    I have been working at deVere Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Intense training with some of the best in the industry
    Earning potential is huge
    Career growth potential is huge
    Meritocracy - The harder you work, the faster you will grow, both personally and within the business

    Cons

    Some smoke and mirrors when it comes to salary

    Advice to Management

    The training is excellent - keep up the good work on that.

    Just be honest with the earnings, it either motivates people or drives them away, better to do that before they commit to training or a location.

    What settled my mind was speaking to people in the field - if they can do it so can we kind of thing. Seeing the people in the locations also helps visualise being there, and means you can ask any questions that might currently be unsettling you.

    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.
