    Pros

    Make your own schedule, determine your own income.
    Not for everybody.

    Cons

    If you are not self motivated, or don't have good trainers in your office, you will struggle.
    Not for everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication from head office to the field would be a big bonus.

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities for income potential

    Cons

    Poor training, make sure you find someone that cares to train you, not just line their pockets

    Advice to Management

    Review your RVPS on skill sets, not just how many sells they close, people they recruit.

    I worked at Primerica part-time

    Pros

    Good trainings that aimed to build the team mindset.
    Good to get the insurance license materials.

    Cons

    A large emphasis on getting rich quick.
    Not transparent from the beginning. The interview was informal and I was charged for courses and material without fully understanding the extent of what I was getting in to.
    The 3*3 method they repeat to a newcomer doesn't tell it all- you don't get paid until you get all three of your own people to sign on. The person that gets the money is the person that is training you.

    I have been working at Primerica part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I’m being financially educated, by doing my FNA.

    Cons

    Their approach are not transparent on who they are from the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Shouldn’t the agents sell the name brand instead on not making it clear on whom they working for?

    I have been working at Primerica full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The environment, work ethic, benefits, compensation, and rewards are the bet I have and will ever receive. I love the freedom and opportunity to grow as fast and far as you want. There is no other option out there that allows it, those who say you can't make it far are the ones who have fear over faith.

    Cons

    No downsides if you keep a strong mindset and positive environment around you! To be successful in anything, you have to put some type of effort into it.

    Pros

    Tough Minded Optimists with strong work ethic, hard work with no guarantee pay - Work entails bouts of rejection met with long stretches of doubt and fear. Constant repetition of basic truths met with blank stares and chances of making it are slim.
    HONOR, RECOGNITION & EXTREME WEALTH IF SUCCESSFUL

    Cons

    Gotta have fortitude to succeed in this business. People tend to be weak and easily discouraged. Keep Pushing to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT CHANGE A THING!!
