    Experienced coaches and mentors that are always willing to support you
    You are in control of your own promotions - meet certain expectations and your promotion is automatic
    Make residual income - work from last year that pays you this year
    Company pays for your licensing
    Can work part-time without compromising your current career
    Paid company trips to 5 star resorts for high performers

    Cons

    If working hard for success is a "con"...

    You have to be mentally tough
    You have to be able to handle rejection
    You have to be willing to self-improve
    You must be coachable
    Integrity is a must
    Credibility is a must
    You need to finish licensing to start making income from life insurance and mutual funds (legal requirement)

    I have been working at Primerica part-time

    Pros

    Make your own schedule, commission pay allows you to be properly compensated for your effort, great doorway into the financial industry, easy way to get your investment license, you own your book of business, plenty of people to go to for advice, easy to be promoted to a higher position (I was promoted within the first month), no quotas to be met.

    Cons

    No "guaranteed" income (all commission-based). Not really a con if you have a strong work ethic. It is not hard to make money in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent business model, keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Primerica full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ability to start part-time; no quotas; no cap on income. . . the company pays for your licensing, training and E & O insurance costs. Ability to expand and grow a business with residual income that can be passed on for generations. The licensing and on-going training alone will teach you more about personal finance than any college regimen--for FREE. The leadership in the company is phenomenal! Humble, self-less and truly invested in helping everyone win!

    Cons

    Need to elevate your thinking! Gotta grow yourself and your people skills. . . not real cons if you think about it. :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for your integrity! Thank you for this amazing opportunity and fighting for our ability to separate from Citi and become an independent, publicly-traded stand-out!

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

    Pros

    Primerica is the only place where being HUMBLE is a requirement for success. You get positive incentives so you work hard and succeed. When you're an employee you work so you do not get fired.

    Cons

    You need excellent leadership to succeed in Primerica. You must be a very good learner and must either have or develop leadership skills. You must not get distracted with other things. Always ask yourself, "would I do this if I was an employee for a company?" For example, would I wake up at 11am on weekdays if I was an employee? Of course not, then don't do it here! You're your own boss! Your working to make YOUR dreams come true, not anybody else's. Which means you should demand even more of yourself than your boss ever would!
