    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?

      Do not believe favorable reviews of IG

      Pros

      You have a flexible work environment and can sort of set your own hours.

      Cons

      Unethical management culture going back as long as I can remember. Your are told your in your own business but this is not true. You are a contracted employee with very poor benefits that you pay for, pay most of your own expenses, and you can be terminated for very little reason. Managers say that they will give you clients but usually they are given to their friends or favorite consultants. Very poor infrastructure. Client applications are still manually completed and are 4 pages long. You are told that you have access to all investment products. This may be true but you only get paid on IG and Mackenzie specific funds. No compensation other than 100% commission.
