    Pros

    Great training from the best in the industry, can make serious money if you can crack the expat wealth management game.

    Cons

    The number of expats in NCR region has come down, generating a prospect can be challenging but not impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the training, it's fantastic. Top management needs to be more interactive with consultants at ground zero rather than remote control from a different country.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at deVere Group full-time

    Pros

    - Working with hugely successful people across Japan
    - Tokyo office has so much to offer (lots to learn from senior advisors, extensive training etc..)
    - Huge variety of support from both Tokyo office and office worldwide
    - Working in Japan provides lots of opportunities to help people of all demographics across the country

    Cons

    - Tokyo office is very central so accommodation nearby is hard to come by

    I worked at deVere Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, confidence building, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Long hours, poor organisation when organising pay, big variation on competency from manager to manager

    Advice to Management

    A better system needs to be in place for organising pay; myself and many others had issues with being underpaid.
    The venue I worked at could not decide if it wanted to be a 3* hotel or a 5* hotel and failed at both as a result.

    Pros

    You get to learn the industry inside out which is invaluable.

    You will have huge earning potential as long as you're not expecting to be spoon fed like a lot of people do.

    You will learn so many aspects of marketing and sales alongside finance.

    It teaches you the real world of business and how to toughen up.

    You have access to the best investment banks and funds houses in the market.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to get results (longer than they advertise).

    They recruit people who are not in the right mindset to set up their own business (which is essentially what it takes).

    Some of the managers are there purely because they are good sellers rather than being good people managers (not so much in Europe but elsewhere).

    Advice to Management

    Sort the recruitment process out and be more specific with who you bring on-board. Rather than recruiting 100s of uni-grads who (many of which) have been spoon fed their entire lives and don't yet have an understanding of real work.

    Start investing in more into loyal staff and create long-term incentives.

    Try not to be a jack of all trades master of none, I would focus more on the best bits we do and start refining these areas.

    I worked at deVere Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training was good if all you want to be is a sales person and not a proper IFA, Good to travel the world with. Sometimes orphaned clients given to you to help get you started.

    Cons

    Local office and team managers have complete disregard for staff confidentialty and discuss private information about staff throughout the whole office. They actively encourage discussions. No support from managers once in the role. Some consultants openly sell products to clients not suitable for the client but pays them good commission.

    Advice to Management

    don't pass information to office staff that shouldnt be
