    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at World Financial Group part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - WSB is good platform to learn about financial system/products and WFG is a good distribution system - Clients have a flexibility/ multiple choice to opt their suitable financial products from Class One service providers based on their financial requirements - A company complied to the Federal and Provincial financial regulations - Good alternative to other set of part time job if you are really interested - Potential to earn a decent money even as a part timer - Excellent and long lasting career (part time or full time) for those individual who has a good aspiration /hardworking/patient and helping mentality with high level of ethics

    Cons

    - Not suitable platform for pessimist/negative thinkers - Wrong option for lazy guys - “ Be richer in an overnight” attitude individuals should not explore this opportunity - Not a better alternative for those who don’t want to upgrade their knowledge or hesitant to follow ethical practices - Neither a suitable option for those who want to live in their own comfort zone
