Stressful

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Long hours, a lot of pressure from management. Work overtime including weekends, the pay is okay but not nearly worth the mental toll it takes on you. I was miserable all the time

More of sales and targets than Financial advice

This is good for the first 3 months as you get paid however this should not be your long term resort unless you are great with sales, meeting targets and you have a large portfolio of people to sell products to. There are times you will deter from actual financial advice just to make a sale so that you can make target. However you will learn a lot here

Pros

Flexible hours unless there are meetings

Cons

Target based salary, you may earn no salary at all

informative and flexi hours

had to attend morning meetings everyday week day for about 30 min and i would call clients and secure appointments,travel to prospect for new business and meet with clients. learned a lot about financial regulations and processes. reporting to a development and sales manager who was supporting and motivating me. had a really fun relationship with my co-workers and supported each other and have lots of fun. the hardest part about the job would be meeting the targets and qualifying for the academy fee,clients not paying their premiums and policies lapsing-mainly because clients arent happy with the after sales service.not having a fixed and reliable salary every month. the most enjoyable part of the job was seeing clients achieve their goals and having peace of mind.

Pros

Managing my own time.

Cons

After hours and travelling to see clients
