    Pros

    Great compensation model and it's very unique in the industry. Support from management team and head office is incomparable. They advocate the importance of getting a designation and they helped me alot to achieve my CFP. The quality of training in the Scarborough Financial Centre is great.

    Cons

    Work long hours but it can be very flexible. Sometimes clients would cancel appointments last minute but that's normal so I just have to have a contingency plan of my activities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support us on business development.
