    Pros

    If you like Axa Equitable as a company, than Axa is the place for you. If you want to be a more well rounded advisor and think outside the box, it is not.

    Cons

    Working at Axa Advisors is best described as working as a sales rep for Axa Equitable. The advisors have the ability to sell a multitude of financial products, but every incentive in the world to sell only Axa Equitable products, which are obviously not the most appropriate in every circumstance.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is that they treat thier employees better. Don't nickel and dime them as much as you do.
