    My Wife Tells Me It's The Cleverest Thing I Ever Did!

    Aug 4, 2015 - Manager in Dubai
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    1. Freedom to be as brilliant as you will allow yourself to be 2. Work in a positive environment that helps you fulfil your true potential 3. World Class Ongoing Training 4. Surrounded by great talent - learn from the best 5. Fantastic earnings potential from helping people 6. Have a progressive career that you can be proud of

    Cons

    1. At the start you will typically give more than you receive as you build your profile, knowledge and skill-sets - like anything in life worth having, this career demands time, effort and energy - it typically does not happen over-night 2. Self-Belief - you need this in abundance as you build you career as it will be tested - unfortunately not everyone's self belief is as strong as they may think it is 3. Not knowing where your next client is coming from - depending on your mindset, that is either an incredible challenge or a serious worry 4. Ability to Self Motivate - while people will always help you, the reality is that those who fulfil their potential have the ability to consistently self-motivate and drive themselves forward 5. Can be difficult to adapt for those who have spent all their careers been told what to do and when to do it

    Pros

    Beautiful office overlooking Dubai's WTC. A lot of brilliant financial professionals from all over the world. Good products to sell

    Cons

    Not straightforward about visas for one thing. It was very common for that to be delayed for months. Poor reputation for Acuma and parent company Devere in the U.A.E. Compensation ranges are nowhere near what they claim. Clawbacks were common.
