    I worked at Primerica part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work as often as you want or as little as you want...they offer training , trips , great financial opportunities

    Cons

    Exploit personal friendships for financial gain , it's a typical pyramid scheme right down to even when you ask if it's a pyramid scheme. Response given...well what isn't a pyramid scheme , they got me hook line and sinker don't be next! They offer training as a cover up to try and sell anything they offer to your friends and family with hope to get them to give you leads for you to gain off of. They throw trips , prizes , and other glamorous items at you as incentive to keep going and make more money for the people above you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work , it seems like a great way to make money but I value my personal relationships way too much to put them on the line for financial gain!

    Pros

    Part time or full time opportunity which gives incredible flexibility to work as much or as little as you choose
    Company pays for your licensing and education while you learn and train, on the job, how to help people save, invest and be properly protected.
    Great, exciting and fun work environment..best I've ever encountered

    Cons

    If you don't like competing for amazing vacations and cash bonuses, it might be hard to stay motivated
    If you don't like helping people improve their financial standings, this opportunity may not be the right place for someone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!!!
