    Pros

    They're no. 1 in the United States for 12 years - trophies to prove it - and no. 1 in Canada for 15 years. Always on the edge, they're perfecting their approach every single day.

    Cons

    Truth be told, I don't have one.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    It's an educational approach to a complex and sensitive subject. Great support from home office and knowledgeable teammates. You work your own schedule and control your own promotions. Help as many people as you want! The possibilities are endless!

    Cons

    This opportunity is not for the weak, unmotivated person who looks for things to be handed to this. You are dealing with people so if you don't like people then that would be your con. If you do not believe in hard work, that is another con for you. Otherwise, all hard work (productive work) is recognized and rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep pushing up people as Art Williams charged us to do!

    Pros

    Set your own hours Build your business any way you want to Objectively better financial products than most of the industry

    Cons

    The company is essentially set up as a pyramid scheme. More company resources are allocated towards hiring as many people as possible instead of supporting the salesforce.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the "Recruiting" aspect of the business and focus more on the the inside team at the home office

    Pros

    I have to say that I am more impressed with Primerica than I could have imagined when I started working with the company last year. Not having a financial background, I would have never imagined that I could have the opportunity to enter the financial services industry. I love Primerica's "learn as you earn" philosophy and the opportunity they provide to help so many middle income families get out of debt, protect their income and prepare for their future. I have been impressed with the quality of training provided from the start, and Primerica's technological advancements are off the charts in the financial industry. This is truly a company worth investing my life in, and I don't say that lightly. I've worked for many companies and many people, and I've never experienced the fulfillment I get here. I love the concern I see in every level of Primerica for people, and the worthy Crusade we are on. I love that we change people's lives for the better in so many ways. And I love the fact that just like I was offered the opportunity to join Primerica, I can offer that same opportunity to others. Where else in the financial services industry can you do that? And where else in the financial services industry do you really matter that much? Come join us, it's a lot of fun and we're making a huge difference!

    Cons

    I don't consider it so much a con, as an opportunity to grow through adversity, but the early going can be difficult. People don't initially see you as a "finance guy"... or "finance girl" for that matter. They see you as the guy they work with every day, or the girl they've known all their lives who's never expressed to them much interest in financial matters. That passes pretty quickly, though, when you get out the door and start showing them the benefits of compound interest and how to protect their families, as they begin to shed debt and build wealth. I'm not saying this business is easy, but it is definitely worth it! The sky's the limit, unless you limit yourself. You'll get as much out of Primerica as you put into it. You are your own boss and your success depends on you and how badly you want it. Some may consider that a con, but I see it as more opportunity for those of us who are willing to get out there and... in the words of our founder... DO IT!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job! I'm excited about this company and the path we're on!
