    Pros

    Work around your schedule.

    Cons

    It's all based on your creditability with your friends and family. They strive on your good name to sell the product. I tried talking to many people about it, but wouldn't convince. Also the legal advice is a joke. They didn't even want to help me with my ticket because it would be a waste of time to the attorney.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sugar coating that it's not an MLM

    I worked at LegalShield full-time

    Pros

    The CEO is sincere and approachable. He is a visionary with traditional values but very aware and in tune with our modern culture. He consistently tries to motivate and inspire the entire company to think outside of the box.

    I have a friend for life! The Recognition, Marketing, Analytics and Executive Assistant teams are phenomenal!

    Cons

    This review is based on my employment within Network Sales and Marketing

    - Lack of Communication - lacks the ability to lead by example or to communicate effectively with anyone outside of the Executive offices. There have been numerous occasions where I have needed information in order to handle a particular situation and would not get a response.

    - Growth Impairment - leadership in this department sought me out about an opportunity to take on a position. I was interviewed and all was well until I was asked about compensation. I was told that that they would not and could not pay my salary requirements.

    - Nepotism - The department has just hired three new SNVPs and one of them is directly related to senior leadership.

    - Retaliation and Lack of Professionalism- I was recently let go because of an email that I was asked to send by senior management. Instead of jumping to conclusions the company should take the time to investigate the facts. Lashing out at employees in front of colleagues is unprofessional and creates a hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Just do the right thing. Take care of our people. Sometimes things don't work out and sometimes we do have to move on. Do the right thing by those who have ALWAYS tried their best to do right by you. Don't take people for granted. Don't try to silence a voice. If Legalshield is really trying to to what Mr. Stonecipher set out to do...then it is to protect the rights of all people! That definitely includes their employees.

    I have been working at LegalShield part-time

    Pros

    Independence and true sense of satisfaction by helping people who are truly in need. I began as a customer (back in 2001) when it was PrePaid Legal, and I was hooked...it's REALLY what the company claims. Proud to be a part of a great American success story!

    Cons

    A 1099 income, training is basic, but like any opportunity, it's what you make it-
    If it were 'easy', everyone would be pursuing it...
    Also in Ma.....you are required to maintain a property/casualty license, a necessary evil

    Advice to Management

    More local training, but I realize in license states, there are expenses involved and someone usually RVP has to incur the cost of a facility, etc.

    Pros

    I am new to this business as an independent associate but what made me choose them was using the legal services membership I had bought from them. I used their attorneys a few times and I was very impressed. My passion in life is educating and helping others so I realized LegalShield not only gives me all the tools to help others but to help myself lucratively and comfortably. It could pay you so well if you are goal oriented and organized. Amazing training and support is provided also.

    Cons

    Nothing against this company honestly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do. Thank you.
