  1. Nice working environment

    I worked at Freedom Financial Network

    Pros

    Very nice environment to work at. People are very friendly. Luncheon once a month. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will feel like you are being micromanaged. One time I was messing with my phone about 10 mins before I get off work and my manager saw me doing that. Couple days later I received a write up warning. Seriously? I can't even relax for a bit a few mins before getting off work after a long day of work?!

    Wonderful management Flexible schedules Fair wages Opportunity to advance Warm and welcoming environment Company parties Paid holidays

    Cons

    Parking can be tough There needs to be a work from home/remote location for roles that don't require being on the phones.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Embrace new ideas and continue the positive growth I have seen thus far.

    Pros

    Schedule is flexible, great team, lots of OT, manager is easy to talk to, employee lunches, employee events,(Xmas Party, summer event). I personally had an experience in which FDR helped me and that showed how much they care for their employees. I have been here for over 3 years. BEST PLACE I HAVE EVEN WORKED FOR. ....

    Cons

    Attendance, but it really did not make a difference to me.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to implement new ideas for growth.

    Pros

    No waiting on health benefits. They hire good people. They are pretty flexible with employee schedule. One free employee lunch every month. Free leads

    Cons

    Management greed is prominent Internal employee dis-satisfaction is high but people stay due to benefits listed here, stress level is high Customers are sold into debt settlement without disclosing their loss of credit rating Customers often come back saying they were deceived into the program.Company charges very high fees to customers who are already struggling financially, Management closes their eyes on many levels--its all about the money

    Advice to Management

    Choose people (employees and customers) over money. It always comes back to you

    Pros

    There is lots of opportunity for advancement. Several employees end up in multiple positions during their employment with Freedom. Internal Applications are encouraged and valued. Lunch is provided for every employee once a month and there a a lot of incentive programs available. Management is very understanding and will work with employees when special situations arise.

    Cons

    Management is pulled in many directions and there are not enough of them to dedicate individualized attention to every aspect of their departments. Many negative reviews mention management and I can see from years of experience that the Managers are often stretched too thin which causes an appearance of not caring. This is not the case. They try their best but they could use more staff to help them.

    Advice to Management

    The company is growing exponentially so the Mangement department should also grow to accomidate all the new employees. There are several team leads under each Manager but there could still be more especially for new hires as the company grows.
