Financial services firm Edward Jones ranked No. 6 on Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For 2015” list, its 16th consecutive appearance on the list.

Fortune conducted the annual survey in partnership with Great Place to Work. Two-thirds of a company’s survey score is based on the results of the Trust Index Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job satisfaction and camaraderie.

The other third of the scoring is based on the company’s responses to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs.

At Edward Jones, 96 percent said Edward Jones is a great place to work and 94 percent said they have pride in the work they do.

The full list and related stories appeared in the March 9 issue of Fortune and at fortune.com/best-companies.

Edward Jones provides financial services to almost 7 million U.S. and Canadian clients through a network of 14,000-plus advisers, including nine among Rocky Mount, the Battleboro community, Nashville and Tarboro. Its headquarters is in St. Louis.
