I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time for less than a year

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 for 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.

    I worked at Modern Woodmen as an intern

    Pros

    The Managers are very nice.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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