    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Primerica as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to travel to conferences in Louisiana and Atlanta. Helped me break out of my introvert shell. They also paid for my insurance classes and license. Supervisors were very helpful.

    Cons

    It is a multi level marketing scheme so be aware. They will tell you other wise because their jobs/ salary depends on it. Many do not want to or cannot leave due to sunk cost of spending money to buy the products. They target low income households.
