Interning at Thrivent gave me the opportunity to improve upon multiple technical and interpersonal skills. The internship program provided me with exposure to company executives and gave me flexibility in the projects I was assigned. Overall, a great experience.
The work can be rewarding but it takes years to build the clientele. For personal reasons, I did not stay with it long enough to achieve success. It was a great learning experience and I believe I am still benefitting personally from what I learned about financial management.
Regional Director of Operations (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – April 5, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Thrivent and was saddened to be laid off as part of their field restructuring recently. However, I am a firm believer in the strategy behind their mission and objective! I worked remotely with occasional travel and had the best leadership team.

As a financial representative in Thrivent you spend a large portion of your time calling clients or prospects to meet and run them through what they know as a "connect" where they introduce the company and the benefits of becoming a member and how the advisor can help guide them towards financial security. Based on client needs and wants you sell them Thrivent products (most likely life insurance if your starting off) and get paid on the commission of those sales.
Enjoyable work environment with a great work/life balance

Thrivent Financial pays a lot of attention to each employee, and does a great job of making sure you have a good balance between work and family. They put effort that is easy to see into promoting diversity and generosity in the workplace.
I reported my boss to senior management for dishonest dealing
Financial Advisor, (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – February 27, 2018
I reported my boss for dishonest dealing. He told me he didn't have clients they were employees and their job was to pay for both his houses and his yacht. I later found out I was the 3rd person that had worked in his office that had documented and exposed his dishonest dealings. They waited 6 months and then let me go. What a great Christian organization.
President (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – January 20, 2018
Thrivent is a terrific company to work for, with mid western values and a stellar reputation in the financial field. The tempo is more laid back than a traditional insurance/financial company. God is central to everything they do, which is crucial to the Christians that work there. There is nothing hard about working for Thrivent. For a Lutheran, there is no other company on earth that can offer what Thrivent offers.
Great culture and HUGE financial upside.
The water fountain is very difficult to drink from.
