    I have been working at Modern Woodmen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is great leadership in the company, but specifically at the Indiana Firm. Training of new advisors is very much 1 on 1. They only hire a select few financial advisors each year, this allows them to commit the necessary resources to ensure that each new hire is successful.
    Compensation is healthy. You truly in charge of your own business and given plenty of flexibility. Many of the best products in the industry.

    Cons

    If you do not have an entrepreneurial and philanthropic heart, Modern Woodmen is not for you. If you don't want to be in control of your income and independence, Modern Woodmen is not right for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to only hire a few people each year. Continue the high level of support that you provide.

    Support your outside admin staff as strongly as you do your Regional Directors.
