Mission: Mission: To provide financial solutions, service and education enabling consumers to reduce debt, build wealth and achieve financial freedom.
Freedom Financial Network is a growing group of over 1200 employees – known internally as “The Freedom Family.” We’re energetic, smart & compassionate but--most importantly--we're all about helping our customers with meaningful financial solutions. Freedom was founded in 2002 by Stanford Business School graduates Andrew Housser and Brad Stroh. While the company has grown tremendously since its founding, we pride ourselves on maintaining a culture of innovation, empowerment, and compassion. Freedom works out of two ,locations in San Mateo, California and Tempe, Arizona.
We help people improve their financial well being through multiple groups, including: Bills.com, Freedom Debt Relief, ConsolidationPlus, FreedomPlus and our investment arm. This might mean helping consumers get out of debt for the least possible personal cost or it may be conducting financial consultations, educating Americans on their options and recommending the appropriate solutions for their personal needs. Our core services offer an alternative to bankruptcy, credit counseling, and traditional debt consolidation. We've always approached the business from the human perspective and represent the consumer exclusively (not the banks or other agendas) – we become your number one advocate helping you re-establish solid financial footing as quickly as possible.
Freedom Financial is committed to elevating the standards of our industries and we place the appropriate emphasis on our responsibility for our valued customer base. We are on the Board of Directors of the leading debt industry association, the American Fair Credit Council (AFCC), focused on elevating business standards and industry regulation. We also take a leadership role in our communities with active support and actions to help our teammates, clients, and communities... something we've taken great pride in since our foundation.

Freedom Financial Network (FFN) offers excellent healthcare benefit plans, insurance, and much more to help meet the needs our valued employees and their families. Taking care of everyone on the team is a core value of our Company.
We also understand that the health and benefits requirements of you and your family are unique, so we offer a variety of options to accommodate the needs of everyone on our team. As a Freedom Financial employee, you can be confident your needs will be met, your hard work recognized, and your loyalty rewarded.
There are several plans available to Freedom employees, to provide the flexibility for you to choose the option that is right for you. Depending on location, employees can select from two health providers – Aetna or Kaiser. Aetna offerings include an HMO, POS and a HDHP. In addition, you may participate in the Flexible Spending and Dependent Care programs that provide pre-tax savings on benefit contributions.
Our generous vision plan annually provides for exams, frames, lenses or contacts. You can choose vision coverage under the Vision Service Plan (VSP) or use the provider of your choice. VSP has the most extensive network of optometrists and vision care specialists in the country.
Our dental plans offer sound traditional coverage with a higher benefit network option available. Dental coverage is available through Guardian and has both in-network & out-of-network coverage options.
Our annual Freedom "Employee Satisfaction Survey" is a part of our culture, deeply ingrained to solicit feedback and then take actions on what our teammates need, in order to constantly improve our culture. A few years ago many people asked for a long-term retirement plan, in the form of a 401(k) - and we listened! We now offer a Mass Mutual administered 401(k) plan, with company match.
Our coverage provides employees 1X their annual base salary, at no cost to the employee, when they participate in the group medical plan. You can also buy up for additional levels of coverage by selecting options under our "Voluntary/Supplemental Benefits" program.
Voluntary / Supplemental Benefits
Our benefits plans can also be extended through supplemental benefits packages, with optional services that include long term care, disability, renters, auto, accident & pet insurance.
Employee Assistance Programs
Offered through Life’s Solutions, the Employee Assistance Programs at Freedom are available to employees and their immediate family members.

The Top 11 reasons to work with Freedom (these are all messages from our teammates):
I have been working at Freedom Financial Network full-time (More than a year)
All phases of the business are growing at a fast pace. The leadership is strong and they have a willingness to adapt and listen to employees. If the economy goes down this company will be doing even better. It is one of the few counter cyclical companies.
They are not cons, but challenges - Need to add more technical talent for analytics, Eng and product.
Advice to Management
Need to figure out their brand strategy so that consumers think of Freedom when they need a loan or debt relief.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Freedom Financial Network (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2017.
After applying online an email is sent with a day and time for a phone interview with a recruiter. Then a face to face after a personality test was taken. My interview was with three men. Two were very professional, I definitely knew that the third did not care for my presence.
