Yeah its great to work for as long as you are handed a book that somebody else busted their a#s for. Better yet, if your a GP.....complete BS!

May 11, 2006 12:42 pm

EXACTLY!


To, "WORK FOR."  Try working for yourself and you won't ever have to worry about who tops which list!

Its raining in my town today, I wonder if the Jones systems have that stupid circle with a picture of a sattelite and a cross running through it. $1300 hundred a month for that state of the art technlogy.

Doesn't say much about Ohio or OK, does it. BTW, do the people who live there know they have a choice?

Its should be It's (It is). Satellite is the correct spelling. It really comes down to the IR, doesn't it?

May 11, 2006 12:56 pm

Butkus...  We don't call them "IR's" in the real world. 

May 11, 2006 12:56 pm

All those local Ohio chamber memberships are really paying off!

Does Jones revenue share with the weather channel? they must because its the only company that has to look at the weather forecast to see if they can put in an order.

Sorry, Registered Representative. I actually thought of this when posting, but didn't think anyone would bother with such a triviality.

May 11, 2006 1:17 pm

ButtKiss, you just keep setting yourself up fo abuse.  We are surprised that you bothered with such trivial "awards".

The compliance dept went so far as to tell as what analogies are appropriate when discussing rev sharing.


The grocery store analogy, i.e. buying shelf space (or mindshare) they felt was not accurate because " the grocer doesn't have a duty to make a suitable recommendation for their customers. They merely stock the shelves and allow the shopper to make their own decisions as to what to buy. We have a duty of care to our customers and must have reasonable grounds for believing that any recommendations we make are suitable for the individual customer."


The grocery store analogy is probably the most appropriate. Levels of proifit as a result of the sheer number of IR's. 88M in other revenue. Anyone care to guess where it came from.


The double speak is incredible. This is just one example.

Well as long as the COC says so it must be great to work there.


May 11, 2006 2:13 pm

Seriously?  Read the other posts on this (there are many), Butkus.  No one cares.  I frankly enjoy the Jones guys that sit back, put their head down, do their business and get on with life and not care who thinks what (like noggin and a few others on here).  All the rest of you can go back to your kool-aid swilling circle **** and sing your praises to the wonderful GPs for building such a great company and THE BEST SALES FORCE IN THE GALAXY!!!!!!!!!

I think it's great to be proud of who you work for.  It really is.  At the end of the day, it's a very isolated survey and not very subjective.  Of course most people will rate their firm as very strong if they're working for them.  If not, they'd be across the street. 


Look at some of the actual industry publications and who ranks where.  That is much more insightful than this JD Powers and local Dept of Commerce stuff.

successroom1 - It's more than just bad weather in your town, what about when the weather was bad in St Louis? One minute you'd be working & then the next you are staring at the black & green brick wall, watching the counter at the bottom of the screen.

Devoted...were you there when the satellite burnt up?

May 11, 2006 4:16 pm

Wasn't that Haley's comet that hit the satellite?
