    I have been working at deVere Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    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

    Good opportunity to meet right people and network. work independently and with coordinator.

    Cons

    Company doesnt pay for fuel, transport. Yes you pay anything and everything from pocket. your working hard and devere takes your cut.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to look after employees and see what better can be done than being greedy and not spending any single dime for employee satisfaction. Needs investment into lead sourcing as thats key which deVere lacks on

    I have been working at deVere Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will immediately be given a chance to make an impact and get directly involved with the business.
    During the week other business representatives come in and give presentations which is very useful for learning and development. Also there are in house training sessions on both products and CISI.
    Occasionally have other senior managers pass through the office to give further advice / insight, also good for development.
    Management are professional and understanding, but they do have expectations and you are expected to hit minimum standards.
    If you are prepared to put the work in, the financial rewards can be substantial.

    Cons

    Have to be prepared to put in the hours. Getting things started takes a while and you must have the patience and drive to carry through.
    Be prepared to have homework! Aside from office hours you are expected to continue your own development at home (CISI training etc.)
    Geneva can be difficult to get set up, so come prepared with an idea of how things work (with regards to accommodation etc.), as you will be very busy and may find it difficult to find time.

    Advice to Management

    Office environment is good. Balance between team cohesion and the serious nature of the business.
    Advice would be to carry on!

    Pros

    Learn financial knowledge from some of the best in the business.
    Quickly learn what it takes to succeed, which should not be undervalued.

    Cons

    For the right person deVere has no negatives. However, not everyone can be successful - and as such not everyone is right for this company.
    deVere will help you achieve your goals if you are good enough through a process. You need to trust the process to get to your goals, even if you don't understand the process. You only begin to understand the process once you have reached the next level and look back at how it has changed you.

    Pros

    Focused bosses, a direct line of self/career improvement. Harder you work the more rewards you receive, constant training and motivation. Massive earning potential.

    Cons

    The only cons there can be are for people unwilling to work hard, without working hard you will not succeed in this company or any other.

    Of course with all jobs there are the hard parts, like finding clients and long hours, but if you stick at the job you will find a career!

    Pros

    Intense training with some of the best in the industry
    Earning potential is huge
    Career growth potential is huge
    Meritocracy - The harder you work, the faster you will grow, both personally and within the business

    Cons

    Some smoke and mirrors when it comes to salary

    Advice to Management

    The training is excellent - keep up the good work on that.

    Just be honest with the earnings, it either motivates people or drives them away, better to do that before they commit to training or a location.

    What settled my mind was speaking to people in the field - if they can do it so can we kind of thing. Seeing the people in the locations also helps visualise being there, and means you can ask any questions that might currently be unsettling you.
