    I have been working at Strategic Financial Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working at Strategic for over two years and I must say it is like a second home to me. I actually look forward to Monday’s, which is not something that most people can say. I am not sure where all these negative reviews are coming from. The income potential is absurdly high if you put in the work. For those who have sales experience, it is an easy transition into finance, and it’s amazing to see those coming out of college as a first or second job making 150-200K very quickly. Yes, a lot of people do not make it, because of lack of effort, skill set, or the drive to succeed, and I assume that these are the people that write the negative reviews. I truly believe that I am helping clients out with what ever option suits them the best.
    **For those negative review posters- if you do not believe in the product, and the company, how can you expect to succeed/enjoy your job?

    The opportunity for upward mobility is there as well, as the company promotes from within most of the time. That was something that was very important to me when I left my lucrative job to come to work here two years ago.
    I believe in the product, and the company, and hope to stick around for years to come, building a second home.

    Cons

    Can be a challenging work/life balance, but great co-workers and office get togethers help immensely.

    Advice to Management

    Help is always there for those who ask for it. The level of understanding and care for your employees is incredible. If you are having a rough time, or are having issues with something even outside of work, I truly feel like any of the management would talk and help you through it. I trust most of you as I would trust a friend I have known for over a decade.

    The new implementation of Ambition allows for less micromanaging, and promotes self awarness for each consultant of what they are succeeding in, what they need to work on, and what others are doing in order to become top producers.

    Thanks you for everything.
