    I have been working at World Financial Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good opportunity; Good Training, Pure brokerage w/ access to every kind of solution from best of breed companies in Canada, not Captive agents that can only sell Term. Great income + great self development; People genuinely care for families; great bonuses; fantastic positive environment; good culture.

    Cons

    You Need to actually work. No such thing as just add water overnight success. Most people whom complain weren't willing to put the effort in. General training isn't standardized - and can vary. Some offices with unbalance/dominant racial culture can make some feel out of place when they arrive.

    I worked at World Financial Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free Coffee False optimism. Letting go of your state of morality for personal gain. Free Appetizers and making casual friends Reality check

    Cons

    WFG (World Financial Group) is in its pure form, a fancy trap of Phishing scheme and MLM (multi level marketing) that's glittered up by deception, wearing overly tight 3 pieace suits, ties, and shiny leather shoes with no socks on. Prime example of greasy, stuck up, snobby men. Sadly they have sold there souls and human morality to the Devel in order to rip of and misguide a bunch of young adults trying make a living and to grow in a community. Also be aware of those so called "Financial Advisors" they are pretty much savage (Vultures/ bottom of sewage Rats) hunting on financially crippled families that are new commers or vulnerable immigrants that have immigrated to Canada with the hope of a better future for there loved ones and children. I've been there, seen it all, and I can assure you this is a prime example of legal robbery. Beneath the nice wooden desks, leather chairs, tightly fit suits, free coffee, and greedy downtown view..... I've seen some ugly realities. Absolutely discusted by the ugly platform of such a nasty, ugly, haines, swine, and filthy form of robbery that they call "Business" or "Financial Freedom". take my word of advice. Save you Saturday morning meeting with these Bank Puppets. Consider reading a few reviews of these phonny Firms through some legitimate Wbesites. The reality being force fed about this mass corporation is being hidden and funded on lies, mental fear, and over wheliming promises of a better future. You're only a number in the eye of a financial advisor. If that's not enough.... Go check out the overly hyped up presentation they offer "Free of Charge" ;) Soooooo... they can put the fishing hook in you. Believe me....no form of happiness, not freedom come from oversized Corporate Finance that is run on a false marketing & pyrimid scheme. WFG is in fact a form of financial mockery.
