    Mission is fixing an injustice in the financial world. Great pay for doing what is right. No need to recruit to make money. Pushes those who want to win in life to evolve into better people.

    Pros

    *Super positive environment, there are many people from all backgrounds, beliefs, ages and stages of their life. *If you decide to explore what it is about simply googling is not going to do it. You need to spend the $128 to take the courses. It teaches you ethics, taxes, insurances etc... It normally would cost you for the same courses in college 1200+. Even if you don't want to be apart of it the education of your...

    Cons

    *How ignorant people get when you ask for help for just training. *You have to work hard!!! *Realizing who your true friends and family are.

    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Primerica is a great company to work within. Anyone who says it's a scam says so because they quit. If you listen to them you are letting them control and affect a great opportunity that you will miss out on and you won't be able to help families with all the great products we offer. If these people who slam Primerica had a credible voice they wouldn't be slamming a company that does nothing but good for our clients....

    Cons

    You have to deal with people . Which is a pro and a con...and you have to deal with uneducated people calling it a scam ..people who can't have success here can't have success anywhere because they are quitters...it's a great opportunity to help others and to build an amazing career..I am blessed to have found this company .

    Advice to Management

    Primerica ..you are the future of financial services and I am proud to be a part of this great company !!

    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - People are investing in you. The support system in Primerica is 100x better then anywhere else I have worked. Your team will teach you all you need to know to succeed. - You make your own schedule. This was very important to me, as I was working 70 hours a week, and still not making the money I needed to before I started working with Primerica. - You determine your income. You get paid for the work you do. Great...

    Cons

    - It does take work, anything that is worth it does. I really see this as a pro, if you have a good work ethic it is impossible to fail.

    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The company is part of the Financial Service Industry. Financial Service industry is one of the largest most profitable industries in the world. Having education and experience in the financial services, it is rewarding working with clients and other company partnerships. Unlimited amount of income, like any other business. Primerica helps reps be in business for themselves but not by themselves. Listed on...

    Cons

    Anyone who is new to the financial service industry, has to become licensed. This turns some people off who are not willing to self develop. The licensing program contains tests that some may not be able to achieve. This is a business model, not a job. Anyone looking to work 9-5 should look elsewhere from finance not just Primerica. Most financial service companies positions are commission based. Commission...

    Advice to Management

    Every office is independent owned and operated. Primerica is a brokerage model and experiences may vary from office to office. Do not paint all the offices with the same brush.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, lots of support from Primerica head office. They pay for all your education! Primerica helps you achieve your dreams, whether they are large 6 figure dreams or just part time income dreams. The only way you don't succeed in Primerica is because you did not try hard enough. Primerica will support you with videos for training, help you help people become financially independent. Nothing is...

    Cons

    There are not downsides. If you don't succeed it wasn't because of Primerica, it was your poor aditiued and unwillingness to learn.

    Pros

    I have been part-time in Primerica for almost 6 years. I love that I can work around my kids' school schedule, make good money when I do work and have such a positive impact on the families I work with. Primerica is a company of integrity. with great products and great financial education for families.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone. You have to be willing to change from an employee to an entrepreneurial mindset. Earning a wage vs earning commissions is a different way of working. I love that Primerica lets you work your own hours part-time, this is perfect for me and I have built a big enough business that I make money every month without having to work too hard at it. When I started I was hungry to change and grow, so that...

    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Let's start with some facts, first and foremost Primerica is not a scam, MLM or a Pyramid scheme...Primerica is a Pure Business opportunity, the reason why some people put bad reviews is they don't fully understand the business Model so they compare it to something they experienced in the past or they ask a cousin or an uncle etc. and they hear from people that don't know much about our business, If you want to know...

    Cons

    There are really no cons, the cons are the person that enrols in Primerica, if you are lazy and don't like working hard for your money or someone that wants huge results for very little efforts then it's not for you, just don't complain if you don't work hard and blame the company, you can only blame yourself if you don't make it...the support system here is amazing and tremendous, we have over 300,000 sq/ft head quarter...
