Advisors treat assistants poorly
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Brandon, MB14 February 2018
I had a malevolent boss who put me down and threatened me and abused me emotionally. He was rude and was never in the office and constantly shamed me for things outside of my control. He was rude to clients too.

Perfect place to grow a practice
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC3 January 2018
If you want to start an investment management practice there is no better place than Edward Jones. Is it hard work? Of course it's hard work! But the perks of success are worth the effort if you can make it through the first 3 or 4 years. The good thing is now they pay a salary for the first four years because they know attrition is highest at this time. What are the perks? Once you get to $12-15M (will take 3-4 years) under management you will make approximately $50k a year. If you can get to this point you will start a snowball effect where your existing clients contribute to accounts and start to refer you business. So within 3 more years you will likely have a 6 figure salary. From there the sky is the limit. Most advisors that succeed with EJ make well over $100,000 and work 40-45 weeks a year. You create your own schedule, even in the early years, so if you have kids it's awesome! They send you on 5 star vacations twice a year if you bring in an achievable amount of assets. Like I said, it's not easy. But if you have the grit and desire, your quality of life after the first several years will be almost unmatched.
Pros
Support, Early salary, Potential for unbelievable quality of life
Cons
Hard work in early years

FINANCIAL ADVISOR (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 November 2017
Door-to-door sales pitch as a financial advisor. If you can't door-knock, you won't success. Extremely supportive but demanding company culture. Someone will always look over your shoulder, but if you can't make the targeted goals, your business won't last either way.

Garbage.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON13 November 2017
If you have to REALLY sell the job to get prospective employees, have ridiculously high turnover of same employees, and have to do the same thing to get and retain clients there is something wrong with your business model.
There's also a reason why self directed discount brokerages are taking over - the general public has been screwed over enough by salespeople claiming to be financially literate.
Obsolete, foul smell like the used car salesmen of days gone by.
Do everyone a favour and stay away from this company and others like it. If you're a client, move your portfolio to either a real independent broker or manage your own money.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, unethical

Perfect for the person who thrives on working independently.
Branch Office (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON7 November 2017
At Edward Jones, you work as part of a team in a 2 person branch office, providing a variety of administrative support tasks to a Financial Advisor.
The culture is relaxed and informal, but professional.
You must enjoy working alone, and possess the initiative and confidence to proceed with tasks independently.
The opportunity is there to be eligible for Branch Office bonuses.

odd culture, weak field leadership
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 October 2017
As a company run by financial advisers with an almost religious reverence to past general partners, it takes some getting used to. Millennials will not fit in unless they like to "do it the way we have always done it".

Hard work as you go door to door in your neighbourhood.
Pros
lots of encouragement during training
Cons
long hours, minimal benefits, old school mentality, leaders
