    I have been working at Symmetry Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Symmetry gives everyone a place to call home. The culture here is bar non. Everyone with the company will go out of their way to help others. Because we are in the people business. Perhaps we are more of a leadership or self development company. That's why working with people at symmetry is always so rewarding.

    I started working as as agent in May of 2012 and earned over $100k my first year. When I was in the field I would protect 4-7 families a week. Since then I built a small team of other like minded good people. Now that small team has grown to 19 Agency Owners. And protecting more then a 1,000 families a month. I have not been in the field selling for 3 1/2 years. My income is all passive.

    Now Symmetry, allows us to own our own company, so if I become ill, or I want to sell my business, or when I pass away my business goes to my daughter and son. Wow, I get to build a legacy!!!

    I work from home. So I work when I want with whom I want and where I want. At this point the Insurance carrier's send us on free once in a lifetime vacations for you and your spouse. I went on 7 of them last year.

    Thank you Symmetry Financial Group for making a dream come true.

    Cons

    To work at Symmetry Financial Group you have to drop your ego. Many people come here thinking they know everything about insurance. That may be true, but you don't know about our predictable system. You have to treat this as a business, because it is. It's your business. You get out of it what you put into it. I you don't Listen, Work, Associate and Change. This is not a good fit for you and we wish you the best of luck.

    Pros

    Great earnings. I'm making more money that ever and having fun doing it. Symmetry has the best people you'll find. From the owners, who are hands on, to the managers, which I hope to be soon. The best products available. The best leads that are much lower cost than any other company. There are so many things I cant put it all down here.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    I'm so proud to be part of such a great group of people. I just hope the company continues to operate the way it does now. Dont change anything!

    I have been working at Symmetry Financial Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm self employed but I'm not on my own..I have many mentors within SFG that have held me by the hand and coached me over my first year. 100% expert support and training. If you google "entrepreneur magazine company culture" you will read SFG was voted tops for the company culture they have created throughout the USA...Its a well deserved award. The leadership is amazing.
    I earned a 6 figure income in my first 10 months.

    Cons

    Its a simple industry and niche to master (mortgage protection) if your willing to work hard.
    At the end of each day I'm often exhausted...Tired in a good way if your your wanting a challenge...No real Cons....I make a lot of phone calls 2 days a week and then drive to help new homeowners 3 days a week...the only con is I'm mentally tired at the end of the week...Symmetry is not for people looking for easy...It's a bunch of work but its worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great...no advice...just keep doing what your doing!

    The System at Symmetry to be successful: If you will follow the system and take action, it is irrefutable. It works!

    Pros

    Turnkey sales system great for independent minded entrepreneurs. Business ownership without costly overhead. An opportunity to build something that will last generations.

    Cons

    Not a get-rich quick. Will require hard work, emotional labor, leadership development, people skills and a desire for self improvement (aka change).

    Advice to Management

    Extremely grateful for the platform created in a spirit of abundance and generosity with a share-the-wealth perspective. It's not lonely at the top because the owners have invited everyone to join them--people who share a like-minded vision for their lives, lifestyle, and future. We are so grateful.

    I have been working at Symmetry Financial Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Best leads in the industry
    - Great comps with a clear path for growth
    - Out of the box system great for producers and builders
    - The best culture with ownership that takes care of people

    Cons

    You have to be able to manage your own time and stay focused on the tasks that make you a winner. To many people expect to put in little effort and get big returns, they will fall off quick here.

    Advice to Management

    Improved agent contracting would be a huge plus and I know you are working on it. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The people at Symmetry have poured into me. I have never been a part of a system and culture that does so much to help with my growth. They really live by their values and take care of people first.

    Cons

    Like others have said this is commission only so that comes with some challenges. But with hard work and perseverance this has become a very lucrative and meaningful career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you do!
