    I have been working at Freedom Equity Group part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have read many comments from people who look at this opportunity like a 9-5. They want a job. Freedom Equity Group is for people who want to be their own boss and build a business with little overhead, great income, and real residuals. I highly respect the leaders and founders of the company because I have had nothing but positive experiences with them. We have the top carriers and top products to fit client needs....

    Cons

    Some people do not give enough time to grow and build their business correctly, so they give up before reaching their potential.

    Advice to Management

    Let more people know they have to walk before they run.

      Cons

      To All Folks Interested in Freedom Equity Group (FEG) - I had a one-call discussion with a member of the Kaiser Team which is an affiliate agency of FEG. During this call I tried to ask every question reasonably possible in order to understand the sales process, the training process, the commission plan, and how the program worked. AFTER payment of my $125 fee and talking with a different individual within Kaiser, I...

      I worked at Freedom Equity Group part-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      I tried to make this work for six months. They have products with two carriers that are very good and not available to majority of agents. I was a contracted agent.

      Cons

      55%-70% Contract. MLM. Heavy on recruiting, and selling to warm market. Running through the numbers of agents. Without warm market, you can't see enough to make this work. No leads. Little training. Very, very tough here compared to so many other IMO's out there with leads, live closers, serious product training that's recorded and available 24/7. Will not release under any circumstance, for all carriers...

      Advice to Management

      Open release policy, you already got $125 from people that practically nobody else charges. If you have something good, let people go, and they'll come back. If not, then there's something wrong and it raises red flags. If you truly care about families, care about agents also.

      I have been working at Freedom Equity Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Call center, warm leads, daily training, fast-start school, sky's the limit income potential, recruiting optional, weekly pay on commissions. I looked at a lot of jobs/1099 positions and this one checked off everything I was looking for. You will make more here than any other insurance job/position.

      Cons

      You are not going to a job. You must be self-motivated to do the work required to create the income you desire.
