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 Management

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.

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

    I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Long history...fraternal benefits...cares about the elderly

    Cons

    Straight commission, never any fresh leads, cold calling, lack of leadership from managing partner and regional director. Upper management uses and abuses "young" talent.

    Advice to Management

    Update the company structure and get some marketing. No one knows who Modern Woodmen is.
