Edward jones national rankings
Financial-services firm Edward Jones ranked No. 5 on Fortune magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For.” The investment firm also ranked No. 3 on the list for large-sized companies and No. 2 for work-life balance for associates who feel encouraged to balance their work and personal life, making Edward Jones the highest ranking financial firm on Fortune’s list. In an independent study, J.D. Power and Associates also rated the firm the “Highest in Employee Advisor Satisfaction.” No surprise really.
