    I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time (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 Management

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    The focus of Modern Woodmen is to help its members. Other financial firms are many times only concerned with selling. The clear message in everything about Modern Woodmen from the top down is this. The more you help people (by working hard, being honest and treating everyone with dignity and respect) the more you will get in return. The fraternal side of MWA is a huge asset to both it's sales force and it's customers. If you're not familiar with the "fraternal" aspect of Modern Woodmen, do some research. I've found the right place to work.

    Cons

    As is the job of selling financial intangibles, you have to work hard and put in the hours. There is a lot to learn and you must do it on the run. As for cons, relative to any other financial service job or company, none come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Management is open to conversation and quick and willing to give help and advice. My only comment would be to keep it up. Their dedication to keeping MWA members (and me) happy is a wonderful thing.
