I have been working at Sammons Financial Group full-time (More than 5 years)
I started working for SFG over 7 years ago and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The culture that exists within the organization is unmatched by most, and is rated in the top percentile for culture when compared to similar type organizations. Developing people and creating an open and honest work environment are what I enjoy the most. SFG is an ESOP organization with spectacular growth over the last 15 years. I would recommend working for this company which I have called my work home for so many years to anyone!
The cons that I have experienced are minimal and normal for any large organization.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sammons Financial Group (Sioux Falls, SD) in July 2017.
The interview was a little scary at first because there was 4 people interviewing me at once. But as the process started it was pretty relaxed and fun. It wasn't so much of drilling questions but getting to know me and and my past work experience and maybe how I would react to certain situations.
Sometimes building your dream life starts with just that - dreaming. Start at your goals and work backwards to find what career works for you!
