Elmo's World?

How long were you with "the Cult" and where did you go?

Mar 6, 2007 11:14 am

Good for you.  Hope your transition goes well.

oh, Can you tell us why they win those Customer Satisfaction and Branding surveys?  I just can't figure that out because all of the brokers hate them so much. 


How do they pull off the favorable results.

I thought the same thing.

Sorry I have not posted back, I have been to busy Transfering clients. 


I am now Indy and was with the "cult" for 6 years.


As far as the satisfaction surveys, well when the jones propaganda team (Home Office GP's/underlings, and regional leaders) has e-mail/phone call session to everyone to make sure we respond to those surveys so we "can be the best company out there", They are bound to get all the Koolaid conosuers to take part.


As for the Elmo thing, well my wife always told me I could not sing and it must show through even when I type it out.  Hopefully it was less painful on your ears though.

Don't apologize....get off these boards and fill out those ACAT forms!!!


(then come back in a month or two when the dust has settled and let us know how everything went...)


Congratulations on your independence...it's kind of like the army...the toughest job you'll ever love...


...and BTW, the Elmo thing took me a few minutes to grasp, but when I did, it brought back memories of singing that $^%#!%$^&#@ song with my daughter when she was little...

We probably passed each other in the halls at KYC and Eval/Grad (late 2001).


Congratulations on the move, good luck.

Six years.. My money says, "He saw the light".

jusboughtacaddy,


     Your posts say a lot about you and a lot about the Jones cult, I mean culture.  They teach you at Jones that noone in their right mind would ever want to leave Jones, so if someone leaves they were probably fired or put on goals or decided that they just couldn't survive in the industry.  I think you need to look at how many folks here were successful at Jones, have left Jones, and are even more successful now.  Get over the fact that not everyone likes Jones, nor do they want to spend their entire career at Jones just because they started there.  Maybe one day soon, you'll see the light.

freefromjones, did the fire you or put you on goals?  were you  ever profitable?

Mar 21, 2007 2:36 pm

caddy paddy, neither...just got tired of seeing folks that were the golden boys/girls in the region take 7-10 years to net 100k.  I've been gone 6 months aand have netted 100k.  Buddy of mine won a trip for doing the same production at Jones (net 40k)  I guess that trip cost him 60K.  I hope he enjoys Hawaii a whole lot.

caddy,


I highly doubt that a real partner at Jones would be posting on this forum at work.  I know how important it is that you really work during market hours and how the GPs tell you if you want to make more money just increase your production.  You'd better stop posting and start selling some more 40 year, 3 net bonds.  I wouldn't want you to get in trouble for not meeting your quota.

Mar 21, 2007 4:29 pm

took me 2 years to get to 100k net.  maid partner in 3 years.  was on my lunch break.  i look around my region, and the ones that left were grossing 10k and stuck in seg 3.  did you even make it to seg 3?  probably not.  maybe you got fired for sleeping with your boa???

I can, however, believe that a real partner at Jones has the abysmal spelling and grammar skills evidenced by caddy.

looney, you probably didnt make it out of seg 2...
