    Great company to work for, but you must be an insurance salesman.

    I worked at Modern Woodmen as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    --Great company values
    --Extra (fraternal) benefits
    --Gives back to the communities
    --Unlimited potential
    --Set your own schedule, be your own boss!

    Cons

    Even though Modern Woodmen is a great company with a long track record, it is insurance first, investments later. In other words, you may be able to take on the function of an advisor and sell securities, but the insurance will always come first (that's how benefits, contracting, etc are determined). If you're an insurance salesman, Modern Woodmen's insurance is pretty competitive. But if you want to be a little more "rounded" or want to focus on financial planning and/or advisory services, you may want to consider looking elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a compensation/contract structure that allows financial planners/advisors to flourish a little more. You've got an awesome company, but the advisory/planning services aren't on par with brokerage/advisor firms.

    I worked at Modern Woodmen

    Pros

    no ceiling. Chance to really make a difference in people's lives, not just make money. Community service. Great and supportive work atmosphere.

    Cons

    No ceiling but also no floor since it is all commission based. Not a well known company and its not for profit so at the beginning there is a lot of cold calling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is always there and can be relied upon. Management people also started right where everybody else did so they always know exactly what you are going through.
