Featured Review

Current Employee - VP-Technology

I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great environment, respectful people, good technical challenges, many growth opportunities

Cons

Some application/technologies are old, tech debt can be overwhelming

Current Employee - Financial Advisor

I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Independent IIROC regulated firm means that Financial Advisors can buy the whole universe of Stocks/Bonds/ETF’s/Mutual Funds for clients.

Cons

Edward Jones doesn’t have a banking division that can feed prospective clients to Financials Advisors. FA’s must build the business themselves

Advice to Management

Stay a private partnership and keep the focus on clients rather than maximizing profits at all costs.
