    I have been working at Investors Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have always been fair to the Consultants despite many changes going on in the industry. Training is top notch and ongoing. You earn more independence over time by doing a great job.

    Cons

    It is a major commitment to become an Investors Group Consultant. That is not a "con" to me because I am engaged and doing well. For those who are just looking for a "job" and a "paycheque" look elsewhere. If you're looking for something that you can really get into and make your long term profession then this is a potential fit.

    Advice to Management

    90% of recent changes are positive. Keep it that way. Keep the best elements of the culture and root out those things that are not working.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Investors Group.

    Interview

    After a friend passed along my resume I got a call to have an interview for an associate consultant position for investors group in Burnaby. Once the interview began the recruiter told me that she decided she did not want to interview me for the original position, but instead she would interview me for an office assistant internship. After three summers working in various finance internships, a finance degree from UBC, and investment banking experience I was disappointed to have spent an hour bussing to hear that she wanted me to work in a low-level job, however, we continued on with the interview.

    She proceeded to ask a serious of questions that were in no way related to the job and took notes on my answers (she took notes on my parent's job and background). I am fortunate to be a university student whose parents pay for my education, however, I do not understand how asking my parent's job title and my financial situation was relevant to the job.

    The office admin/recruiter was very unprofessional with the handling of the process, I am thankful that I have other opportunities and do not have to accept the sales pitch she tried on me.
