    I worked at AXA Advisors as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Definitely not a job for someone straight out of college to get into unless you are willing to really bust your butt and probably be broke for a year or two. If you are willing to put all the effort into it, you WILL get results but until then, its really rough.

    Cons

    Depending on your mentor, your experience here may be a complete waste of time. If your mentor does suck, go latch on to somebody else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yes interns are replaceable but treat them well and you can help them help you! Its a win-win situation!

    Finance Intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    Internship was a valuable learning experience. Largely highly legit tasks and no getting coffee. Great resume booster.

    Cons

    Unpaid, responsibilities didn't vary greatly so after a while, not much left to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top talent often requires compensation as many students will not work for free.

    Intern!

    I worked at AXA Advisors as an intern

    Pros

    The culture in the office is great. Solid people around you looking to help and build your career. The managers are there to help, since you make them money.

    Cons

    The downfall is that it is very tough to get started in the industry, but if you can do so it is very lucrative. As a young or recent college graduate be ready to be working 50-60 hours a week to really get your foot in the door.
