    I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
