Great company

I love Discovery. As a financial advisor, you work on commission only. The industry is tough, but if you want to be in the industry, Discovery is the place to be.

Pros

Excellent training

Cons

Commission only

Exciting and stressful

This position is commission based so it is stressful when it comes to not having a stable income however, it is exciting when you present to clients, there is a nice culture within the company and the company is dynamic.

Pros

Commission structure

Cons

No basic or benefits

Challenging and productive workplace

Most of the days were hectic but this turned out to be a good experience because i learnt to work under pressure and delivering good results. My workmates were supportive and goal achievers. One of the most challenging issues were meeting the agreed target in a small town like East London, above all Discovery was a fun place to be and one would carry out duties without being coherced.

Pros

free braai

Cons

long hours
