    Pros

    Positive environment
    Great Compensation Contracts
    Self-improvement highly encouraged
    Training is personalized to every individual
    Coaching and mentor-ship as opposed to management

    Cons

    No salaries, this is a business opportunity, not a job
    You must be highly self-motivated
    You must be entrepreneurial and drive to own your own business
    Your weaknesses will be exposed and you will need to work on yourself

    Advice to Management

    Not a whole lot of advice for management other than more in depth training for people who have never looked into starting a business and may need extra help.

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful. It's a team effort. It tests your 'hustle' skills such as communication, drive...etc. It helps build the areas you are mostly weak in.

    Cons

    You have to be strong minded and willing to handle working with them. You have to be dedicated and want more. Stay focus and build your skills and be willing to learn.

    Pros

    When I was prospected by a team leader at Primerica, they made it sound like a dream. Get licensed, get your clients, and you'll be set. I quit my full time job to work with Primerica, struggled to get licensed and had to rely on prospecting to make money. It is a pyramid sceme through and through. Do not work for Primerica.

    Cons

    Commision based only, rely solely on prospects, you need another job to make ends meet.

    I have been working at Primerica full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to serve families and help them to get their finances together. You get to learn how to speak in front of others and confidence within yourself because of self development that you will be surrounded by. You will also obtain a life license and if you want to advance a investment license. You can also move to the Regional Vice President Position and run your own office.

    Cons

    The only downside (if that is a downside) is you must understand that it is straight commissions

    Advice to Management

    All depends on you reaching the guidelines you will be presented for each advancement. It is very straight forward.
