    I worked at deVere Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good products, professional reputation and great work colleagues. ECC in Mijas has been closed and the dreadful teamleaders have gone.

    Cons

    Micro-management of staff. Public humiliation for under-performers by team leaders instead of encouragement. Being forced to get on all fours and bark like a dog is not funny and definitely not professional. Yes, Senior management were aware of this! Expect advisors to pay their own travel costs when visiting clients.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and playing childish office games. Glad to see the ECC has been closed. The team leaders were outright bullies who took great pleasure in making life impossible for everyone. Treat the Employees as professional adults and compensate your advisors fairly.

    Pros

    Ceo is an inspiring man, but he is a sales guy. They have to work on the organisation drastically

    Cons

    They only tell you the top of the ice berg. Money is the only driver for Manager, not the individual development of employee. Low payment.

    Advice to Management

    Change!

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

    Pros

    The idea of working for such a large well known establishment would be great, as the future prospects would build your career.

    Cons

    You can apply for as many roles as you want, via email or online or linkedin. Noone will reply to your email or even notify you if they have received your application. Very bad ethics in the recruitment process.

    Advice to Management

    Add additional staff to your recruitment department, or an automated response email to notify the applicant that you have received the application.

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

    Pros

    Great sales pitch and website. All looks too good to be true.

    Cons

    Hard Sell / Boiler room mentality - commission only sales for survival of the fittest ! Pyramid / affinity sales at its finest . Why are advisors commission only if its such a great outfit !? Search Devere group in Google and you can read all about them !! Ask yourself why such a large and prestigous financial advisor is not based in London or New York ? but instead in the great financial centres of Malta , Cyprus and Dubai !!! ??? If you were a rich person should you really invest large amounts of money with a company you have never heard of ? why not invest with one of the larger more well known global banks that have the size and breadth of knowledge to actually be able to give advice and know what they are doing. The advice given is really about earning commission for the commission hungry sales people and managers, not at all in the interests of clients.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to play in the big league. Stick to your knitting ie. A market stall or corner shop !

    Pros

    Wasting your time is the best way to spend your time. Another way to think of it as a pro point of view is how you look on wasting your time.

    Cons

    Everything is rubbish, staff, training, bonuses, wage, travel, "Party", even the water in the office is rubbish, someday the coffee is the worst thing I ever tried.

    Advice to Management

    If I get kids one day I would never let them work there, either should you. Good advice would be do your homework before you speak, I double check everything you say, and its all nonsense!

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

    Pros

    You can earn loads if you work hard and remain determined despite the challenges you may face. Better have some money before you start as you will be on commission mostly.

    Cons

    You fail if you don't believe in yourself. A bit of miss leading at the recruitment...you need to clarify more things, its not a perfect job as described.

    Advice to Management

    They encourage you but you are literally self-employed.
