    Pros

    Great team, flexible hours, the more you put in the more you get out

    Cons

    on your own, start in debt over $1,000 before you can start doing anything, employers hire you based on who you know and how many wealthy individuals you know

    Advice to Management

    Find better ways to support new employees while they are studying for their tests and better ways to ease them into the business

    Cons

    AXA home office doesnt really care about the AXA Advisors branch, so the budget is not good for things like supplies, competent operational staff, etc.

    Pros

    great benefits, strong company, ongoing online training programs

    Cons

    the sales manager is king of the branch. if you work well with this person and if the branch is growing and successful, you may enjoy the branch. If not, it's going to be a tough struggle. Also, local branch offices feel a little like a small company, but with huge bureaucratic home office politics and confusion to report back to.

    Advice to Management

    the branch operations manager used to have a separate manager and liaison. AXA no longer has this supporting manager to help the operations team run a successful branch. This has created a disastrous environment for the operations team.

    Pros

    Opportunity to use Network with Insurance and Investments, 401k match group life di. No real schedule you work when your clients need you.

    Cons

    W-2 vs other networks 1099 pay, health benefits awful, cost of E&O Insurance is outrageous, cost of salesforce and other required CRM is outrageous, minimum requirements to not be fired are high. Opportunity is just that, you still need to go find your clients.

    Advice to Management

    Take away minimum requirements, let us choose our own E&O, and get rid of the W-2 system, I lose 1/3 of my paycheck to the government and they aren't working any harder.

    Pros

    Training is very good and ongoing

    Cons

    Need to provide more leads for new reps and pair them up with seasoned producers. Do not take this job unless you have 5-8 years where you can stomach 3-4 nights a week and 50-70 hours weeks. Your average the first few years could be 30-50k and you will need to have money in the bank to get thru tough months. If you make it this is one of the greatest jobs you can have - but only 10% make it.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest in the interview process.

    Pros

    You have the potential to run your own business if you have the network to do it.

    Cons

    They like to promote the company and working there by talking about their intense training program and their large retention rate. The training program is almost non-existent and all but 1 of the people I started with have since moved on.
