I just wanted to post that I recently (6 months ago) left Edward Jones to pursue a career at another firm.  All I heard from Jones was how bad of a move I was making and how horrible I would be treated at another firm.  6 months into it, I have to say this is the best decision that I have ever made.  I am making more money now and I have access to products that I didn't realize what I was missing out on.  I talked to a friend of mine who has been with Jones for over 3 years now, and he and his boa were celebrating because they had their first ever "Net 10k month".  I just thought "you poor bastard".  I think Jones is a great place to be from, but it's totally Mickey Mouse compared to where I am at now.  I was segment 4 at Edward Jones and had a great experience there.  There are better place to work though in my humble opinion.

Antoher survivor! Congrats for having the guts to run. It will just get better and better the farther you get away from EDJ

Another victory!  One more rep takes off the blindfold and stops drinking the koolaid.  Maybe someday, the world will recognize Jones for what it is...a great deal for Jones and a bad deal for the IR.

Great, glad you made the jump.  We wish you all the success in the world in your new firm.


I had a whole paragraph typed out with a rebuttal for GoldCaddy, one of the newest members in the I hate EDJ club, but I deleted it. 


You're welcome!
