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

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.

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.

Long hours, extreme oversight, high expectations
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC5 September 2015
The hardest part of the job is the oversight by home office and peers in your region. Every aspect of the job is tracked and monitored, even if you are exceeding expectations. Edward Jones attracts advisors with the promise of flexibility and training, this does not exist.

An individual who isn't afraid of taken risk, new career and have the passion to bring things to fruition to be successful for all parties involved.
Full Service Broker (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 June 2015
. Varied significantly from cold calling, client meeting, prospect meetings, financial planning, statistical reports of the status of the business and trading of stocks and mutual funds based on client retirement or immediate needs.

. I leaned that based on by prior experience as an VP of Operations and predominately in a corporate office running the business that i was able to step outside. my comfort zone and have the ability to network and make cold calls and even knock on doors to develop new business.

. Management was excellent and they provided all the tools and mentorship to be successful.

. The co-worker where like a cog in wheel whereby they would help you to move forward at any opportunity.

. Without a doubt it was what other ways can I generate new prospects to develop new business. I did what I had to and was successful at it.

. I enjoyed meeting with new clients and after reviewing their holistic needs financially; bringing a plan that would make it happen.
Pros
Clients, Company, Education
Cons
Cold calling

Very inconsistent support once you are in the field.
