    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at WoodmenLife full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Categorically, it is a product that helps people with understanding financial needs and a good system.

    Cons

    It is a sales job that you and only you will make or break your success for a smaller piece of the commission than if you worked with an IMO. The launch program, completing a booklet with the recruiter was the challenge for me as we were a few hours apart.

    Advice to Management

    Too much churn out.

    Current Employee - Financial Representative 

    I have been working at WoodmenLife full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Organization dedicated to doing what's right for its members. Flexible Work Schedule and *Unlimited earning potential.

    Cons

    100% Commission, takes a lot of grunt work to build a book of business. Less access to current members (book of business) than led to believe during hiring. No brand recognition- a lot of time is spent explaining who we are before even being able to get an appointment with prospects. Very little assistance from management when it comes to trying to build your business. Basically left alone without a more... seasoned veteran to lean on for joint fieldwork.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing quality representatives rather than the quantity of new reps you hire. I have seen a ton of people come and go in my short time with the organization. With such high turnover, I find myself apologizing to current members for the lack of attention they have received over the years.

    I have been working at WoodmenLife full-time

    Pros

    Patriotic Company with great values. Great people to work with. Freedom. Really your own boss. Unlimited earning potential. Initial training school is top notch.

    Cons

    All commission. Must be self motivated and be able to handle time management. Conservative underwriting. Technology is a bit behind. Not much name recognition with younger people.

    Advice to Management

    National advertising, upgrade technology.
