    Pros

    Good training with a very helpful staff and management. Strong sales method. If you follow their sales training to the end, you should be successful.

    Cons

    AXA Advisors tries to position itself and a balanced non-biased financial planning firm. However, it needs to be made very clear that they are in the business of selling life insurance.

    Pros

    Team 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incorporate more training options (e.g. online resources) for more driven individuals

    Pros

    Wide 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

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    1. 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.

    Cons

    1. 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 ManagementAdvice

    Update the technology.

    you have to be willing to work hard to make it, but there is great support to do so. Once you grow your practice to a certain level it gets a lot easier.
