    Great people for the most part. Excellent Benefits for Financial Reps. Pretty fair commissions on products. Has cool community events for members & family (Policy Holders). Flexible schedule working hours (if you do not discipline yourself to work you wont make any money).

    Very old school lead generation which is done by talking to who you know already and mailers which Reps have to pay for (no one ever replies).

    Advice to Management

    Teach your reps how to prospect a little better.

    Pros

    Fraternal company that is structured to be member focused.

    Cons

    Regional directors run thier regions like private kingdoms. They make and change the rules of the road at will and there is no consistency. Legacy building via nepatism is rampant and doesn't look good for the long term outlook of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus on members and the representatives who work with them everyday. Perks for the regional directors are already rich, managing partners need more support.
