Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON – 1 April 2014
Since I started working in 2008 I've had one of the best experiences working at IG, the culture is and has always been family oriented which allows all individuals more flexibility than other jobs. Everyone is always eager to help and as usual each job comes with its negative or less preferred part of the job which is filing but the people make it more fun to tackle the job.

I found investors group to be great in the sense of managing your own book of clients. It provides a sort of entrepreneurial workplace for people to do everything on their own time. It was challenging but also rewarding for when your efforts begin to show results.

Consultant (Current Employee) – Ontario – 8 February 2017
Long hours. Hard to succeed in the first two years without a strong list of prospects. Ongoing pressure to reach sales targets. This highly regulated industry makes it difficult to give adequate time to keep up with income-generating activities. Fees and expenses make it difficult to net a reasonable income. Income can be good after several years of extraordinary hours.
Consultant (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 16 January 2017
The leadership and training is top shelf. The office culture is very good. There is no limitations to growth short of your own capabilities and it's fun being surrounded by entrepreneurs. Everyone feels good about what they do and make good money. It's not for everyone as it is not an employee relationship but a business you own and run with IG's support. The new compensation model released in late 2016 is really good; maybe the best in the industry.
