    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Modern Woodmen full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fraternalism, financially strong company, agents are active members of local communities, opportunity to make a real difference in people's lives with the financial products and advice we provide, ability to control scheduling and maintain work life balance, Good benefits... includes medical, rx, disability & dental insurance and retirement.

    Cons

    Home office focuses on Management, especially at Regional level instead of sales reps, limited access to underwriters, no vision plan offered, low commissions, limited ongoing training for seasoned reps, limited advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have fewer regions and invest the money saved into sales force and managing partners who work recruit, train, and work with reps...examples: Fund admin positions in larger district offices to provide agent support, many of these are producing more than a lot of regions and increase agent commissions.
