    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.

    Pros

    I have worked at deVere for the past three years after joining from another company. At first I was extremely nervous as I relocated from Europe to the Middle East and didn't know what to expect, after 10 minutes into my first day all my nerves went as I was greeted and made to feel right at home. Since joining I have enjoyed every moment at deVere and really recommend working here.

    Cons

    I don't have any downsides as I really enjoy working for deVere.

    I worked at deVere Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The ongoing training provided is excellent. Better than most financial advisories.
    - 'Can' earn high commissions.

    Cons

    - 100% commission role.
    - Expected to beg/borrow/steal phone numbers on a continuous basis.
    - Zero job security. Everyday you expect a tap on the shoulder.
    - Very salesy' work environment. Old school in some regards. Not for everyone (or most people).
    - Competition is very high. Cannot trust a soul in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit people with actual finance or sales backgrounds to lower the 95% churn rate of staff.
