    Cons

    Along the way there's always sore losers who don't know the meaning of hard work, and are comfortable at being uncomfortable so they go on "GOOGLE " and write garbage about WFG! In fact it's themselves and their narrow vision they should be rating for not succeeding with WFG. Cheers☺

    I have been working at World Financial Group part-time

    Pros

    A lot of personal development

    Cons

    -They tell you if you want to become successful in this business you need to ignore your friends who aren't 100% supportive.
    -NO TRAINING on the financial end of things, the support for training isn't there.
    -You have training twice a week, they concentrate on personal development and the company. Its the same almost all the time.

    I worked at World Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked my butt off for 2.5 - 3 years, some of it part time, some of it full time. In the beginning of your career, it all comes down to your leadership, whether or not your leadership is good however, it is still a sink of swim deal. After getting my promotion to Senior Marketing Director, at the time I had 2 offices, and about to open the third (Toronto area). Good to money to make, but you have to work your butt off.

    Cons

    The bottom line is, WFG is a multi-level company, any way you put it.. from compensation, to culture, to company events... every piece of it is MLM. So if you're willing to sell your soul, and "become WFG" eat, drink, sleep, breathe WFG... you will probably become successful... at the cost of many relationships. Otherwise, you probably won't go too far, and will probably quit after realizing that you have no life outside of WFG.

    Advice to Management

    Canada's head office is a hoax. They're just a bunch of employees paid and fully run by the field activity of the MLM army. They simply have no clue. I advise you to hire private investigators to audit WFG field offices to observe and document the amount of forging signatures, malpractice, coercion, using inflating talk, ignoring client sustainability (whether it's a recruit or a sale), manipulative talk.
