AXA Advisors is a leader in helping individuals and businesses address their financial goals through financial strategies, investment services and… AXA Advisors
I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (More than 3 years)
AXA Advisors is a great place to learn the business and build a thriving financial practice, covering planning, asset management, and risk management. The company provides a combination of online learning, classroom learning, and mentoring. The benefits include commissions, stock options, 401K, and pension plan. Successful advisers typically make over $100,000 after three to four years.
The company makes clear that it is looking for people who are entrepreneurial. This job is not easy. Fewer than 20% of the people that start at AXA Advisors (similar to industry avg.) can make it a career. Advisers after six months most pay E&O insurance, software licensing fee, etc. It adds up, if you're not making money.
Advice to Management
AXA needs to improve it's technology. Getting approval for advertising, etc. can be very cumbersome.
