    Primarily insurance sales. Good offerings all around, but stellar at none.

    Pros

    Company has a long history and honest products. Definitely not a fly-by-night operation. The biggest advantage is that the company works very hard to stay out of trouble areas in the industry and provide basic but reliable services. If you are a knockout insurance salesperson, you can do very well. Systems and processing support for reps are adequate. There are product offerings that allow for some sales in a variety of financial services areas (like insurance, investments, and banking).

    Cons

    You are on your own from day one. Like many small businesses, there's no salary, corporate marketing, brand recognition, nor assets under management for new hires. The monthly recurring costs are higher than many competitors and has significantly high turnover because of it. There are product offerings for a lot of different services, but they are not the top-tier in any of them. If you want to focus on investments, go to Edward Jones. If you want to sell insurance, got to New York Life. If you want to sell bank deposit products, join Chase. Compensation rates are relatively competitive for the industry but base salaries or corporate-covered expenses at most competitors usually make all the difference for new hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of trying to build an internal mentality that this is a premier, comprehensive financial services organization, realize that this is an insurance company and focus effort on being a great one. Figure out how to launch and keep talented reps. I've seen too many brilliant people leave for other top-tier organizations without so much as an exit interview. Be realistic about what the company is an embrace it. Give the field that message and let them feel supported.

    Pros

    Good opportunity foe Lutherans financial services rep., Company takes good care of members concerns and needs. I recomend it for somoene looking for a good Fraternal company.

    Cons

    The downside is yhat yo are restricted in only dealing with Lutherans and family members of employees, can't sell to non Lutherans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to better distribute members to new reps instead of favoring the senior reps. Continue to service members and suport fraternal initiatives.
