Modern Woodmen is a great place to work

District Agent (Current Employee)

I have been working at Modern Woodmen

ProsFor the home office staff I am sure it is a great place to work with lots of job security. The field staff has its challenges which is always true for life insurance sales. But MWA has some of the best prospecting tools available if you learn how to use them. This market is under going tremendous change with many younger customers buying online. The overall customer satisfaction with MWA is very high! While MWA is very conservation they have recently approved and supported using social media sites for marketing, a bold move for them. They had their best year for new business ever in 2010, so they must be doing something right!

ConsThe strong reliance on referral based client growth only could be improved with advocating and supporting more modern prospecting techniques.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the communications open with the next generation of agents and managing agents in order to keep up with the accelerating marketing chances in the industry. Consider online marketing and direct purchases, the "people when you want them, technology when you don't" approach tied to a strong field staff sales support.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
