    I have been working at WoodmenLife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work with a lot of good people in the IT department. Woodmen is big on training, so they give you the opportunity to go to classes and conferences. Work life balance is really important to the company overall, and they do a good job of pointing out people who consistently put in effort that goes above and beyond. It's a fraternal company, meaning it's technically a non-profit, so things are done on a more long term basis rather than a very short-term focused, publicly traded company. It's very comfortable to be here.

    Cons

    They are pretty behind on a lot of technology, and the huge amount of people within 5-10 years of retirement is a little worrying. The IT department in particular is not always the best about hiring younger candidates with a little less experience. They'd rather have the more senior people, which makes sense to some degree, but does make it a little hard to fit in when you're in a younger age bracket.

    Advice to Management

    If things keep heading in the direction they're heading now, I see good things coming up. They've got a lot of potential and a lot of very talented people here willing to put the work in to bring us up to current standards. My advice really is to keep the focus on continuing to modernize our platforms and look at new ways to generate sales.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at WoodmenLife (Omaha, NE) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was really simple. They ask about how you interact with people and how you feel you will do in a commission only job and if you would be successful in a position were you have little supervision.
