    I have been working at deVere Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Apply if you want to travel a little but you will burn through your savings to relocate and because they place you on a draw. If you apply you will get through, they take everyone since so many people quit so at least it's an easy process. Some people will make commissions, this could earn you an average amount within the first year. These people are in the minority, a number of factors out of your control will effect...

    Cons

    This is neither a graduate course nor a finance role. It is entirely sales. You will dredge through LinkedIn to find prospects then cold call 100 of them a day, everyday. There is no personal development, financial training or knowledge. You advise clients to transfer their UK pensions or save. But there is no thought to suitability for clients hence the trouble the firm has been in around the world. Do a quick search...

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective with hiring. Do not have managers getting a cut from the sales team or the head of the graduate course getting commission from the number of people who complete the training course and go to the field. This encourages a lack of integrity and outright lying from management. State in the graduate job advertisements that it is a sales role. Focus on ethics.

    Pros

    If you hit a few good clients and were able to receive some referrals and continue using that as a business model the returns could be great.

    Cons

    If you got stuck and had a few bad weeks or months it becomes very hard to get out of the red.
