While watching Boston Legal the other night I was amused when Denny Crane spoke of the partnership saying "it is the carrot we dangle in front of the associates to keep them working." So what say ye mules at Edward Jones. Are the General Partners still dangling the carrot, or did they grant LP?

Speaking of "Boston Legal", I guess y'all heard that William Shatner sold a kidney stone, on Ebay, for over $20,000. Proceeds to charity.

I like how Denny always says his name  repeatedly  so much that I’ve incorporated into my business.<!–

Obviously, there is alot of fond feelings for Denny Crane. Personally I would rather work for a Denny Crane, than Jim Weddle. However, the question is has Edward Jones granted limited partnership to the hard working associates at Edward Jones, or are they still dangling the elusive carrot, (mind you the carrot is filled with poison that will kill any free thought, and creativity). What say ye?

Denny Crane Rules!  I laughed my ace off when he said that.  Had the same EDJ thought you did.  That line is priceless!

I’m 99% sure they are still dangling it; I think some time in the spring they are going to update the list to include more “lucky” people…

I still love the guy from my old region who’s in his late 50’s and is still chasing the GP carrot.  Like they’re going to make someone a GP for 5yrs. I think Jones is giving that guy the “Schmidt”
