I live in a county w/ a population of rnd 30k & wk for EJ or could wk in a neighboring county of rnd 65k-70k & wk for a UBS or RJames. Which is the best route to go?

Option 2 or 3.

I live in a county with a population of about 30,000 and work for Edward Jones or could work in a neighboring county of around 65,000 to 70,000 and work for UBS or Raymond James.  Which is hte best route to go?


See, boys and girls, it's not that difficult to express yourself as a human being instead of somebody who is sending a telegram where you had to pay by the letter.


Take the first job offer you get--if it's from EJ then work for EJ, if it's from RJ then work for RJ.  If it's from UBS thank your lucky stars and take it in a nanosecond.

Volfan,


With the non-competes that firms require you to sign I would suggest you not "take the first job offer you get".  Do your homework, research the firms, see where you will fit best.  There are substantial differences between the three.

I can not understand why someone would abbreviate the word "work" to wk and "around" for rnd. It actually takes longer to read a document with incorrect abbreviations than one with words spelled out. I am aggravated by people that spew complaints about poor grammar and spelling on here, but I am now one of them. If you don't ask good questions, then you will get more crap like wrote.

Sorry! Maybe one day I will make as much sense as your last sentence.

Watch out!  The Grammar Police are out in full force today.  Kinda like The Three Stooges trying to herd cats.

Edward Jones is the best place to work.... if there are no other companies in a 100 mile radius.

RJ will let you own your clients. Why not go there? Unless you need to be trained on the basics, then go to Jones. I think EJ is a decent deal in a rural area with very low overhead expenses, like rent and staff expenses.

Is that true that RJ lets you own your own clients?  I was not aware of any wirehouse where that was the case.

Jul 7, 2006 2:20 pm

If RJ were a wire, that would certainly be the case.

Jul 8, 2006 1:13 pm

Yes, it is true. I didn't know it was the case on the RJA side (employee) until a recent article outlining that it is a business decision they have made to attract good advisors.


I can't remember which magazine it was...one of those that just starts to show up in the mail...On Wall Street, Ticker, etc.
