    Pros

    I met 2 or 3 nice, ethical people.

    Cons

    Even the long time employees told me to just show up at 8am, work until 5pm and collect my check. They said that pointing out problems only gets you fired. They were right.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the personals you hire for their expertise, or save money and hire temps.

    I have been working at Primerica (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent, depending on what department your in. The benefits are great and are very reasonably priced. You have a variety of areas to work with plenty of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Everyone's related to someone, or close friends, if you upset the wrong person it will follow you everywhere. Once you have been deemed 'blacklisted' you should go ahead and start looking for another job because they will get rid of you one way or another.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all of your employees fair, no keeping favorites; if you have 'slackers' in your area get rid of them and move on. Don't hinder the whole department just because you like someone.
