    I have been working at Barnum Financial Group full-time


    My experience at Barnum Financial Group has exceeded expectations. The culture is very different than a traditional financial firm, as all employees are friendly and encourage exceptional support in all departments. You truly feel like part of a family when joining Barnum. I'm grateful to have taken advantage of the opportunity to work here.


    Many different offices, some members of upper management travel frequently so they may be hard to reach at times.
