    I have been working at LegalShield full-time

    Pros

    Anyone can do this if they are dedicated and work hard. There is massive opportunity for exponential growth. The ability to work from home and be with your kids, your family, travel and go where you want because you can work where you want is unbelievable. No basa and no one hanging over your shoulder telling you where and when to be. Single shield gives massive bonuses for work you're doing already such as $10K bonuses, $40K bonuses, obviously smaller ones too such as $360 bonuses, $180 bonuses, free all expense paid trips, etc.

    Cons

    No company is completely perfect and can always improve.

    Pros

    Great product and excellent customer service ethic. Loyal employee base for those who are part of the 'family'. Great perks at headquarters.

    Cons

    Competing priorities between corporate opportunities and network marketing/direct selling. Communication outside home office sucks. Trying to hard to pretend it's not a direct selling company to brokers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees at ALL locations as valuable. Don't try to manage corporate and direct selling side the same way.

    Pros

    This is a hard one because there really isn't anything positive to say. But, I will say this, they are slick and come across as very professional.

    Cons

    There is simply no money to be made in LegalShield. Here’s what the other reviews by salespeople aren’t telling you: YOU CAN”T MAKE MONEY SELLING LEGALSHIELD! At least not enough to do it full time. Based on their own income disclosure, salespeople with 0-2 years experience only made $800 per year. And ALL salespeople, regardless of experience, make less than $1000/year. That is what they are promoting as a life changing “opportunity”! But, what about the people who stick with it even longer? Surely there’s hope if you stick to it, right? Well, based on their own numbers, people who stick around and stay at it for 5 years see their income jump to $10,000/year. In other words, if this were a part time job, working 20 hours a week, you’re only making $9.62/hr. According to the company's own income disclosure, the average associate only made $878 in 2015. Even associates that have been in the business for over 20 years only made $8000 to $10,000 for the whole year. That's great PART TIME income, but they market the opportunity as a way to get rich. A way to sit back as your downline creates passive income for you. It's simply not possible. It just doesn't happen.

    Advice to Management

    OK. What about sticking at it another 5 years? That will boost your income up another $3000 to $13000/year or $12.50/hr if you do it part time or just $6.25/hr if it were a full time job. OK. So, what about those people who stay at it, working hard at their LS business for over 20 years? Those people, on average, based on numbers released by LS themselves, actually see their average annual income drop back down by $3000/year for people who market to groups. The sad, simple fact is that 99.7% of people who get involved in these things lose money. This is data directly from a 2017 report from MLM Direct Selling, the industry itself admits it’s a loser. 99.9% of Amway/Quixtar salespeople lose money. 99.42% of Herbalife salespeople lose money. By the time you calculate in the cost of training, material, licensing fees, and your time that you waste on this “opportunity”, the loss rate for Lsss is probably even worse. Sure, you can always find the rare example of the people who make money at this stuff, but keep in mind that appearances are sometimes deceiving. That car that they “won” was actually on a lease. That vacation “prize” was just a discounted trip. So, before you sign up to be a member of anyone’s “team”, ask to see the numbers, not promises, but real numbers from the company. Don’t listen to a sales pitch and be won over by what COULD happen. Look at what typically does happen and you will see that it almost never lives up to the hype.


  4. "This Review is for the Associates, Not the Attorneys"

    I have been working at LegalShield part-time

    Pros

    Attorney Service is Stellar, I've used them a few times so far.

    Cons

    Associates, many of them, don't give a crap to help you and are rude in the forums for Associate help. I'm going it on my own. The lady I was hired under is a loser. Others, a few local ones, are in a clique and would release information I was asking about before I joined. Like how does the Bankruptcy work if I join? One man and his upline, both been with LS for decades, could not seem to get me an answer. It was all BS, they did not want to tell me that LS will refer you to an outside Attorney at 25% off. Less than classy people that I want nothing to do with.

    Some associates have a lack of integrity and need to be terminated.

    Need to have more field trainers leading by example.

    I worked at LegalShield (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company provides great legal access for what it's worth. For $24 a month you can get access to a team of lawyers to answer any questions that you may have. In 85% of the cases they are very good. Like any service there is a fail rate, but LegalShield ain't so bad.

    Cons

    As a Network Marketer there are lack of support. You have to be very careful as to who you sign up to business with. You're upline is your lifeline. If they don't know what they are doing or they don't know how to lead, it will affect you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training.

    Pros

    Offers a service everyone needs. Tailored legal and ID theft benefits is an extraordinary service. Fun business to be a part of.

    Cons

    Not everyone can be on their game everyday so some customers get great service while others have a bad experience with the attorneys. Negative feed back is usually because of the attorney firms lack of a great "bedside manner". Fix this and we will continue to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Negative feed back is usually because of the attorney firms lack of a great "bedside manner". Fix this and we will continue to be successful. They have to understand, they put their pants own the same way we do. We should be special to the attorneys. Look at the consumer report reviews. Select the right candidate for trainers. Train product knowledge! "How to close" training should be an advance course.
