    I have been working at LegalShield part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are so many different ways you can work this business! You can go headstrong into sales, whether is be in group settings or individually... you can take a network recruiting approach to it and build a large team under you and teach them to build under each of them, or you can balance the two and do a little of both. But the promotions, bonuses and commissions have no comparison in other muti-level marketing companies (speaking from experience) And the fact that you can stretch your business across the country pretty reasonably allows the income potential to be unlimited!

    Cons

    If you don't have a big enough "Why" or vision, it can be hard to hit the ground running. But the company offers so much support that the only way you can fail yourself it to not try and to not tap into the community of leaders.


  2. "Associate"

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth and expansion

    Cons

    It can be difficult to make money as an independent, you will need to get a large team of associates to make it big.

    Great Atmosphere

    I have been with LegalShield a little under two years and I absolutely love working here. The culture and atmosphere make LegalShield feel like a second home, you won't be disappointed if you accept a job opportunity here!

    Cons

    Our new prescription coverage seems to not cover as much as our previous one, however, I know our Benefits team is working to help resolve issues we are having with this.

    I would like to see the communication from OCE to all levels improve. I would also like to go back to the old prescription benefit we had last year.

    Communication needs improvement from the top to all levels.

    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.

    I worked at LegalShield full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
