So what's your experience been like at Jones? Like for real. Without the green iv hooked up. 

It's been great.  I'm a big fan of the changes happening and love learning from the vets.  Everyone has been supportive.

Some of my peers have a different opinion but that's probably everywhere.

I started at Jones in 2006/2007. When I actually became an advisor (after all the licensing and shit) and found out they didn't use e-mail, I already knew I had made a mistake.

Text messaging right after...

Welcome HoffHawk...and good luck. It would be fun to troll a 29 year old female advisor who thinks that her firm is empowering...and clearly newer to the industry.

There are few Penny lovers here btw...

Are you serious that Edward Jones didn't have email? Now I understand why everyone laughs at us.

Yes, I think we got it around 2008 or 2009 maybe? I don't recall the exact year.

Which was so weird, because e-mail had been in pretty wide business use since the early/mid 90's. So they were like 15 years late on that one.

EJ...

Advisory was not an acceptable option during my tenure at EDJ...1997-2006. It wasn't until Weddle took over that the firm saw the light...

Remember Bachman...and then Hill...Weddle was a welcomed change at the top back in the day...

Early/mid 90's might be a stretch.  Late 90's, early 00's, okay.

I had no idea. Almost my entire book is Advisory Solutions. I sell it as a hands off option so the client doesn't have to worry. I can't imagine having to call every client each month to sell something to make a commission.

I bet you tell them "somebody smarter than me takes care of that", don't you?

I was using e-mail at work in the early 90's. But yes, not everyone was using it back then, I suppose.

I get it. Most of you think it's cute to insult and demean women. I see why women don't stay here too long which is a shame because some of you are really intelligent and good people in real life who do a lot to help the community but come here to vent and play around while occasionally contributing something great to the forum. None of your insults and snide comments are original. Some forums have a block feature so you don't have to see comments from people on that list. I suggest the administrator add something like that here.
