    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?

      It’s basically all a scam, do not bother applying here.

      Pros

      Absolutely none. Just a waste of an application.

      Cons

      They advertise various roles, I.e. finance graduates, wealth management graduate etc, but the actual role has nothing to do with any of that and all you’ll be is a recruitment consultant essentially. Cold calling, sales and little to no relation to the role you’ve actually applied for. This company is using you to get them more business, then after your internship or graduate programme they let you go and hire the next round of people the can exploit. The sad thing is they have current ‘graduates’ working for them trying to recruit more people to do the same thing they are doing, not realising they’re being played. I don’t usually write reviews on here but this one really needed to be said. Stay away!!

      Pros

      Quick process and thats it. This is not a company with any decancy or ethics. Be very careful if interviewing them for a role,

      Cons

      I was applying for a role at deVere and had progressed to joining a meeting with CEO Nigel Green. Unfortunately, I contracted Covid so was unable to attend the meeting (in addition to feeling unwell I had a bad cough and was frequently sneezing, one of the requirements was to keep the microphone on at all times, so was in the interests of all participants I didn't join) Despite contacting my contact to inform her I was too unwell to attend she did not reply and has ignored subsequent emails. If this is an indicator of how deVere treat staff I have had a lucky escape. If you were thinking of doing business with them, I would question if this is the sort of firm you want to deal with.

      The worst company to have ever worked for

      Aug 9, 2021 - Financial Advisor in London, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Literally nothing good to say!!!

      Cons

      Made me move more than 5000 miles away, didn't even pay me what I was worth, they say they'll pay for half of the tickets however, they only do this if you manage to survive in the office for at least a month (Racism, Sexism, Narcissism are at sky high levels in the office), staff gets threated like in pre-historic times, they make you sign a 08:30-17:30 contract but they expect you to arrive in the office at the latest 07:30 am and if you leave earlier than 19:00 they look at you like you committed a crime. They hire you for a financial advisory position and all they make you do is cold calling, literally nothing that got something to do with financial advisory. This is literally the worst possible company. No wonder they have such a rubbish image!!! PS: all the negative things you find about them on the internet are true, AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

      Would not recommend working here!

      Pros

      The training programme was good - 2 weeks long and quite in depth with lots of new knowledge about the financial world

      Cons

      Awful employer. After training there was 0 support and you work remotely with no access to any additional training or advise. Would not recommend this position to anyone. Expected to work with no salary. It is a very male dominated environment and do not really want women in the team.
