    Pros

    Well, they pay for your licensing exams.

    Cons

    They have the most expensive insurance rates.
    The employ inexperienced people who only care about selling you insurance (which is not competitive) and selling you securities with high front load charges.

    Advise, do not deal with them.

    Advice to Management

    Have some decency.

    Pros

    Making an impact on middle income America. Meeting a need in the marketplace vs just a want. Doing something you can be proud of. Building a family business, qualify for ownership and ultimately leave a legacy (a money machine) to your children. Empower & coach individuals in starting their own business. Part time option, paid for licenses, no quotas or time requirements, leadership development, mentorship, virtually no start up capital required, no experience needed to get started, leadership has a financial interest in new reps earning income. Great home office support, fantastic technology and paperless office. Great partnerships with the largest and most respected financial institutions. Educational & multi product approach. No cost to the client for the education and financial needs analysis. Opportunity to help the client earn additional income and help them reach their financial goals.
    All the ways one can get paid. Unlimited income potential, passive income, override income, residual income, stock grants, and bonuses.

    Cons

    You actually have to work. The lazy, unmotivated, un-coachable, credibility-lacking person will not win here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job!

    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.

    Pros

    If you are dedicated, hardworking, and committed to winning PRI can be a great fit for you. Income potential is uncapped and with hard work can make six figures.

    Cons

    You are your own boss. No base salary, so it all starts and stops with you and your team of recruits.
