Productive and fun place to work with great office culture
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON2 July 2016
A career at Freedom 55 Financial offers more than industry specific skill training - it has allowed me to build a foundation of client and business partner relationships. The most enjoyable part of my job is working alongside the advisors and the management team and streamlining work processes. There is no typical day - each day comes with its own surprises, new teachings and opportunities for growth.

Go Big or Go Home
Financial Security Advisor (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS15 July 2016
This job is great for mature individuals who already have experience and connections in financial industry. These types of people can make a ton of money fast from their existing book of business. Others may have a hard time due to cold prospecting that is required. A full-commission environment is not ideal for everyone - especially young individuals who are just coming out of school and are not well connected to friends that have $100,000k or more savings. If you can work in this environment it is potentially the best job because of the work/life balance and pay. If you try to work here good luck!
Pros
work/life balance, pay, holistic product shelf, great product specialists
Cons
slow starting-up for new advisors, investment personnel in office can only advise on Quadrus investments, which are very sub-par in the industry

great people to work with
Financial Security Advisor (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC23 March 2016
Hard work, but rewarding. Always need to be prospecting new clients. Challenging, and every new client is unique.

Management is great, there to support and give training when needed. Open door policy, good team atmosphere.

I make my own schedule, definite perk. But long hours can be sometimes hectic since seeing clients during the week can be all over the map!
Pros
work very autonomously
Cons
long hours

Need to know a lot of people to be succussful
Financial Security Advisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 December 2016
A lot of time spent on the phone and a lot of nights spent travelling to meetings. If you do not have a good base of people that you can call in the first year of work, it will prove difficult to succeed. If you are a Type A personality, it will be easier.

much training and information
financial security advisor (Current Employee) –  Laval, QC10 November 2016
It is impressive to see the support given by this company. On a typical work day , I enter the office greeted by wonderful support staff at front desk. Then I go to a joint work space to discuss, files and get support from other advisors. All in all a wonderful work environment

Terrible experience
Financial Securities Advisor (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 March 2016
Has put me into debt and its become a massive burden on my life.
Aside from the training manager, the management staff are liars, who say take the time you need for your medical reasons, and being self employed I didn't see that as an issue, because I make my own hours, so I scheduled time for a few un avoidable doctors appointments, thinking that it was ok to, because I was told so by my superior to only find out because I did that my training wage was cut off and I was pushed to all commission as a brand new employee. They offer no support. Would highly suggest that no one works for this company.
Pros
Self scheduling
Cons
commission, terrible support staff.

Not bad for an entry experience
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 June 2016
Not good either; you need wealthy people around you and most already have advisors or don't want to know them. You'd have better luck staying away unless you know friends will buy insurance and investments (mainly insurance) because it's an industry that's probably not going to survive, at least for financial advisors down the road from what I see.
