    A career oriented firm with great training and lucrative compensation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bellevue, WA

    ProsStarting directly out of college I needed to find a company with beyond measurable growth opportunities...and I found it.

    - Great compensation structure for a top performer
    - Friendly and competitive culture with high expectations, leading to high income earnings in new associates willing to put in the effort
    - Great benefits package which is among the best in the industry
    - Many travel opportunities when performing!

    Cons- not everyone does well their first year mostly because of their lack of ambition, but these people sometimes poison the pool with their attitudes and excuses.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company for a financial advisor to work with. Probably the best.

    Financial Advisor (Former Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsThe company invests more in its advisors than any other company

    ConsYou have to be a driven person to succeed in this business. First few years the pay is minimal compared to the work but in the latter years the pay exceeds most other jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor new advisors, invest more material into educating them in what exactly they need to do to succeed instead of loading them with excessive product knowledge at first.

    Best & Largest Financial Company in the World

    Financial Consultant (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    Pros216,000 Employees
    101 Million Clients
    1.5 Trillion in AUM
    Very Stable
    Open Architecture
    In Business 153 Years
    Great Training, except from my manager (he has only been with AXA for about a year)
    Great Comp if you are willing to work hard
    9th Largest Co in the world
    Beautiful offices
    401K plus every benefit you can think off

    ConsDon't work for a new manager! Even though AXA is great, my manager was worthless. Other managers are great .... my bad luck.... I got hired by the new worthless manager. If you interview with them ask: How long have you been with AXA... if less than 5 years... politely ask if you could talk to another manager.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTell your new managers to be honest with new candidates. If I had been hired by another manager, I would still work for them.
