Modern Woodmen of America: Touching lives. Securing Futures

Financial Representative (Current Employee)
Tacoma, WA (US)

I have been working at Modern Woodmen

ProsThe possibility for advancement are only limited by the amount of work that you are willing to put forth. If management is for you, than you have the best opportunity in the financial services industry to advance into management. The benefits package is amazing, there is an old-fashioned pension, which gives you an extra incentive to work hard.

ConsIf you are a person that is not good at time management, this job is not for you. Also if you are not good at keeping track of what you do, you could have problems. As you have no "boss" per-se, you need to keep careful watch of the time you use and don't use.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep being hands on, and make sure that you keep close watch on the reps that have been contracted for fewer than 6 months.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
