They do try to replace colleges FA that leave so that the BOA's continue at the Branch
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee), Stouffville, ONAugust 30, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: job security, can be a very quite atmosphere
I think that Edward Jones is a good company, however, the BOA's job security is not very good.

I was in a branch and the FA quit, they did not replace him and I lost my job.

I am hoping to get into another branch.

The strong customer service training is a valuable take-away from this position. Great satisfaction assisting advisors and branches in transition.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: training opportunities;
Cons: tight daily schedules did not allow for much socializing among employees
Fast-paced environment with tight deadlines and multi-tasking required. Excellent customer service and inclusive training opportunities. Accessible management (open-door) policy and friendly co-worker atmosphere. Required intensive computer-based activities and did not lend itself to a lot of employee interaction. There were some fun theme-based activities – more... throughout the year. – less

Two person office may not be the right model
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee), Salmon Arm, BCOctober 19, 2012
Pros: great basic training and opportunities to do more training, rewards for good work, lots of "team" building
Cons: very few opportunities for advancement, your dispensible, boa's can't travel with advisors on diversification trips
At first was a great place to work, you have to get a balanced relationship with the Advisor you work for. There's nothing that's going to save your butt if the advisor decides to dump you. Not even years of loyalty can save you.

Professional and very rewarding company to work for.
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 4, 2014
Heavy office work. One on one office setting assisting the financial advisor. In charge of all incoming phone calls and client correspondences. Opened accounts, entered transfers, managed all paperwork. Very high speed office work, very steep learning curve, but incredible company to work for. Helping clients manage their finances with more ease is – more... an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling line of work. – less

Good place to work for life/balance; good culture and nice people
Paralegal (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJune 26, 2014
Pros: good people, good culture, great work/life
Cons: so-so compensation, ok benefits, not the best management
Overall it's a good place to work if you have the right leaders. There are opportunities for growth if you take the initiative and they generally support learning and development. Management takes a long time to make decisions and there is a lot of the good ole boy vibe in some divisions. However, the work/life balance is fantastic (in certain areas) – more... and the people are some of the best I've worked with. Compensation is not competitive and the benefits are ok. – less

Sky high attrition rate
Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Roswell, GAJune 19, 2014
Pros: company is like a family
Cons: client acquisition process is good way to get shot
The client acquisition model at EdJ literally involves knocking on doors of strangers and asking then to let you play with their money.

Company pays for Series 7 and Series 66 licensing and pays a salary while you train. They then lock you in for 3 years such that if you get fed up with walking the streets, you must repay them $60,000 or so to cover – more... their costs.

There are some very successful people working there and the company treats you well in general. If you survive for 3 years, you can win anywhere. – less

Edward Jones is a Wonderful Place to Work
Branch Office Administrator (Current Employee), Georgetown, TXJune 9, 2014
Pros: great benefits, paid training each year, quiet atmosphere, easy assistance from home office
Cons: can be lonely on slow days & when fa is out of the office
Edward Jones does a great job of preparing their employees. As an on-call BOA, I was allowed 24 hours of PAID training at three different branches each year.
The hardest part of the job is trying to juggle multiple tasks at the same time while maintaining great customer service. The most enjoyable part is getting to know the clients.
