Excellent Career and Competitive company
I have been with IG now for over 15 years and have developed a fantastic client base. I work hard and have been rewarded by taking care of my clients. The compensation system is very fair and competitive. The products are very highly rated and they have negotiable fees. IG has become a very powerful company in the past years and have fantastic planning outcomes for clients. This has been an amazing career for me and my family.

Not really running your own business
Will sell you on running your own business but you're really not. The further you go the deeper you're in with them. Corporate policies are not necessarily practiced at the ground level.

Check Your Moral's at the Door
Commission only contractor model designed to churn through consultants and clients.

Not sure about the current model, but when I left 10 years ago Deferred Sales Charge mutual funds were the bread and butter.

Productive workplace
One has to build their own portfolio to succeed, again commission based may not be attractive for everyone, especially when trying to raise a family and you are the sole breadwinner.

Horrible company to work for.
IG ( Investors Group ) care only about trying to bring in potentially new clients money and/or funds not about their consultants/associates or even sometimes what’s best for their clients.

Older candidates have no chance.
They charge consultants way too much overhead. Very difficult for new consultants to get ahead. Older candidates have zero chance of being successful. Too late getting in the game.

Culture changed over the last 5 years
Initial experience at IG Wealth Management was very positive, and the first couple of years would have had much higher ratings. However the new CEO has brought change which has increased stress, reduced job security and has not improved the overall workplace atmosphere.

As a place to learn, the experience was interesting and excellent, but that was mostly the people and those people are now all gone. To be fair, each department has its own microculture and others may be doing better. Base your estimations on the personality of your supervisor in the interview. Negotiate strongly for a high starting salary as increases after start are nearly impossible to acquire.

Substantial rewards for those who work hard in their first ten years
A typical work week in your first ten years, in order to achieve success, is going to require you to work 50 to 60 hours. Although, in the early years there are minimum earnings guarantees, they come attached to production expectations. You are building your own clientele. If you succeed there are income potentials that are beyond most expectations. You will learn a lot. There are more people trained here working in the finance industry, than from any other financial services company. The training is top drawer.

Be a consultant and build your own practice or join corporate administrative side as an employee of the company.
Focused on client acquisition and retention. Consultants receive ongoing education and support. Onsite specialists and admin help facilitate development of own business. If joining the corporate administrative side - some room for growth and/or movement. Over past few years, consistent changes in model, structure and resource requirements/usage have occurred.

Work hard
Beware of local politics. Know that you can’t be everyone’s friend and work hard at utilizing the connections you can make. Very good pay, benefits and training done at a national level. Work hard and you will do well

Never IG
Routinely over promise and under deliver on their promises. Bonus structure is mostly unattainable

High fees, poor performance makes it feel like we are burdening our clients

If you are a people person, this could be the perfect job for you!
If you are really likeable!!! This appears to be the most important part of the job. Additionally, you have to be very computer savvy, investment smart and mathematically astute. There is great support by the company. It helps a lot if you know a lot of really rich people who will give you their money!

Staff is really friendly and supportive.

Lots of paper work,Follow ups and deadlines.


many potlucks and other celebrations keeps it live and enjoyable.


All over a good place to work at. only the salary part is not so great. Low increments make you disappointed.

Improper procedures and rotating rolls with limited training
overall my experience at IG Wealth Management was not positive. I worked as an assistant for 3 consultants at various times. At the end of my experience I felt disposable as each of them would find an unjustifiable reason to terminate as my 3 months approached. Each time I had to quote the employment standards act to receive proper procedures. All things considering, you are working for the individual consultant so it really depends on that person. The company as a whole does not regulate you as an assistant. Additionally, there is no proper training program for unlicensed assistants. They get you to refer to a data base and there are some minor courses required, however often finding the time to do them was a challenge. High expectations in a fast paced demanding environment, I’d suggest training and certifications before entering a roll as an assistant.

Challenging yet collaborative environment
Culture is very collaborative and management is approachable. The hardest part of the job is managing change, training employees, juggling competing priorities and influencing positive habits in others.

Enjoyed the people/relationships, but tough to make a living
Very laid back environment, learned a lot about the different financial services available. Tough to stay disciplined and motivated, and the money is not where it should be.
