Have a Market
Financial Security Advisor (Current Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON25 July 2017
It is a nice place to work, but you had better have a market. There is a higher emphasis on sales as opposed to servicing the clients you have. There are thresholds to meet.

Good company but for life only

Freedom 55 Financial is good company for people who has lead already, but it's not for the people who just entering into the life business industry. The commission structure is about average in the market

Tough business to succeed
Financial Security Advisor (Current Employee) –  Kingston, ON31 May 2017
Tough to make it, need to have a strong warm market or a family with a lot of money who need life insurance. Not a ton of help from management or company once you are hired.
