Why does everyone think that EdJones brokers where "crappy" suits? 


My wife helps me pick out my suits.  They look GREAT on me.


You guys are MORONS!

Does she fix your fruit loops for you, too? They're GREAT! (or is that another cereal?)

I think you guys look great in those green and brown suits you get at the Burlington Coat Factory or S&K Men's Wear

There is nothing wrong a 70's style leasure suit to hand out your business card.

Jun 9, 2006 10:06 am

The employees of Jones may a well wear a 70's style suit, hell thats the year of their communication system. BTW did I mention it cost each EMPLOYEE 1300 PER MONTH.

I don't like to kiss and tell.

Everything at Jones is 1970's. The hotel you stay in for meetings at STL,

the office set up, the way they treat your spouse at Summer Regionals

(arts and craps. are you serious?) the satellite technology. Oh, by the way

whenever they switch to land lines in 2022 the technology cost will, you

guessed it, stay the same. Funny I could buy a full server one year for the

amount I am charged in one month, then get the fastest DSL/CABLE/T1

line for my assistant, myself both at the office and home for less than

$1300/mo.

Wearing suits in some of the towns Jones have offices in might be the kiss of

death. I can't knock them for this because someone in a suit doorknocking

would look like either a religious freak, tax man or a representative from the

local funeral home.

The satellite costs are a farce. Any accounting student would tell you they depreciated that equipment years ago. It is just another method of withholding profit dollars to the IR.


Rich Malone is the biggest joke in the firm. He makes 6M and heads IS. The move to T1 should dramatically reduce the costs but I would guarantee the cost will remain the same or even higher at the branch. Jones is so corrupt, I have a hard time believing that other firms are just as bad or worse.


Growth will never increase with the current structure. The partners are going to have to sell out to someone bigger. Bet on it.

Jun 11, 2006 12:48 pm

My firm uses T1 and cost/broker (incl PC with all the whistles is 800/mo).

where = place


wear=attire on your body.


Go out and knock on some doors.  Better yet, knock your head on the wall. 

Jun 12, 2006 9:27 am

I'm still new here, but this place would be a lot better if it wasn't filled with all the Jones bashing/crap. 

It get's a bit tiresome to see 70% of all threads in each forum be Jones related. 

Oh well, carry on.

You might want to consider purchasing a few non-off-the-rack suits.  Nothing looks more professional than a custom tailored suit.  If you shop around you should be able to get a nice Italian made for under $1000, Chilean made for under $800 and Chinese made for under $80.  (Assuming that you pick them up in <?:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />China yourself)<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

No, I'm not.  I work for a Regional Bank.  I have no problem with Jone's discussion, but every forum here is filled with Jones threads all saying just about the same thing. 

Are there any moderators at this forum?  Just curious.
