    Pros

    Absolutely level playing field, Everyone is given the same chance. This company seeks winners who know how to work and get ahead in life.

    Cons

    If you think that you should get paid for showing up, before you add value, then this is not for you. This company is looking for people who are tired of not getting paid what they are worth and rewards people with an entrepreneurial mindset who always do the right thing for the customer.

    Pros

    Honestly, anyone who knows anything about business and has an entrepreneurial mindset knows that this is a great company. This is a legitimate business. It’s not a cult or a scam. I’ve been working at WFG for 5 years and have seen hundreds of people completely transform their lives. There is huge potential for growth within our company. We are compensation based, not commission. If you don’t know the difference don’t right inaccurate reviews. We helped people transform not only their financial situations but we help them become the best version of themselves. Our company is huge on morals and integrity. We have a leadership development program and on going trainings. We have world-class products and solutions. We don’t train people to be sales driven and pushy, integrity is always first. We ask people to write down their closest family and friends (Hot market) to contact for training purposes. Eventually we all get cold market referrals and that’s when we make money. This is an incredible company with a fanstasic system that’s been proven time and time again. Ed Mylett, Monte Holm, Eric Olsen, Penney Ooi, Raja Dhaliwal, Connie Chen, Guillermo Haro, Rich Thawley.... These are all regular folks who decided to start with our company and did WHATEVER it took to succeed but most importantly, they were coachable and followed the SYSTEM. True entrepreneurs who are now financially independent and continue to help more and more families do the same for themselves. We’ve been recognized by so many successful people. Damond John, Tony Robbins, Tim Storey, Tim Grover...etc. these are people who have a reputation to uphold. Why would they ever do business with a company that isn’t legitimate ? So yes, I highly recommend this company to anyone.

    Cons

    This opportunity isn’t for everyone because not everyone has what it takes to make it. It takes Persistence, Confidence, Determination and lots and lots of Momentum. But most importantly, it takes HEART. You need to LOVE helping and serving families. Without that Passion, no one makes it. Our company believes that a lot of those qualities are already inside of us all, and just need to be brought out which is why we usually give the opportunity to anyone who says they want it. But I believe it should be much more difficult for people to be hired. I know that the system eventually filters out the people who aren’t made to be entrepreneurs but those are the ones who make a bad name for us and leave false and negative reviews.

    Advice to Management

    -I believe it should be more difficult for people to be hired.

    I worked at World Financial Group part-time

    Pros

    Nothing at all, this company does not even deserve 1 star. Stay away from it. They make me pay more and even advised me not to get my 401k which is not right! They don't even disclose that their company is trading <$5 / share forever.

    Cons

    They are not disclosing what will happen to the payout when circumstances happen, they teach the wrong way to invest, make people overpay and this company targets foreigners that does not understand how their policy works.
