    Pros

    Everything! If you’re already licensed and know a good market like I was then you are off to a great start.

    I truly believe any negative reviews are just people who didn’t put the effort into it. It’s not some get rich quick scheme. You make what you put into it.

    It’s best to start out with a part time job also and slowly work your way into switching to full time when you get into the flow of things and better at getting leads.

    Cons

    The people who think it’s a scam. And this isn’t really a con for the company, but it’s frustrating when people think a business that’s been around since 1977 is a scam 👌🏻

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    Primerica is great for people who are tired of working the job system. I’ve been Full Time with them over a year and I can personally say that everyone that has something bad to say don’t understand the business side of Primerica. Yes people recruit because every business does but it is not mandatory. This is not a job, it’s an opportunity for people who want to have a business that runs for them.
    No it’s not easy because you actually have to put in work(which people don’t want to do) but it’s worth it and a great part time income for those who just want to make some extra money. Our products are great,pay and taxes are great and you learn a lot about money.
    Every office is ran differently. Just because you have a bad experience with one office/agent, doesn’t mean they’re all the same or that we’re a bad company.
    Plus you get all expenses paid trips every 6 months,bonuses,new friendships and most importantly, help and educate families who really are in need of our products and opportunity.

    Cons

    People will challenge/judge you about doing the business but hey, people get judged when it comes to having kids so...
    Everyone has their opinions but opinions are not facts.

    Pros

    If you are motivated and are able to work independently than it is a great opportunity.

    Cons

    You are paid or you earn based on your production; therefore, there are dry seasons.

    Advice to Management

    The retention period or incentives could be better. You also need to advertise the company and its newer products more.

    Pros

    You're self-employed from the start, so you basically create your own schedule by setting your own appointments and your income is based on how hard you work. Great potential for residual income and broker overrides. Culture is very uplifting and encouraging without being weird, unlike most workplaces that just reprimand you when you do something wrong. I've personally received a lot of support from my team to help me get started. The best part is you can start out part-time without risking your regular job.

    Cons

    There are some sour apples and unmotivated people that unfortunately go out of their way to tarnish the name and reputation of the company. My advice is to give it a shot for yourself and if you don't like it, then quit and stay at your regular job, but at least you'll know if it's for you or not.
