    Great exposure and learning opportunity

    Analyst (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsTeam pushes you to generate results. Regular input on performance. Not hard to get advice when needed. Tasks with clear impact are given to patient, hard-working individuals.

    ConsCulture is extremely competitive and strongly discourages interacting with most others around workplace. Support/assistance is scarce otherwise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncorporate more training options (e.g. online resources) for more driven individuals

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Financial Advisor

    Financial Advisor (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsWide variety of resources since the company is international . Company provides decent sales training if you are new to sales. You will virtually be just a salesman who calls themselves a "Financial Advisor" and you don't even have to have any type of financial background to be a financial advisor which is totally ridiculously sad but true

    ConsCompany will tell you whatever they think you want to hear to get you in the door. They will tell you that you will earn 100k + if you just work hard which only 2% of advisors really make annually . Most advisors make around 20k their first year and you will be fired if you don't meet certain quotas. It's a revolving door company policy and after most employees really see what the company is about they leave. There is over a 60% turnover rate annually so you can do the math

    Advice to Senior ManagementTELL THE TRUTH !! Applicants deserve that at the minimum! Don't just try to get individuals in the door!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    "AXA Advisors is where I started my career"... "I can easily say it is where I will likely finish"...

    Financial Consultant (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsAXA Advisors is where I started my career and after just 3 short years, I can easily say it is where I will likely finish it. A company is only as good as the people who comprise it, and I will say the people that make up our organization are truly amazing. In a day where financial services companies seem to offer any and every product and service under the sun, AXA Advisors has been able to differentiate itself through its innovation, dedication and support. The platform we operate on is extensive, the level of training is unparalleled, and the resources available to a 24 year old financial professional are unmatched. When I started, if you would have told me I would be teaching CPAs and attorneys about certain elements of complex trust and estate planning strategies across the country, I would have thought you were crazy. The leadership, management, and resources backing our firm allow me to not only work in that space, but to thrive in it.

    From a compensation standpoint, I have found AXA Advisors’ payouts to be amongst the most competitive in the industry. The potential for virtually unlimited compensation and my entrepreneurial spirit allow me to work when and where I desire and ultimately say, "If it's to be, it's up to me."

    I have been truly blessed to come into a situation with phenomenal leadership, excellent systems, and a career opportunity where the demand for what I do appears to be increasing exponentially as the baby boomer generation continues to age. I believe that successful people will be successful regardless of the situation they are in. AXA Advisors enables those types of individuals to truly impact the lives of hundreds if not thousands of people, while providing the potential for substantial income.

    A great place to gain experience and grow.

    (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    Pros1. Team.and family environment.
    2. Managers genuinely care about their agents/employees and seem to always be available, you don't even have to go to a manager, but other agents are always available as well.
    3. Training is great.
    4. Rewards are great with stock, pension, health/dental, 401k, etc.
    5. Recognition is great on both a local and national level.
    6. Joint work is always an option for both the newer and older agent.

    Cons1. You have to work 40 + hours if you're going to make it in the business. There is no such thing as overtime pay.
    2. Technology is not new.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate the technology.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
