Pros

Faith based
Fraternal Benefit Society
Quality products

Cons

Not much help for a brand new person, launch managers are stretched way to thin
No prospecting model
No name recognition outside the Lutheran faith

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Begin each new FR with better training and some focus on the things that will make a new FR successful in the long term
1. Prospecting
2. Marketing

    Pros

    large amount of quality products, overall positive customer opinion of the company because of the charity work. Comes with some built in leads.

    Cons

    Lack of name recognition, can only sell Thrivent products, people only think of this as an insurance company and do not want to do more work with you. Lots of weekends and nights because of the relationship with churches and the business model of working with people in their homes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more advertising to raise brand awareness, drop the for Lutherans part of the name and make it easier to get charitable money for outside organizations

    Pros

    Faith based value proposition and strong financial performance. Loyal membership, solid reputation and products. Appropriate training, tools and support.

    Cons

    Lack of clear company direction. Senior leaders do not instil confidence and cloud indecision with arrogance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value your field staff. They are the lifeline to your members.
