    Pros

    Great opportunity to build your own business. You control how much you work and therefore how much you earn. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to learn about managing their own finances and helping others to do the same. Great place for those with an entrepreneurial mindset.

    Cons

    If you aren't recruiting/getting qualified referrals you aren't going to build as fast or strong. Once your warm market dries up, it may be difficult to prospect for those without an entrepreneurial mindset. Doesn't offer car/home insurance nor does it offer mortgages. However, it does offer a consolidation of a mortgage through a lending partner.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at re-testing/increasing training for veteran representatives. Some could benefit from a refresher course, as their current ideals and understandings do not correlate with what may be present in our current financial landscape.

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Head office is cheap, will not spend money for proper office equipment you are asked to use hold equipment plus they treat employees poorly with low pay and little pay increases. Additionally, they are not organized. If there is a new regulatory requirement the company is scrambling at the last minute to be compliant with the rules which increases the amount of stress for a couple weeks.

    I worked at Primerica part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A good opportunity to make a good living, just bad timing and perhaps not field i was looking for at the time

    Cons

    takes a while to get started and requires initial investment to achieve license requirement. completely commission based so a bad sales month means little to no income

    Pros

    There are no pros to "working" with companies like this, they push you to sell insurance products to your "personal network" which means pestering your friends and family until they acquiesce.

    Cons

    This is not a job but rather a pushy multi-level marketing scheme. Their business model relies on bringing in as many "sales people" as possible so the people at the top of the chain make more money. Please stay far away from this company.
