    Pros

    Legal Shield (aka Pre-Paid Legal, Inc) helps people all over the country to receive free legal advice at minimal cost.

    Cons

    There are no negatives to Legal Shield (the current name of Pre-Paid Legal, Inc). When you work hard, you get paid AND help other people in the process.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage the Executive Directors to help the new recruits by example. Long-term residual income happens when you sell what a customer can afford.

    Pros

    I actively worked as an Independent Associate of Pre-Paid Legal for 3 1/2 years, (2004-2007) marketing mainly as an employee benefit. Was it easy? No, not really. Was it worth it? I think so. I ended up winning incentive trips 2 out of 3 years, had the car bonus, etc. Even had a place at the black-n-gold banquet. Here's the good part. I moved from Texas to a remote part of Western Alaska. ... EIGHT YEARS LATER, I am still receiving residual income. Yes, it has diminished, but still, there are few businesses out there that continue to pay you after you stop working.

    Cons

    It's not as easy as people make it out to be. It is a job and requires hard work. Don't let anyone tell you differently.

    Advice to Management

    When will you finally open up Alaska and not simply leave us hanging?


  3. Interesting learning experience - a lot of good can be learned from the business and management. Very supportive team.

    Pros

    Management is very supportive and there is always an opportunity to learn and to advance.

    Cons

    May have to travel farther than you sometimes plan.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the opportunity and the training. Perhaps, lighten the cost of training for seasoned associates.

    Pros

    This is a place to work if you are uneducated and have no problem scamming people.
    Conventions are fun and if you are senior management with hundreds of people below you, you'll rake it in.

    Cons

    Cult
    Full of creepy people. The management is very creepy. Agree with those that there is a weird evangelistic vibe to this place. Everyone is a motivational speaker and thinks they are very special.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so slimey. Be honest.
    Full of Mormons and ver cultish

    Pros

    Opportunity, opportunity, opportunity, did I say opportunity? The person you will become . The people you can touch, impossible is nothing here.

    Cons

    The only down side is if you don't imbrace the new you, it could be a struggle, what I mean is , if thing are to get better you have to get better, and sometimes change take time

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great leadership, the best is truly yet to come here with this great company, Never give up on someone, be the leader you are trying to pour into

    Pros

    Everyone needs this service. Very affordable. Great commission structure. The law firms are excellent. You don't realize how much you need it until you have it, especially businesses.

    Cons

    better know your market. Set up as an MLM which turns a lot of people off. your upline may not know any more about how to sell this service than you do.

    Advice to Management

    Better training and associate support would be great, otherwise a wonderful company to work with.
