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

    Pros

    The work at deVere is exactly what you'd expect from such a world class company. The work is hard and the days are long, but that's what you're told from day one. In honesty working for them has been an incredible experience so far, they are very supportive of you and will help you achieve your ambitions if you're not afraid to put in the hard work.

    Cons

    Honestly can't see a con, everything is how I expected

    Pros

    During the graduate programme you receive alot of training, support, help and advice. If you have any questions at all there is always someone to help you.

    Cons

    Hard work and early morning so not much time to socialize but is so worth it after you have finished.

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

    Pros

    Very well-structured format to prepare you for each next step in the training process. Great competitive atmosphere- personally found this a fun aspect as oppose to daunting or overbearing. Lots of opportunities to gain advise and mentorship from those more experienced and from those who have been through the same process also.

    Cons

    Early mornings, certainly not for the faint hearted /lazy individuals- As it is results driven you need to be tenacious and ambitious.

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

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to learn about some financial products, and had the opportunity to live in Dubai straight out of uni

    Cons

    You can earn similar amounts in other jobs, with less stress. No work life balance (12 hour days) and the job has little variety. I believe the job isn’t difficult, just mind numbing and can be done by anyone. The reason why most people leave. You have to find your own people to cold call. Meaning that they encourage you to pay (with your own money) pizza delivery guys for contact details of their customers, or persuading a phone network provider to show you a list of their clients with names and numbers. If you have no one to cold call, you probably won’t make any money. Either that or you stalk people on linkedin to call (fun as you can imagine) Very laddish culture, doesn’t feel like a professional environment. (I worked for 5 months, so I gave it a shot) You do not need a degree and felt as though I was wasting mine. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone who has a good degree from a good university. In fact wouldn’t recommend for anyone who has prospects to get a good job anywhere else. The company has a terrible reputation in the industry especially in the UK due to misselling etc, so I believe working here can taint your reputation if you stay long enough. So if you actually want a real job back in the UK, keep that in mind. I worked among people who had zero qualifications yet were providing financial advice to people. If you’re looking for a good job in finance, this is not the job. If you’re looking for a job in hard sales, then it is for you. The whole thing is very disorganised and unprofessional — my starting date was moved about 3 times and then they finally changed my starting location from Malta to dubai. Contrary to what they say, your flights are not fully funded. I spent about £1000 relocating which was not paid for by the company. Exams and Visa not paid for either. (which they also mislead you on) At the training they tell you to ignore the glass door reviews — don’t. Everything you see is true. I managed to get a good and respected job a month after I left and I am earning faaar more than I earned at deVere so do not believe the hype. Leaving was the best thing I could have done for my career.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I had read many negative reviews about the DeVere Grad program before applying for this role but after 4 weeks training in Malta I am now based permanently in Auckland, New Zealand with the potential to earn a great salary for the first year of a graduate program - all my university friends are fighting for graduate jobs in London paying £18-25,000! This job comes with a work hard play hard culture, if you are willing to put in the hours then you will get to reap the rewards ten fold and have the opportunity to work all across the world.

    Cons

    I have found no cons to this job, they have paid for my visa, flights & accommodation since I joined the company. As per my "pro's" this job is very rewarding as long as you put in the work - if you want an easy ride or a free holiday then don't waste your time applying

    Pros

    Training in Malta was excellent Cuts out the faint hearted You get out what you put in - if you want to be lazy you won't get far in the company. If you're a driven, ambitious and hard-working individual, you have the ability to succeed in this company.

    Cons

    Not really any other than the fact some people may not be able to handle the training and the job. You need grit.
