    Former Employee - Financial Advisor in New Brunswick, NJ

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

    Pros

    A lot of freedom...you are not set to a traditional schedule but you are putting in far more than 40 hours a week Guidance and support are easily available from peers and home office employees Salaried worker for the first four years to help you get by while building your book. Great bonuses and trips

    Cons

    Sales generation is based off door to door if you do not already have existing clients to bring in The culture isn't for everyone, but for those who buy in it can be a great place for them to work

    The starting pay is rather low and the learning curve is extensive.

    Pros

    Penny seems to be moving the company away from the good old boys club. If your an advisor your treated really well and can make unlimited amounts of money.

    Cons

    There is a good old boys club! Full service brokerage is becoming obsolete.
