Financial-services firm Edward Jones was ranked No. 1 on the People's Picks: 20 Great Workplaces in Financial Services list by the workplace review web site, Great Rated!, according to Kelsie West in Mid Coast Community.

The ranking comes from an anonymous survey of Edward Jones associates and was administered by the workplace culture experts at Great Place to Work, which produces the annual FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work for list. In 2014, Edward Jones ranked No. 4 on the best companies list, where it has appeared for the last 15 years.
