    I worked at AXA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    lots to learn, able to gain lots of information while shadowing current financial advisors,

    Cons

    long hours, competitive, aggressive hours and phone time, needed to take test while working constantly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management is good, everyone knows what they are supposed to do so they truly hassle for their clients and money.

    I have been working at AXA

    Pros

    This is a huge well-known company which has therefore to face some challenging problems: concerning the risk, the regulators are very strict for instance.
    Well structured with efficient managers.

    Cons

    I believe the size has also a downside part: it is very difficult to understand the whole business and we have the feeling that our work has no impact on a such huge company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should have a more flexible organization. We would feel more invested if we knew more people in the company.

    Pros

    Scheduling flexibility in the advisor role, some useful tools for financial planning are provided, company offers its advisors the opportunity to go on salary early

    Cons

    The service center is a joke, the technology there is pathetic, AXA always has a hand in your pocket stealing half your paycheck

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on providing opportunity for new advisors. Create marketing plans that go beyond "sell things to friends and family."
