Thrivent is still stuck on who they were as a Lutheran organization 110+ years ago and not who they are, or who they want to be now. Lutheranism is dying. Saw so many pastors who wanted nothing to do with the work we were mandated to do when the checkbook wasn't as free and open. LISTEN to what the field is trying to convey to Home Office. RESPECT those who haven't worked there since they were fresh out of college or brought in under "Uncle Joe" who was a total superstar. Stop trying to roll out all these catchy campaigns and focus areas - because they are LAME and looked very forced. Finally, get your field leadership some comprehensive training on what can and cannot be done with employees and HR issues. Ridiculous to let egos get in the way but it seems to be the norm rather than the exception.

Some get a book of business, some don't, depends on market saturation in my opinion. But don't confuse getting a book of business with getting a base salary, this is not the case. If a book of business is provided, it tends to be service work for members with unknown or assumed low potential. Prospecting is critical to the new hires success, they want you to have a couple of hundred folks to call on immediately to launch your career.
