    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at deVere as a consultant is very much like running your own business. If you are prepared to take responsibility for your own destiny and actions you can be rewarded for your efforts. I've been with the company less than a year and am loving my time with the Cape Town working with a great team and getting to meet lots of new clients, it has its ups and downs but you get out what you put in. The company is diversifying into exciting fintech in a big way (such as our new app deVere vault) and the innovation is so impressive, can't wait to see what the future holds.

    Cons

    Its a tough working environment which isn't for everyone, if you aren't prepared to work hard and put yourself out there it won't work as you can't hide behind a salary and poor performance.

    Advice to Management

    Lets expand our products and offering in South Africa, our clients would love access to what else is available in the whole market!

    Pros

    Fast Paced,

    The only reason you would not enjoy or fail with deVere is if you don't want it. Work hard and you will be rewarded!

    Pros

    Pushed to the limit, CEO participates and gives great advice. Long days, but beneficial

    You're training to be a sales man, expect to use the PHONE! That's the best way of gaining business.

    Cons

    None, great fun. Don't believe everything you read.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up,

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

    Pros

    -most intense 3 weeks of your life which will teach you everything you need to know and get you prepared for your field office.
    -have gained invaluable skills which will help me in the long-term regardless of what I decide to do in the future
    -competitive environment which pushes you to be the best you can be
    -Met great grads during this course
    -overall an excellent experience and I am now going to my first choice of location

    Cons

    you're told about everything that's expected from you before you start this role so therefore, I can't think of any negatives as it was exactly how I imagined it to be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the grads

    Pros

    - Challenging and Intense
    - High Rewards for hard work
    - Professional Chartered qualification
    - Training in Malta then an international Career anywhere in the world.
    - The job is marmite, you will either love it or hate it, but if you hate it then its probably because you're not cut out for this type of job, understandable. But if you enjoy it and work hard then you will genuinely flourish and reap the rewards both mentally and financially.

    Cons

    - long working hours
    - intense training
    These may seem like cons, but these are essential to succeed in any profession.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear from the outset regarding retainer wage and discuss locations more during the training in Malta.

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

    Pros

    The training and advice that I was provided in the first 3 weeks has definitely increased my knowledge and confidence. The managers and training leaders are extremely helpful and do not shy from giving you any criticism- as all this did was help me improve.
    You get to come to Malta for 3 weeks to train, and you live with the people who you work with, so it makes it easier.

    Cons

    The day can be quite long, however, it is worth it at the end of the training session as you develop skills and learn a lot.
