    Complete control over the hours you work is a major plus. The financial education is great, I've learned a lot in just a short time. Great pay once you advance

    There are no real cons here if you are positive and have a good work ethic

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Great home office and technical support for the field. Lives up to the saying "You are in business for yourself but not by yourself."

    Cons

    Even though it is necessary, compliance should be a little more interesting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The advancement system is straightforward but you have to make the effort to get your effort. You are promoted based on your own efforts and work.

    I have been working at Primerica full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Start up cost is almost nothing! Licenses are paid for by the company as well as the study materials. No quotas. The products and services are of value to the consumer. You are the boss. Chance to build teams and develop as a leader. The worst that can happen is that you gain a financial education. Income is production based.

    Cons

    Bad reps ruin the opportunity for those who want to better their lives. Income is production based.

    I have been working at Primerica as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    No production requirements. Help people on your own time and get paid well to do it. Resume's don't matter here, good or bad. Compensation is amazing for products that are actually beneficial to people.

    Cons

    Entitled job mentalities don't work here. Resume's don't matter here, good or bad. Negative people with incorrect misconceptions can discourage the positive ones that see how unique and special this company is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are causing people to think this is a job or MLM, then stop. This is much better and way more important than either of those.

    Pros

    Allows you to be your own boss (to an extent); you set your own hours and work as much or as little as you want; opportunity to have ownership; stock options at certain levels; you own your own business

    Cons

    In regards to "be your own boss": you are limited by your up-line at times which can be very frustrating; example: you cannot order your own applications--your up-line must do this for you (seems trivial but it can be a hassle); commission only--can be bad when things are slow; Primerica does not advertise and does not allow you to advertise either (this allows a more personal experience with clients and cheaper premiums but also forces you to find all of your clients--it is extremely unlikely that you will be contacted by someone who wants to do business with you if you have not contacted them first);

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more than RVPs to order applications. Give the down-lines more freedom.
