    Pros

    A lot of people are calling this a pyramid scheme or MLM program. These people have no idea what those things are, it's just words that they have heard before. Let me tell you why it is 100% not a pyramid scheme or MLM program. First, you only get paid for policies written. You absolutely do not get paid for recruiting people. Second, you own your own book of business. If you leave, it goes with you. Third, you...

    Cons

    I don't know that it is a con, but it does require a high level of commitment, an understanding of yourself and your goals, dedication, study, and hard work. And patience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep teaching the system.

      You get to meet people, go nice places

      Cons

      I was almost scammed into this pyramid scheme, because of my over excitement to meet the CEO (who was my idol before this happened) and to work in his company. I was a huge follower of this company’s CEO , Patrick Bet David. One day my brother had met a person who worked in his agency and was willing to recruit me , seeing how excited I was. This person offered me to get trained...

      Pros

      I love the awesome support of our CEO, brokers, everyone. The pay and opportunity is very good, IF you're self-driven, make no excuses, believe in yourself, and don't listen to other broke, small-minded people who try to kill your dreams. I started Part time while working with the Postal Service, making $17/per hour. Once I was making MORE part time with PHP, I fired my boss at the Postal Service and came full time with...

      If you let small-minded, uneducated people tell you that you won't be successful with this business and you believe them, you won't make it.

      Pros

      I get to protect families and loved ones from the financial burden of losing a loved one like I did at 6 1/2 months pregnant! He didn't have life insurance. "Not a pyramid scheme" it's Multi-Level marketing... there's a difference. I help people reduce credit card debt, and student loan debt... and myself! I help people come up with a retirement plan 401k's can't compare with. I get to work with a team who is just...

      Cons

      Everyone starts from the bottom... but that's also what makes it great. Not everyone who joins PHP ACTUALLY sees the importance of what we do for families here at PHP, and That's why they fail. (No benefits, but with this company, it will teach you where to put your money, and you can get licensed in life, and health to sell it to yourself!)

      Advice to Management

      I honestly can't think of anything! What you do for all Entrepeneurs, and families is an opportunity like no other! I honestly can't see why so many give up. Because they would rather work at Starbucks as a Barista, or sell iPhones at a kiosk? I saw these reviews, but I also see the Big Picture of what this company does for families, and that's why I'm here.

      You need to recruit people just to go up in position. They claim to not be a MLM when clearly you are. They claim to not be a pyramid scheme when obviously you are. They claim to be all over TV, when you haven't. They claim to be the most high paying company when in reality you start as a 30% when other company start from a 50% to 80% commission.

      Pros

      Free training, competitive environment, great team spirit.

      Cons

      The business model on recruiting more agents is the biggest issue, they get an agent (like myself ) and to dig deep to the top 25 people that I know personally from friends/ family to sell to. I feel used, and that is the whole pyramid scheme for them to recruit me and connect a lot more people through my contacts. You pay $150 to get into the company ( basically everyone...

      Php agency doesn't create a product/ service. It is a distribute company in hopes of recruiting as much life insurance agents as possible to spread the word.

      Pros

      Unlimited potential to make as much capital as you would like. You ALWAYS have a mentor and I personally suggest you put in a lot of time and work. No pyramid scheme here!! Don't believe those who say it is, you cannot fault their ignorance. Not everyone sees the value or experiences that these mentors can contribute to help you build your team.

      Cons

      Only downside is the studying and learning to get your license, but well worth the outcome that follows.

      Advice to Management

      Keep on keeping on!!
