FROM THE COMPANY : People like coming to work at Edward Jones. Why? We are partnership centered. Owners have a different attitude than employees. As a firm owned by associates, we are all in this together. There are no competing interests because everyone puts clients first. Veterans train and mentor less-experienced financial advisers to open new branches nearby. As partners, we know that is good for all of us. We are family friendly. The flexibility to accommodate family matters is built into our two-person branches. Financial advisers open a convenient branch location and set hours for that branch. We are caring. We take care of each other in tough times, whether it is a local disaster, a cancer diagnosis or a family crisis. Caring is part of our culture and leaders are authorized to do the right thing to help associates navigate personal difficulties, whether that means extra time off, special pay arrangements, a loan, a health-benefits exception or preventative programs to head off a crisis.

FROM THE EMPLOYEES :

• “I am always learning and the tools to do that and help me get through the day are excellent. Knowing the home office is always there makes it possible for me to be confident in doing my job.”

• “I truly feel like my input matters here. My job has also given me the capability to plan for my future as I help others plan for theirs. Because I work here, I have started saving for my kid’s education and my retirement. I did not ever think about these things in the past. They also gave me 16 weeks off, 100 percent paid when I had my baby, which is a precious time I got to spend at home and I will never forget it!”
