Registered Representative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 August 2017
The training is excellent. Back office and corporate support is extra-ordinary. Help is just a phone call away.
Very conservative firm policy and sticks to a proven way of doing business

Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB17 July 2017
I worked as a BOA for this company for 5 years. As an Administrator it was a decent enough job, easy hours, ok benefits and easy to maintain a social life.
The pay is not in line with the amount of work duties you may have and don't let them fool you about bonuses or advancement as it's all based on your FA. You won't qualify for a thing if they decide you don't deserve it or they dislike you. There have been many instances where the FA has gotten away with harassment and verbal abuses towards their BOA and unless you get the labor board involved, nothing will happen.

As the saying goes: BOA's cost money, FA's make money.

If you luck out and get a good person to work in office with, you'll be rewarded and be apart of a Team which makes it a nice place to work for. Just know that you have no job security as it's one FA and one BOA to office and if your FA doesn't meet all the extremely high and unreasonable requirements, you may be out of a job. When I was let go due to the loss of my FA, the Regional Leader of the Northern Alberta Region did not even call me to see if I was ok or offer any support.
Pros
Monday to Friday with no weekend shifts, great for family life
Cons
Terrible pay and no accountability for the FA's when it comes to the treatments of their BOA's

high pressure
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 June 2017
It was a very results-driven atmosphere, with high pressure to hit the numbers every month. Management varied through the year, with different styles displayed
and their Human Resources Dep. are the worst when it comes to resolving conflicts. boo
Pros
none
Cons
stone-age technology and marketing techniques

Leader, Training (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 June 2017
great people work here and they have a good focus on the advisors. some of their methods are really old but it seems to work for them. there is a separation of advisors from the head office.

Not A Company I Would Recommend
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Saskatchewan16 May 2017
During the screening process, expect to evaluated by an archaic and outdated automated system. Expect to be pressured into doing and saying whatever it takes to gain new clients or you can expect your job security to be nil. It's cold calling and portraying yourself as more than you are. Edward Jones doesn't want financial advisors, they want door to door carpet salesmen with degrees, that they can pay less than the degree is worth.
Pros
Performance incentives
Cons
Long hours, really bad pay and a company that feels ethically challenged.

Great place to build a small business/professional financial practice
FINANCIAL ADVISOR (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 May 2017
The best I can say about Edward Jones is its client-centric culture and advisor-focused team environment. It provides advisors with great technical support to serve clients well. At the same time, advisors have extensive autonomy as to how he or she would like to build the practice in the branch office.
Pros
Individual Branch Office and Client-centric philosophy
Cons
Long hours of work in the initial three to five years

Great in Career Development; Bad in Work/Life Balance
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 April 2017
You are promised by the senior management to become a superstar in your advisory services career due to one main cause - you have to be able to work extremely long hours in the beginning. I would not mind long working hours if I don't have my 3 years old. When you don't mind long working hours, it is the right place to burn your time for a rewarding career.
Pros
Great place to learn
Cons
Long hours

Very tough environment to work in.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, ON2 April 2017
High pressured position with continuing education required. If you don't pass the required education your job is eliminated immediately.
You work 7 days a week and are expected to make a minimum of 25 follow up cold calls per day as well as look after your client appointments. You are expected to do your courses while you run your branch. Make sure you know what your a getting into before you leave a current employer. There is no work life balance. This company has absolutely No empathy for their employees.
Pros

Cons
Poor work life balance

Administration Assistant (Former Employee) –  Spruce Grove, AB28 February 2017
I worked for an advisor and senior BOA for 6 months and hated it, the senior BOA would not train me and told me to do online tutorials.... kind of hard when the customer is right in front of you and I have no idea how to process his request.

The pay was horrible and the bonus was very misleading.

I don not recommend working for this company!
Pros
Nothing
Cons
no training, low pay, long days.

Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 October 2016
is a great place to work - apart from your day-to-day tasks you can engage in different groups and projects. It never gets boring. The work you do is rewarding - not only because " but also because management supports you and your career goals and there is also a bonus program in place.

Branch Office Administrator
Branch Office Administrator (Current Employee) –  Calgary AB22 August 2016
The company is made up of (mostly) 2 person offices - an advisor and an administrator. The advisor is the "franchise owner" and the company is "beautifully designed" to favour the advisor over an administrator in all situations.

If you get a great advisor, you will be able to work in a fantastic environment, and feel valued in your role. If you get a bad advisor, your job is in jeopardy at all times, as you can be let go due to any reason the advisor makes up. There is not many opportunities to transfer, as there must be an opening with another advisor to do so. (Read: little job security)

The pay is INCREDIBLY low! Especially for the amount of work that is involved with this administrator position. However, in most cases there is a great deal of personal flexibility, as a trade off.
Cons
Unstable conditions, very low pay, may often work alone for extended periods of time

Senior Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 March 2016
Industry changes and adaptation to economic difficulties put the firm out of flavour. These struggles of poor leadership flow through the company channels. Recent high turnover and some bad leadership choices have set the company back. Great place for competitors to head hunt some quality talent.
