As an advisor you are how the financial centre makes their money. The training is pretty good, and they will support building a business, but be prepared for selling to your close friends and family as well as working really hard and long hours the first 3 years before you see any real returns for your efforts.
The management are sexist. Most of them are there for the social events. They want to party and the younger female advisors are treated like fresh meat. It is still an old boys club. This might not be the case at all financial centers.

If you are young and smart and able to live your work and live with your parents while building your business then it might be for you.

Beware as well that you can rack up debt through expenses with the company (office space, benefits etc). They make money off you renting their space and occupying their offices. YOU the advisor are THEIR commodity.

If you know anything about insurance, investing and sales then skip the handholding and go make more money with an independent brokerage.

Financial Advisor (Employé actuel) - Toronto, ON
lots of misleading statements. So be aware that they do not care for you and will only help if and when you are producing. Young new advisors recieve barely any help and from the get go you are thrown into the lions den. Be prepared to work long hours for little pay.
Points positifs
Access to seminars
Points négatifs
Mistruths, hypocrisy, lack of mentors, the struggle is real.

Disability Case Manager (Ancien employé) - Waterloo, ON
The company makes hard for the employees to perform. They make the employees go through much scrutiny just to create a show. In reality, your survival is greatly depend on who is your manager and team leader, you will find there are actually no consistency in the way the STD-LTD claims are handled. The job itself could be more satisfying to any case manager if they were not constantly micro-managed. Paid money is actually very low once you divide them into the total time you actually put doing your job. The benefits are provided by the company are in comparison to all other out there serving in same industry profile.
Points positifs
benefits
Points négatifs
making it highly stressful
