    I have been working at Primerica full-time

    Pros

    Taught me tons of things that the 1% don't want us little people to know. I have earned a great deal about my person self development and how much was needed to survive here. I have earned enough money now that I have been joyfully kicked off my CPP disability. I have made too much money, that is not something most people who are physically disabled get to say. I learned that my husband and I had the incorrect form of insurances plus I learned that I was able to get an RDSP which I was allowed for 6 years before someone with Primerica was referred to me. I learned that if I control of my own disability it would not have been gone after 5 years from my employer. The amazing things I have learned here and been able to assist other people with changes not only my life forever but also theirs.

    Cons

    The only Con here is the fact that not everyone sees what we really do and they say no, however this is not on me.

    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Amazing atmosphere and solid ethics & compliance - Professional mentorship, self development and business building - Financial Education and licensing - Doing what is right 100% of the time for people - Right the wrongs in the industry - Opportunities for extremely high income, bonuses and passive income - Flexible hours - Equal Opportunity and full, hands-on training - Equity, Ownership and Stock options - Highly regulated and respected company - Opportunity to start a business and build a company within a company with no limitations. - Travelling, conventions, company incentives and all-expense-paid vacations. - Ability for work with whomever you want in your business, spouses/family/friends - Extremely secure and recession proof industry

    Cons

    - Like any business, It can take time to gain traction, keeping focused is key. - dealing with rejection, you need thick skin - It can get Repetitive, some like this, some don’t. - Dealing with Negative opinions. This is not exactly a con, however its worth mentioning that you need to have a strong conviction in knowing what we do is genuinely beneficial to families everywhere, you need to see for yourself that what we do is right and what you are working towards will benefit you and your family for generations to come. Once you understand where we came from, where we are going, what your goals are and what we have done and continue to do here, you will see why our competition does everything it can to besmirch us and why we just keep pushing forward for the crusade.
