    I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people with whom I worked. The company's incentives are decent -- high commissions, vacations for top sellers, bonuses for the sale of certain products, etc.

    Cons

    Just about everything. The company's products are inferior, and the selling method couldn't feel less organic. Essentially, be ready to sell products to your own social network with ZERO help from the company. Oh, and the position is commission ONLY. Don't sell? Don't eat.

    Advice to Management

    Let new hires know exactly what they're in for... I was misled throughout the recruitment and training process, and couldn't have been less happy during my entire time with the firm. I regret ever accepting my offer.

    Pros

    The interview process was great! They made it seem like it the best place to work for.

    Cons

    Getting your own leads. No training from management. When you bring in a policy watch out, the managers will try to rob you!!!

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire shady managers & if you advertise to do something, do it. Don't waste anyone's time, it makes you look weak!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    -You were able to create your own schedule and they were very flexible with accomodating different training sessions.

    Cons

    -The fact they represent themselves as financial advisors is scary. They have no knowledge other than how to talk people up and make them feel like they know what they are talking about. -They give no base pay to start out and the training they provide is inadequate. -Their business model is to bring in as many people as possible, have them call all their friends and family, and whoever survives they enjoy the roll down from their comissions and who doesn't is not their problem.

    Advice to Management

    Stop tricking innocent people into believing you know what you're talking about. Gain some type of knowledge of what your selling and stop trying to throw the product with the biggest commission at every client no matter their present situation.
