Company Updates

  • New York, NY, August 8, 2018 - Strategic Financial Solutions announced that it has officially celebrated its 11th anniversary in the financial services industry. Founded in 2007 by Ryan Sasson, Daniel Blumkin, and Ian Behar, the NYC-based firm is committed to helping people burdened with high interest debt. In 2017, Strategic became a 100% employee-owned company and now operates out of both New York City and Buffalo.
    “I could not be prouder of how far our company has come in eleven years,” said Ryan Sasson, CEO. “When we first started on this journey, our main goal was to help individuals challenged with debt achieve financial peace of mind. So far, Strategic has helped over 100,000 clients resolve more than $1 billion in high-interest credit card debt. With the clarity of a mission to help people, we have been able to attract a phenomenal team that is dedicated to bettering the lives of millions of Americans. I am very grateful there has not been a single day that I wasn’t excited to work for Strategic and our clients.”

  • New York, NY, June 4, 2018 – Strategic Financial Solutions announced today that it would donate $10 to TinySuperheroes for every employee-owner who dressed up as a superhero for its third annual Strategic Superhero Day. TinySuperheroes is an organization that empowers children overcoming any illness or disability. Founded in 2012, TinySuperheroes creates superhero capes for young children to remind them how strong they are to keep fighting.

    “Our mission at TinySuperheroes seems simple – to empower extraordinary kids as they overcome an illness or disability, but I could tell you hundreds of stories of incredible kids that would inspire you and possibly change your life forever,” said Robyn Rosenberger, Founder of TinySuperheroes.

    Strategic Financial Solutions supports multiple local and national charities and is always looking for ways to integrate additional organizations into their company events. 150 employee-owners wore superhero costumes which translated into a $1,500 donation for TinySuperheroes. This donation will allow more than 50 kids to receive custom capes.

    I worked at Strategic Financial Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really loved and appreciated my job and the owners. The people I worked with are my family and some of my closest friends. I would of still been there but I had to move. The culture is amazing. I loved part of something that is growing like a weed and able to touch so many people's lives. I had the ability to make a lot of money and had fun with the people I did it with.

    Cons

    I would say long hours but honestly I worked from 10-8 Monday to Thursday and 10-6 on Friday which isn't so bad considering my earning potential.

    Advice to Management

    I love what you did with the employee ownership. I am sad I had to leave before I really got to benefit from it. I think you need to do more education around it because people don't really understand how much of an amazing benefit it really is.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Strategic Financial Solutions (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Long and not very informative. When interviewed by the VP, he talked and talked without letting me get a word in. This should have been a red flag. I continued as I was interests in the company.
