    I worked at Agora Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers, generally young office, fun events (to make up for all the shortcomings)

    Cons

    Pay too low,
    Management cares only about those who are bringing in money, management throughout is corrupt, the office is like a high school (full of drama and gossip), favoritism runs rampant, it’s clear money>employee needs>actual customer service. Morally corrupt company and management. Absolutely NO real communication between management and employees. Claim there are lots of advancement opportunities but those are mostly false promises. Pay is way too low for what you have to do there (get treated like garbage unless you are raking in the big bucks).

    Advice to Management

    Actually act like you value your employees, rather than just seeing dollar signs. Focus on good customer service, not whatever will allow you to scam the most customers out of the most money.

    I worked at Agora Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Glassdoor allows these fake reviews. However if you check google reviews of the baltimore area you will see they have a 1.7 rating. If you check Better Business Bureau they have a whopping 65 NEGATIVE REVIEWS and only 5 positive guys..
    OH WAIT THERES MORE... there are a jaw dropping 233 Complaints filed to BBB about this company!

    Cons

    Here my words, stay away from this con company. Their turnover rate is insane.. you will work in one place for 3 months then out of nowhere work in a whole different location. BTW it doesnt matter what job you get! they will make you do things you didnt apply for. If you want an unorthodox con company this is the place for you. PS minorities stay away.. If you want a life like one in the book invisible man then this is for you.

    Advice to Management

    Build a reputable business. How sustainable do you think this business will be when every customer calls you out as a scam? You can put make up on pig with your marketing but its still a gd pig!

    Pros

    Fast paced working environment that isn't micromanaged but yet has great expectations. Work hard play it a great motto for this company.

    Cons

    Long hours will sometimes be needed but I don't find that to be an issue, again work hard play hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on.
