    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Mistrust with Regional Director

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      unlimited potential to grow your book of business

      Cons

      Old boys club vibe, inappropriate behaviour in the office ("successful women belong on their back not the boardroom" ) Company events were booze centred which brought uncomfortable encounters for some women. This wasn't the culture in all offices but there was definitely a need for more inclusive diverse environment.

      Not a promising career like they hype up

      Sep 22, 2021 - Financial Advisor/Mutual Funds Representative in Anjou, QC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Fun work environment, flex hours.

      Cons

      Earning potential is hard, only a very small percentage of the advisors they hire actually make it into a career, this job is not for everyone, requires a lot of prospecting and a certain personality type. It set me back 2 years in my career when I could've been working at another company and moving up there. Rather, I wasn't even making enough to cover my bills and it drained the amount of savings I had at the time to support myself. They do say that it is like a business and you should expect to invest in your business before you start seeing results - wish I didn't.
