If not met, termination of employment is a real possibility. 14 hours days (10 on weekend) expected of new advisors. Selling front-end loaded mutual funds (5.75%) difficult when many superior no-load funds are available.
