I've never written to this forum before but have read the messages for awhile and finally decided to say something.
It seems like there are many people that bash Edward Jones because they are no longer there. Many of you would have never been given the chance to be in this industry if it weren't for them giving you the training you received.
I think many of you can't accept the fact that you made a mistake leaving so you try to justify it to yourself by trying to convince others that Edward Jones is some how an inferior company. I am a guy that spent my first 12 years in the industry with AGE and Indy and have been a Jones for 7 years now and the only regret I have is that I didn't do it sooner. I work less, make more, have great benefits, a BOA that I love, and take two fantastic trips a year. I could not be happier than I am now. I know some of you will try to prove I am wrong and how much better you have it wherever you are but I've been there and know for a fact that Edward Jones is my last stop until I retire.
For those of you that feel different, that's fine but I don't make a constant effort to discredit who you work for, so let it go and let's use this forum for the good that it could be.
