    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

    Open management style with a clear desire for you to present ideas and solutions to business problems.
    Above average salary
    Excellent incentives,
    Those whose contribute and work to provide solutions will do very well.

    Cons

    It's a tough business, so bring your A game
    You'll need to be switched on and work in your own time to learn and develop
    You'll never be promoted, you'll need to go prove you can do the job first and then they will give you the credit you deserve.
    Founder is still involved and accessible. Very flat structure.

    I worked at Agora Financial full-time

    Pros

    Work drinks once a month and readiness to send you to the head office in the US.

    Cons

    Amazingly disorganised.

    Promised many things including higher salary after one year - which everyone laughed at when I told them.

    No communication whatsoever meant all aspects of the business were going in different directions.

    The office is dead, almost a tense atmosphere.

    The company have no respect for employees, they will make anybody redundant at any point, no matter how long they've been there, making for an uncomfortable atmosphere.

    HR completely detached from workforce, making no effort to converse or enjoy workplace.

    Management no idea what is going on with staff or how much workload they have, some people work 9-5, others have to stay very late - refusal to employ more.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to each other! Treat each other like you'd like to be treated.

    Employ people with the right credentials.

    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.

    They treat their people better than any company I've ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    I've learnt so much in my role within the one year I've been working here. The amount of training available has helped me progress in my role and expand my knowledge of the business and marketing in general.

    Cons

    You need to be innovative and idea driven in this business - for some, this might seem challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    I have been working at Agora Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When I interviewed for my current position I simply said "I want a job where I will not be doing the same thing everyday as I do not wish to be bored, I want a challenge and variety!". My then interviewer and my current Manager laughed and assured me that I would never be bored in this Company and she was right! It is a fun, creative, ambitious, hardworking and highly supportive environment to work in.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind at present
