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

Financial Representative (Former Employee)

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

ConsEven 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 Senior ManagementCome 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
