Overall Reviews at Edward Jones

Branch Administrator | Minnesota | Feb 15, 2020
Do not believe the hype
Extremely poor pay and you spend 90% of your time calling non responsive clients. You are more of a telemarketer. Zero chance of any kind of advancement and pay raise. It is mind numbing and any skills you do have are not utilized. Extremely boring and you will spend most of the time alone while the financial advisor is able to make own hours. Not recommend

Depends on you Financial Advisor (FA)
FA's can be very micromanaging. You also must do what they say no matter how far in the gray area of illegal. Personal commitments are secondary to the business no matter how important. The FA is always in the right no matter the proof you have.
Pros401k, profit sharing
ConsBOA's are a 2nd class citizens

Edward Jones
I've worked in corporate america my entire career. and the culture has certainly changes. Management is far from the work/life balance culture that they talk about.

Office Administrator | Cambridge City, IN | Oct 1, 2019
Productive and Professional
Edward Jones is a very professional and productive company. They care about their clients and work with them to reach their financial goals. I learned more about financial planning and how it works as well as how different managers provide outstanding service for their clients. The most difficult part of the job for me was learning new processes. I enjoyed meeting and getting to know the clients and co-workers in each different office I worked.
ProsFull time positions are best for freebies, part-time is less stressful
Investment Rep Academic Training Leader | St. Louis, MO | Apr 13, 2018
Great place to work
Edward Jones was a great place to be. Everyone was professional and everyone got along. They want honest feedback and you weren't scared to provide it. The only reason why I left was because I could not make a living on their salary.

I was employed through a temporary service to EDJ
EDJ is a great company with many positions, levels, and departments. I was not easy to get interviewed or submitted for open positions or movement within the company.

Flexible scheduling, awesome company to get started
A sound company. Ability to move up in the company, a typical day ranges from many different opportunities. Networking with a plethora of different individuals. The training materials are hard to beat.

Questions And Answers about Edward Jones

Do BOAs receive annual reviews and salary increases?
Asked Feb 14, 2017
Some Financial Advisors hold back on giving your annual review on time. Many do not share any type of bonus with the Branch Office Administrator, so be content with your hourly pay as meager as it is.
Answered Jul 25, 2018
There are reviews and bonuses but feedback is subject to your FAs sole opinion. Pray you get a fair FA to work for.

If you were in charge, what would you do to make Edward Jones a better place to work?
Asked Jan 23, 2017
Most definitely higher pay. I'd rather have a higher hourly wage than to be subject to "maybe" getting a bonus.
Answered Sep 6, 2019
Be more upfront about BOA involvement with investments. The job goes beyond administrative. Pay a fairer wage to BOAs, and be upfront about the standing of the office in terms of production.
