    No financial services background? No problem! The investment adviser has what it calls the financial industry’s “most comprehensive training program,” which deploys a pay-it-forward culture that sees seasoned financials impart their knowledge and wisdom to new hires—even those with no experience in the field. That translates to job security in the long run; Edward Jones’s retention statistics show that when a new financial adviser receives at least $5 million in assets, there’s an 85% chance that adviser will still work for the company in five years. Compensation perks are nice, too: There’s an annual merit-based pay increase, three bonuses per year, a matched 401(k), and the chance to become a limited partner in the firm.
