    "Great Company If You're Willing to Actually Put In The Work"

    5.0
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Diversity & Inclusion
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Associate in Ottawa, ON

    I have been working at World Financial Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company if you're willing to put in the work. It is a simple business, but definitely not an easy business. If you want to do well you are going to have to put in a lot effort and be patient. There is unlimited potential for growth, and you are able to completely control your own time and go at your own pace. You are given the opportunity to create your own business and build it your own way. The environment is super positive, and it forces you to become a better person through self development. Even if it turns out not to be for you, you will leave being a better person than when you started. You will also learn a ton about how to control and manage your own finances as well as helping others with theirs.

    Cons

    Don't expect to make a ton of money right away. It does take time to get your license and you cant make any money until you do that. Once you do get it however it is pretty easy to make a decent amount of money on a part time basis. it is commission and so nothing is guaranteed, but the only way you don't make any money is if you literally don't do anything, which does happen more than it should , and then people use that as an excuse as to why they failed.

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