Pros

The focus of Modern Woodmen is to help its members. Other financial firms are many times only concerned with selling. The clear message in everything about Modern Woodmen from the top down is this. The more you help people (by working hard, being honest and treating everyone with dignity and respect) the more you will get in return. The fraternal side of MWA is a huge asset to both it's sales force and it's customers. If you're not familiar with the "fraternal" aspect of Modern Woodmen, do some research. I've found the right place to work.

Cons

As is the job of selling financial intangibles, you have to work hard and put in the hours. There is a lot to learn and you must do it on the run. As for cons, relative to any other financial service job or company, none come to mind.

Advice to Management

Management is open to conversation and quick and willing to give help and advice. My only comment would be to keep it up. Their dedication to keeping MWA members (and me) happy is a wonderful thing.

    Pros

    The Managers are very nice.

    Cons

    Strictly commission-based.
    Have to rely on family and cold-calls to get started.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to give some of your Reps a few of your clientele to get them started.

    Pros

    Long history...fraternal benefits...cares about the elderly

    Cons

    Straight commission, never any fresh leads, cold calling, lack of leadership from managing partner and regional director. Upper management uses and abuses "young" talent.

    Advice to Management

    Update the company structure and get some marketing. No one knows who Modern Woodmen is.
