    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, fairly good training, great clients

    Cons

    The success and pay of a Branch Office Administrator depends on the success of the Financial Advisor. The FA position could be a revolving door which means as a BOA you do not get ahead nor earn bonuses. The BOA does the majority of the work (that does not involve a license) but the pay does not reflect that. Branches are typically 2 people so if you do not get along you are stuck. FA's may have a hard time meeting goals which means often times they blame lack of success on their BOA.

    I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Starter salary, good initial welcoming snd training in St Louis, paid licensing support and self study from home. Mostly autonomous.

    Cons

    Horrible support after initial training. Managed from input of daily activity so if you are busy and don’t stop for hours every day to input activities you get “those” calls from the home office. Don’t expect any help although everyone offers. No one is paid to help you so they will give advice on the phone when they have a break in schedule. Compensation stinks. The salary for so many, paid offices and such are so expensive and the industry so cut throat that it takes 10s of millions under management to make any decent paycheck.
