I have been working at World Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)
I love the culture of this company. Help one another achieve their goals at the same time pushing for financial education. If you want to believe in something, believe in this.
If you aren't willing to work hard, you won't get far.
Advice to Management
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at World Financial Group (Irvine, CA) in June 2017.
Someone called me about Aegon opening new offices in in the area and that they're looking for financial analysts, marketing analysts and the like. That they're building up a whole office and are looking for people.
I went in for an interview. The first tell that something was fishy was when the door read World Financial Group instead of Aegon. I immediately googled it, and then just sighed when I saw "MLM" and "scam" popping up everywhere. I was pretty pissed but decided to listen to the recruiter because why not. The second tell was that a guy just came up to me and started talking about how the recruiter I'm going to speak with is such a great mentor, and that he envies me (heh), that I was given the honor of speaking with this dude.
Then out came our guy. He was a great con artist, talking about nothing for ten minutes and using grandiose terms about his work, referring to other great financial companies and such. Then he asked me what I was looking for in a job. I told him that I was an analyst, and that I was looking for opportunities in numbers and data. He talked about advisory, and asked me if I wanted to be an advisor. I reiterated that I wanted to be an analyst, and didn't care for advisory. Then he talked a little more and asked me again if advisory interested me and that's when I said that I think the interview is over.
Such a waste of time. I can only hope that they don't manage to influence too many people. Fun fact: Less than 10% of people working in or for MLMs actually break even or make money. Do anything else but stay away from MLMs.
