    Avantages

    Opportunities for bonuses if you work at a high-level branch. Firm bonuses. Profit Sharing and RRSP Matching.

    Inconvénients

    No job flexibility or perks for BOAs. Health and dental benefits could be better. The focus of the company is on the Financial Advisors and that is it. No opportunities for advancement. A lot of solitude working in a 2-person office.

    Conseils à la direction

    Focus more on the BOAs who are basically running the branches. Without us, FAs wouldn't be able to do their jobs.

    J'ai travaillé chez Edward Jones à temps plein (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Training, paid licensing, salary, good image with potential employers when you exit. EJ paid me for well over a year at top whack, licensed me and let me walk away into a bank job. Fantastic!

    Inconvénients

    1 - very very few advisors are successful because of prospecting. My experience was overwhelmingly of advisors having been grandfathered business, and then pretending to new fa's that propsecting was how they made it. All successful practices are built on referrals not door to door marketing. It's old fashioned and largely pointless.
    2. Too easy to game the system, no interrogation of your pipeline unless you are on performance measures.
    3. Volunteerism - great in principle, but the people supporting you in the field are amateurs. My level leader used to work in fast food management and his technique was built around motivating teenagers, not high achieving experienced fa's.

    Conseils à la direction

    Business model is outdated, lose the volunteerism or at least train the leaders correctly.

    Avantages

    I started off as a successful financial advisor in the field. After returning from my maternity leave, I accepted an offer at home office as a Senior Recruiter. The management here truly cares to retain top talent and offers opportunities to develop and accelerate your career. I have experience working at one of the big 5 banks, there is definitely a difference in environment and culture- it's one that nurtures growth and limitless possibilities for your career. Edward Jones respects and nurtures the family first principle for its employees and clients. I feel grateful to have found such a client centric firm!

    Inconvénients

    Presence in Canada could be bigger so that more employees can enjoy working at one of the best companies in the financial industry!

    Conseils à la direction

    The firm has done a phenomenal job at being one of the best financial advisory firms for clients in North America. I look forward to where the firm is headed under Penny Pennington's leadership!

    Avantages

    I'm a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones, in Sherwood Park, AB. and have been here four years. There are a few things that make this the best career decision of my time in the industry. The culture is remarkable. Our region is truly like a family. We have a sole focus of serving our clients, to the best of our ability and the support we have from the Firm is exceptional. We are not distracted or influenced by what everyone else is doing. We grow organically and the path we build is our own. This is how we are able to solely focus on our clients and their needs, first. It's fantastic.

    Inconvénients

    The only 'con' is that it is hard work and it takes a serious level of dedication, drive and perseverance.
