    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.

    Pros

    Total independence, fraternal network, awesome support. When you do well, the benefits to the job are great.

    Cons

    Have to come up with your own clients, but that's about it in terms of on the job cons. You have to account for dips in income by not maximizing your enjoyment during good months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I love working here. Although there are cons to the system, the benefits outweigh them overall.

    Pros

    Great training, great management, ability to make lots of money. And best of all the benefits are exceptional. The fraternalism is what makes the company different. Even the top of the company at home office are incredible people and will sit down and have a conversation with you whenever, they might even just call you up for no particular reason. The training is top notch starting with the MP and RD. The company truly does what is in the best interest of the client.

    Cons

    Tough to get started, but if you are willing to put the work in it will be very beneficial to you and your family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on rocking
