Full commission and massive pressure to sell to family
Consultant (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 14 December 2017
the pressure to push mutual funds upon your family is unreal, additionally I was hired with the pretence that I could start the business at my pace. When I lagged a month in performance due to my wife and son both being hospitalised, I was threatened to be let go. This I found unacceptable and it changed my perspective of the company.
